Unsettled week ahead after heavy rain moves through Carolinas Sunday
10 p.m.

NORTH CAROLINA (WBTV) - * Unsettled week ahead!
* Not as hot but still humid
* Time to catch up on rain

We have an upper level low spinning around to our north and it will be parked in the same spot for most of the week.

That means we have a chance for rain each of the next few days.

On one hand, it will be cooler due to more cloud cover and a better chance for rain. On the other hand, it will still be muggy and rain may impact plans - at least off and on.

It won't be raining all day every day.

However, as the stream of moisture moves in from the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic, there will at least be a chance for rain at any time. A few pockets of heavy rain can't be ruled out.

We'll keep you posted!

8 p.m.

Thunderstorms moved across the WBTV-viewing area Sunday.

Just like the past few days, it has been hit or miss, feast or famine. Some spots have picked up several inches of rain, while others have gotten nothing.

As of now, there is still an Areal Flood Advisory in effect for Cabarrus and Rowan Co until 9:30pm. You have picked up more than three inches in some spots.

The pockets of heavy rain are moving to the northeast and should clear the area by about 10 p.m.

In the meantime, if you are in the eastern-most counties, the rain will continue to be heavy for just a while longer before moving along.

In Concord, police reported storm debris and damage that closed a street and caused stoplight outages in the city.

The next few days will continue to be unsettled.

There is a 60 percent chance for showers and thunderstorms Monday through Wednesday. It certainly won't be raining the whole time.

There may not even be too many severe thunderstorms. However, pockets of heavy rain will be the biggest potential issue.

We will keep you posted all week long!
