Heavy rains caused light flooding around the Charlotte region Sunday night and prompted the National Weather Service to issue a tornado watch, flood watch and flash flood warning, but no major problems had been reported by late in the evening.

The alerts were in effect for Cabarrus, Gaston, Mecklenburg and Union counties, where heavy rains streamed over streets and sidewalks for part of the day.

Monday’s forecast was less dramatic, calling for a chance of showers early and then a chance of thunderstorms after 10 a.m.

The sun will come out again on Tuesday, with a mix of sun and partly cloudy skies the remainder of the week and highs in the low 70s.

The rain could be back for the weekend. There’s a slight chance of rain Friday night and a 50 percent chance of showers on Saturday, when the high will be near 65.
