TRACKING FRED: Flooding a concern as heavy rain pushes through western Carolinas; wet weather lingers in Charlotte through weekend


(FOX 46 CHARLOTTE) – Fred tracks through the western Carolinas on Tuesday bringing with it heavy rain. Expect 2-3” totals across the mountains and foothills. Isolated totals over 5” are possible in the highest mountains.

FLASH FLOOD WATCHES are posted for our mountain counties including Avery, Burke, and Caldwell through 8 AM Wednesday.

Watch for mudslides where the ground is already so saturated. Winds may gust to 30 mph but will be a minor concern on Tuesday.

Clouds and heavy rain keep us cool with highs in the lower 80s.

Fred works on pulling away on Wednesday, we may be left with some heavy rain in the morning before showers fizzle out in the afternoon.

The pattern stays active through the rest of the week. A stalled front, tropical moisture, increasing heat and humidity mean scattered showers/storms remain possible daily. Temperatures gradually climb from cooler 80s to hotter temperatures near 90 degrees by the weekend.
