Tracking The Local Flash Flood Threat

Good Wednesday, everyone. The remnants of Alberto continue to work from south to north across the western part of the state, bringing heavy rains to this part of the region. The local flash flood threat is confined to western Kentucky then goes areawide today through Thursday night, as rounds of tropical rain producing showers and storms develop.

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. 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…

Let me be clear that it is NOT going to rain all the time over the next several days. But, when it does rain, the atmosphere can absolutely unload on some areas, creating high water issues.

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

Here are your tracking tools for a stormy day…
