FIRST ALERT: First Alert Day for a wet Memorial Day

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - While the weekend days don't appear to have widespread rain, it doesn't look like we will be as lucky on Memorial Day.

A First Alert Day has been declared because it will feature the best chance for heavy rain that could affect outdoor plans for a longer period of time.

Let's start with the rest of the weekend.

Sunday was another warm and muggy one. However, rain chances look to stay around 30 percent.

The best chance will be in the higher elevations. Plus, if you do get rain, it isn't likely to last all that long.

Then comes Monday as we've been watching Subtropical Storm Alberto for several days.

It looks like the storm will be heading for the Florida/Alabama line Monday night or early Tuesday morning.

While the storm itself won't come our way, plenty of moisture will still reach us.

That means rain for Monday. It could be heavy at times. Many areas could pick up an inch or more of rain.

Much of North Carolina is currently under a Flash Flood Watch through Tuesday morning, including  Avery, Cleveland, Lincoln, Gaston, Mecklenburg, Cabarrus, Union, Caldwell, Burke, McDowell and Rutherford County.
