Chief Meteorologist Brad Panovich says parts of the Charlotte area could see up to 5 inches of rain as Tropical Depression Florence's heaviest rain bands move in.

"The heaviest and worst is sitting right over us," Panovich said Sunday morning. "A heavy rain band has set up shop from Charlotte down into Florence, South Carolina."

With the center of circulation pushing the storm toward the mountains of western North Carolina, Panovich said some areas around Charlotte could see an additional two to five inches of rain Sunday on top of the three to six inches of rain that fell Saturday across the area. The threats of flash flooding and downed trees remain very high, while the mountains and foothills could be prone to mudslides in the evening hours Sunday.
