Alberto on the way to Kentucky

Good Monday to one and all. On the day we honor those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for our country, we are tracking scattered storms and a Tropical Storm. Alberto is down in the Gulf of Mexico, but will impact our weather later Tuesday and Wednesday.

Let’s begin with the weather we have out there today. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will flare up, bringing locally heavy rains that can cause high water issues for some. Outside the storms, temps are deep into the steamy 80s.

Here are your Memorial Day tracking tools:

Alberto continues to spin toward the Florida Panhandle and is strengthening as it gets closer to making landfall:

What’s left of Alberto will then move toward Kentucky later Tuesday into Wednesday, bringing the potential for heavy rain and a few severe storms. Here’s the latest 3 day forecast from the National Hurricane Center:

Here’s are the areas I’m watching for the heaviest rain and possible flooding:

To the right of the track of Alberto, we will need to watch for strong to severe storms developing. Here’s the area I’m highlighting for that potential:

Once Alberto goes by, we will watch additional showers and storms targeting our part of the world. We may even see a slow-moving cut off system working right on top of us into early June. That could become a heavy rain maker, keeping temps quite a bit cooler than we have seen for May.

Have a great Memorial Day and take care.
