  • Showers and storms with locally heavy rain is expected Thursday at the Outer Banks

As of early Thursday morning, over nine inches of rain has fallen in Wilmington since Monday.

Some of the heaviest rain fell around the Port City Wednesday, prompting the National Weather Service to issue a Flash Flood Warning for much of the afternoon.

Flooding was also reported in eastern Brunswick County Wednesday afternoon.

The heavy rain threat has now ended in the Cape Fear region, and sunshine is expected Thursday around Wilmington.

Showers and storms will be likely through the day for farther up the coast along the Outer Banks. Since the Outer Banks has not seen as much rain this week, there's just a marginal risk for flooding there today.
