Continued drought is bad for area, good for visitors to Carolina Beach

From The Wilmington Star-News, a report that most likely means lots of sunny days ahead for visitors to the area:

"The Wilmington area and the rest of the state are now back in drought conditions.

The designation by the U.S. Drought Monitor comes as the region endures La Nina conditions, a weather pattern prompted by a cooling of the waters in the equatorial Pacific that generally means drier conditions in the Southeastern United States.

Through Thursday, the National Weather Service had recorded 2.95 inches of rain at the Wilmington International Airport for 2009. That’s more than 4 inches below normal precipitation levels for the first 50 days of the year."
