Local flash flood threat the next few days

Good Wednesday, folks. It’s a very busy pattern as what’s left of Alberto continues to work across Kentucky and the Ohio Valley. Rounds of showers and thunderstorms continue to move across the area for the next few days, leading to the potential for flash flooding.

As the core of Alberto works northward into Indiana, feeder bands of showers and storms will develop across much of the state this afternoon and evening. The main issue to watch for is training of cells that can lead to local high water issues developing.

A few of the storms may also be strong or severe. Here’s the latest outlook from the Storm Prediction Center:

As that system continues to pull away on Thursday, deep tropical moisture remains as another system works in from west to east late in the day. That may fuel additional strong to severe storms through Thursday night. Here’s the Thursday Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center:

Torrential rains from the thunderstorms may cause additional high water issues into Friday. Unfortunately, another system may bring more storms for the weekend:

This is not a setup for all day rains, but when the storms do go up, they can put down a tremendous amount of rain in a short amount of time. Let’s be mindful of the high water through with each storm that goes up.

Outside of the thunderstorm action, it’s a steam bath with temps deep into the 80s on occasion.

Here are your tracking toys for the day:
