84 percent of weekends have seen rain in 2018

RALEIGH (WTVD) -- Do you feel like it has rained every weekend this year? Well, you're nearly right.

If you count the weekend as just Saturday and Sunday, it has rained on two out of every three weekends of 2018.

"When you factor Fridays in, over 80 percent of the weekends have had rainfall," ABC11 Meteorologist Don "Big Weather" Schwenneker said.
