Alberto To Impact Kentucky This Week

Good afternoon, gang. I wanted to drop by to update the scattered storms and the Kentucky impact from Alberto. This tropical system will bring heavy rain and strong storms our way by later Tuesday into Wednesday.

Alberto continues to be a very disorganized storm heading toward the Florida Panhandle. Once inland, it will weaken quickly to a Tropical Depression and may still be a depression as it moves into Kentucky Tuesday night. Here’s the official track from the National Hurricane Center…

This storm is getting within radar range down in the sunshine state…

I have no changes to the area most at risk from heavy rain here in Kentucky…

Flooding and flash flooding are possible as Alberto works northward across Kentucky. To the east of the track of the low, we will need to be on guard for potential strong to severe storms. Enough spin is sometimes present to spit out a tornado or two.

Here’s the GFS bringing Alberto across west-central Kentucky…

As Alberto goes through, a big upper level system takes control of our weather, leading to additional rounds of showers and storms through the weekend and into next week…

Folks, a lot of rain may fall around here over the next two weeks. This continues to be an incredibly wet year and that looks to roll on into early Summer, at least.

Speaking of heavy rains, the storms of today can put it down in a hurry. Watch for the possibility of local flash flood issues developing. Here are your local storm tracking tools for the day…

Make it a good one and take care.
