We are tracking full-blown summer conditions for Memorial Day. It will be hot and humid with highs in the mid 80s. The day will begin with some patchy fog followed by intervals of sun and clouds. Much like the past few afternoons, scattered storms will be possible during the afternoon for the Bluegrass. Downpours and lightning could briefly dampen your cookouts and other outdoor plans. Off the three holiday weekend days, tomorrow does look to feature the most dry time for central and eastern Kentucky.

Meanwhile across southern Kentucky, storms will become more numerous during the second half of the day as the first batch of rain from Alberto arrives. Alberto is expected to make landfall along the Alabama/Florida coast late Monday morning or early afternoon. The storm is still covering quite a bit of real estate. The outer rain bands will reach southern Kentucky by late-day. The remnants of Alberto will impact the rest of the Bluegrass mid-week. We are tracking the potential for heavy rain, some strong storms, and gusty winds. Several inches of rain will be possible Tuesday through Thursday.
