Alert Day Issued 5.28.18

An Alert Day is currently out for Tuesday PM into the overnight/early Wednesday.

The reason?  The leftovers of the tropical system "Alberto" will be passing through WAVE Country during this time.

The track/speed of the timing determines the impacts you can witness with such a system.

As it stands now, much of WAVE Country would fall on the eastern side of the path.  This would put us in line for off/on rain bands with isolated tornadoes and gusty winds.  
Those to the west along the path would experience of a steady, heavy rain for a few hours that could lead to some flash flooding.  
The track can still wobble 50 miles east or west as we get closer, so make sure to stay close to the forecast updates.

Between now and then...it will be a hot afternoon for this Memorial Day.  Isolated thunderstorms will be possible.
There remains a risk for the first far outer band of Alberto to push a rain band into our southern counties after 4pm.  It will likely fade as it travels too far away from Alberto and loses its drive to keep going.  Will it make it to Louisville this evening before that happens? It is possible, but I am leaning toward it fading just before.  It'll be close.

Most of Tuesday will be humid and very warm.  The coverage of rain in the afternoon will start to increase.  Especially if we pick up more sunshine than expected.  You really won't notice much of a change in our weather until the core of Alberto moves in after sunset.  At that point, the breeze will pick up and so will some of the rain bands.  Alberto should be out of WAVE Country by the time you wake up on Wednesday.

We won't be done with the thunderstorm risk, however,  A couple waves of thunderstorms are possible late Wednesday and again late Thursday that could contain some damaging winds.  The risk is also there for the weekend, but support for it is low at this time. Something I will be tracking in the midst of Alberto headlines.

The video is attached to hopefully explain this better visually.
Make it a Goode Day!
