CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Friday started off wet and will remain that way for most of the day.

The rain moved through the Charlotte region Thursday evening and continued through early Friday morning before tapering off around 10 a.m.

Today's rain has shattered the daily rainfall record with 2.39 inches of rain. The old record was 1.10 inches set in 1932.

Thursday also saw the same daily record broken, with 1.45 inches of rain. The previous record was set in 1932 at 1.10 inches of rain.

First Warn Meteorologist Brad Panovich said the total rainfall in the last 24 hours has been 3.85 inches, but surprisingly not much flooding because it has fallen at a relatively moderate rate.

Panovich says the Charlotte region should stay alert for more additional rainfall that can cause rapid water rises in creeks and streams.

Friday's high is expected to be 78 degrees with a predicted overnight low of 66.

There's a 50 percent chance for rain both Saturday and Sunday, with overnight lows predicted in the high 60s.
