    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Rain moving through the Charlotte area has left more than 1.5 inches of rain and it will continue through Saturday night.

    The storm is moving into the Georgia coast and will linger until pushing offshore Sunday morning. Until the storm moves off the coast, the viewing area will have a chance of rain.

    The rain will grow lighter around 6 p.m. in Charlotte, with heavier rain in the Foothills.

    The top threat for the storm is flooding, but no watches or warnings are in effect at this time.

    Saturday night will bring patchy drizzle and fog. This kind of weather will be possible on Easter morning. There could be a few showers for sunrise services, especially in the eastern parts of the viewing area.

    The rain will move on for the rest of Sunday, but the clouds will linger. Sunshine will return to the forecast on Monday.
