CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV - High school football games and community events are announcing schedule changes and postponements due to expected weekend impacts to the Carolinas from the remnants of Hurricane Ian.

Additionally, some school districts will learn remotely at the end of the week.

The remnants of Ian are forecast to move up into the Carolinas Friday night and Saturday, and that appears to be the timeframe when the heaviest rain can be expected. A First Alert Weather Day has been declared for Saturday. The main impacts locally appear to be flash flooding from three, to perhaps as much as six inches of rain and gusty winds of 35+ mph. The tornado threat looks low at this time.
