NBC Charlotte is tracking the threat of some heavy which could result in some flooding for some parts of the Carolinas. 

First Warn chief meteorologist Brad Panovich said the storm system is bringing a lot of moisture with it.  

The combination of a lot of rain and melting snow in some areas can increase our risk of isolated flooding, according to Panovich.

Panovich said, usually, if we get an inch or an inch and a half of rain, it's not a big issue, but with the recent snowfall, the additional moisture is going to cause significant flooding issues.

Flood watch until 5 p.m. Saturday
