Rain, rain, go away—come again another day! Lincoln County set a new record for Monday, May 6 — the most rainfall on May 6 in our history. 2.02 inches of rain were officially recorded. Add that to the .86 from Sunday and the total is nearly three inches. So far this year, Lincoln County has had 14.36 inches of rain.

Some counties north and west of Lincoln got even more rain. Caldwell County had over seven inches over the weekend. There were certain locations in Cleveland and Catawba that got larger amounts.

The forecast calls for a 50% chance of rain today, Tuesday, May 7. After some later day sunshine on Monday, Lincoln Countians awoke to a mix of clouds this morning. Those clouds may thicken and produce scattered downpours late in the day and overnight. The extended forecast also calls for a possibility of another wet weekend coming up.

Residents of riverfront homes in Cramerton in Gaston County saw the waters of the South Fork River lap at their back doorsteps, and Mountain Island Lake on the Catawba River near Mt. Holly reached flood stage. In the immediate Lincolnton area, the flooding was minimal as of late Monday, but the runoff from smaller streams is still adding to the level of the South Fork.
