Alberto to impact our weather in the week ahead

Good Sunday, everyone. Steamy temps and scattered storms continue to dominate our Memorial Day weekend weather. As we track this action, we also focus on Alberto down in the Gulf of Mexico. That system is likely to impact our weather by Wednesday.

In the short-term, scattered showers and storms continue to press across the state today. Any storm that’s out there may contain heavy rains and contain a lot of lightning. Watch for local high water issues, especially in the south and east. Highs will be in the 80s.

Here are the day’s tracking tools:

Your Memorial Day weather looks a lot like today. Scattered storms and steamy temps continue to rule the forecast.

Alberto continues as a Tropical Storm down in the Gulf of Mexico as it heads toward the central Gulf Coast states. The 5 day forecast track continues to bring this into Kentucky as a Tropical Depression:

The location of the heaviest rain depends on the exact track of what’s left of Alberto. We will also need to watch for some strong storms to develop to the right of that track.

The models are still very consistent in bringing what’s left of the system right on top of Kentucky. They also dive a second system in right behind it with more showers and storms:

The latest Hurricane Models are tightly clustered on a track across Kentucky:

Have a great Sunday and take care.
