Alberto Brings Clouds, Rain, Potential Flooding, & Isolated Severe Thunderstorms

Subtropical Depression Alberto’s going to pay a visit to Middle Tennessee today bringing clouds, rain, potential flooding and isolated severe thunderstorms.

As of 5am, Tuesday the center of Alberto was located just west of Montgomery, AL.  Maximum sustained winds were 30 mph.  The system was moving north-northwestward at 13 mph.

The center of what’s left of Alberto will pass just west of I-65 around dinnertime tonight, on its way toward Kentucky, the Midwest, and eventually southern Canada.

FUTURECAST shows how the rain bands will progress today.

Look at how much rain could potentially fall where you live today and tonight with Alberto.

Isolated severe weather’s possible, but not overly likely late this afternoon east of the center of circulation.  That puts the eastern 2/3 of Middle Tennessee under a minimal threat for a few damaging wind gusts or (if we can get some sunshine & decent heating) possibly even an isolated tornado.

Temperatures will be held down significantly today thanks to Alberto’s cloud shield.

Notice rain chances will remain relatively high this week.

There’s also a slightly better chance for severe weather later this week.  Watch News4 at Noon today to hear me explain more about that.  Plus, I’ll highlight why while the weekend does look drier, there’s something we’re watching that could bring a few thunderstorms.
