Much needed rain fell in the High Country on Tuesday and Wednesday, but far from enough to break drought conditions or to lift the current burning ban.

The National Weather Service reports that several locations in Watauga and Ashe recorded totals over 3 inches, with other locations coming close to the mark. Seven reporting stations in Watauga recorded 3 inches or more, with the most at the 1 SE Rutherwood station with 3.80 inches. Four other stations reported between 2.04 inches and 2.91 inches. Four other stations recorded between 1.44 inches and 1.68 inches. In Ashe County, two stations recorded totals over 3 inches.

Residents and visitors are reminded that even with that rainfall the current burning ban remains in effect.
