« Severe Threat Posted Ahead of Alberto | Main | Alberto's Impacts Start TODAY: Memorial Day Hour By Hour »


Storm Potential Tonight and Memorial Day

We saw a couple severe thunderstorms and many more strong storms earlier in the day.   As the sun sets on Sunday and rises on Memorial Day, we don't lose our storm chance. 


Satellite/radar from today shows the unsettled atmosphere over us today that sparked our storms.  Alberto is spinning up the rain you see in Georgia/South Carolina. With fronts to our north and west and the system southeast of here, our warm and humid air mass is locked in.  That means storms will still be possible tonight and tomorrow. 


Tonight's storms continue to move south, so the higher threat for storms the rest of this evening will be along and south of the Kentucky parkways.  The atmosphere supports rain/storm pop-ups until midnight. 


Much like Saturday and Sunday, Monday morning should be dry and partly cloudy.   Also like Saturday and Sunday, storms will start to pop up during the early afternoon on Monday. 


That storm chance continues until after sunset, just like the last several days.  The areal coverage of the storms doesn't look impressive here, but the forecast models have been under-doing our storm chances all weekend, so I expect to see a few more storms than what this shows. 


Most of you will stay dry Monday, but not all of you.  AdvanceTrack shows less than 1/10" of rain even for those of you who see storms Monday. 


We stay hot and humid, too, for Memorial Day.  High temperatures will climb into the upper 80s with dewpoints in the upper 60s and low 70s.  On WDRB News at 10 tonight, I'll track these storm chances for you hour-by-hour to help you plan your holiday.
