Monday’s weather is an obstacle to any outdoor Memorial Day plans.

There’s a 90 percent chance of rain during the day, according to the National Weather Service, and showers and thunderstorms are likely in the evening.

The Charlotte area is under a flash flood watch from Sunday night until Tuesday morning, thanks to wet weather from Subtropical Storm Alberto and saturated ground from recent rain, the National Weather Service said.

A chance of showers and thunderstorms continues through the rest of the week.
