CHARLOTTE, N.C. - August will start off unsettled, with the heaviest rain slated to push across the mountains and foothills, where a flood watch is up into Friday.
There will be no big storms, according to chief meteorologist Steve Udelson, just rain totaling two or more inches for many mountain communities.
Rain becomes spottier east into the Charlotte Metro area, but at least the first half of Friday will be wet before the area dries out during the afternoon.
The weekend is back to a more typical summer pattern with more late-day thunderstorms.
Temperatures remain below average into next week with a high of 90 degrees possible by Wednesday.
Rain expected Friday morning, storms during the weekend
