BROOKHAVEN — Rain is a good thing and not just because it makes corn or sweet music on a tin roof. Rain is a good thing because we badly need it here in Brookhaven.
It is a good thing Wednesday has a high chance of showers with a 70 percent chance of precipitation and rainfall amounts between a quarter and a half of an inch possible. Showers and thunderstorms are possible in the morning with patchy fog before 9 a.m., so be careful on your way to work. There will be a calm wind becoming south around 5mph in the afternoon. The temperature is a high of 81 and a low of 66 Wednesday night. More rain could be here Wednesday night with the chance of precipitation around 30 percent.
This promise of rain could help snap a drought in Brookhaven. Since September 1, 1.55 inches of rain have fallen and 0 inches of rain have fallen in the month of October. A result of the dry weather was a burn ban issued by the Lincoln County Board of Supervisors.
