Lots of time for dry to go to droughty droughty, takes long time, then boom lots of water fall on dry go wetty wetty, but still takes time to to get rid of it
So why does it take time? You are viewing it very one-dimensionally, whats taking time to reflect improved conditions, certainly not waterways, and definitely not precip totals. Perhaps plants are taken into account for drought monitoring and reflect the lag.

How did the drought for wake county remain the same with the rainfall we have received? I know they take into account many things, not just precip.
Heavy rain probably went more into run off versus absorption given the permeation rates of the loamy and clay soil types found in wake county. Given the extreme precip rates and run off the drought wasn't alleviated well into the root zone the sunny dry and hot conditions along with elevated evapotranspiration likely used up the soil moisture that was introduced by the storms yielding a net 0 effect on the existing drought conditions

Definitely some serious rain again today. Street flooding now an issue.

Any truth to the video on social media of 18 wheelers in Raleigh driving through 4 feet of water?

EXACTLY. As I said, takes time for constant/scattered storms to do work, we need a tropical system or cutoff

2 days with 2+ inch amounts......today closer to 4 inches takes care of things real quick. Out of all the eastern half of the state my little neck of the woods is the only spot under flood advisories.

Few more. Looks like a significant amount of rain heading there way too.

About as deep as I've ever seen. One hurricane a few years ago one road was abt 6inches below the bottom of mailboxes. This isn't far from that.

Drought conditions are starting to get worrisome .. in all seriousness though with all the drought talk .. I think if we continue to see these type of scattered storm days we will eventually pry ourselves out of drought but at the very least it’s making severe drought way less of a possibility vs just abnormally dry conditions
