Alert Day Update 5.30.18

2 Alert Days in effect

#1
The remnants of Alberto passing through.  
Concerns:  Heavy rain/flash flooding, gusty winds near 40 mph for isolated tree damage and/or power outages
The main outer band is the one that will impact most of WAVE Country through lunch/afternoon.  The core of Alberto continues to track north through Indiana.  The rain bands will need to be watched for any repeating motion.  That can add up fast when it comes to rain totals and lead to flash flooding.  That will be something to monitor.  Once Alberto lifts farther north this afternoon, the southern flank of it will be exposed to a few sun breaks. That should lead to scattered thunderstorms that can also lead to brief flash flooding.  Not everyone will experience the heavy rain or strong wind gusts.  The most likely zone remains roughly along/west of I-65 through lunch and north of I-64 this afternoon.

#2
Strong to severe thunderstorms expected
Concerns:  Damaging winds over 60-65 mph, flash flooding, isolated tornado, some hail
With so much tropical moisture around (thanks Alberto), the amount of fuel for thunderstorms tomorrow is insane.  All it needs is a match. And that looks to be the case in the afternoon and evening as wind fields increase aloft combined with decent amount of sunshine/heating.  The ingredients are there for multiple clusters of severe thunderstorms.  There is the potential that we could experience multiple rounds if the atmosphere can build back up again before sunset.  In general, the radar is likely to look very active tomorrow afternoon/evening.  Based on the latest info, SPC will likely raise and expand the severe thunderstorm threat for parts of WAVE Country.  Stay close to the forecast as we get a better handle on things tomorrow.

The weekend looks mainly dry with just one issue of a wave of moisture passing through Sunday AM that could generate some thunderstorms.  The data is all over the place with that so the chance is low for now.

We heat up again next week with another round of strong t-storms near June 8th.

Here is today's video!  Have a Goode Day!
