Remnants of Alberto to bring more storm activity to the area


Temperatures have been back in the mid 80s this afternoon with a few locations staying cooler because of rain showers and storms. Scattered showers and storms have been popping up because of the heat and humidity, but also because of Alberto. The outer bands are already reaching portions of Southern Kentucky. Pop-up storms will produce heavy downpours, lightning, and gusty wind at times. The rain of the outer band is producing lighter showers for now. All activity will decrease through late evening. An isolated shower is still possible overnight and early Tuesday. Tonight will be mild and muggy with lows in the upper 60s and highs Tuesday will be in the low 80s. Storm chances pickup through the day Tuesday. A Flash Flood Watch will go into effect Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday morning. The heaviest rain will fall just west of the viewing area with a possible 1 to 3 inches of rain. Some storms Tuesday could be on the strong to isolate severe side. Wednesday will be breezy with showers and storms likely. Rain and storm chances continue Thursday and Friday with highs in the low to mid 80s. Drier weather looks to move in next weekend with dropping dew points. It will feel less sticky Saturday and Sunday with highs in the low to mid 80s. Isolated rain chances are still possible.
