Warm and Humid Memorial Day; Chance For Some Rain From The Remnants of Tropical Storm Alberto Late This Week


JAMESTOWN – A Warm font coming across the region, in combination with a big dome of High pressure to our East, in giving us sunshine and very warm conditions to start off the workweek.
The humidity will still be a factor today and tomorrow, as dew points will hang out in the lower to mid 60s both days, giving us that terrible heat index, making it feel warmer than it actually is.
We do back it down on Wednesday, with more human comfort, but a few scattered showers are possible through the day.
Subtropical Storm Alberto: Currently just off shore the Florida Panhandle, Alberto will be making landfall at any moment now (landfall is when the center, or the eye of the storm, makes contact with land). Our main concern will be what’s left of Alberto come later this this week.
The current forecast cone from the National Hurricane Center has Alberto riding up through the Deep South, into the Ohio River Valley as a weak tropical depression, before ultimately moving into Canada. Keep in mind that the storm could jog anywhere within that white cone, hence the term the “cone of uncertainty.”

Due to the center of the storm passing to our west, we do have the chance of catching some of that tropical moisture from the remnants of the circulation Wednesday night through Friday. While this won’t be a big deal with just some tropical-like rain showers, some pockets of heavier rainfall could be possible throughout the day on Thursday.
The majority of this forecast relies on how much of the initial storm remains intact as it works over land. If the system completely falls apart before it reaches the Ohio River Valley, the likelihood of us seeing any of that moisture greatly decreases.
