Nicondra: Louisiana no longer under tropical watches

Nicondra: Louisiana no longer under tropical watches

(WVUE) - Alberto's center reformed in the southern Gulf of Mexico early Saturday. Our weather Memorial Day and Tuesday will depend on the eventual track and strength of the storm.

Wind shear and dry air is still plaguing Alberto, but are expected to slacken Sunday giving the storm a chance to strengthen.

The track began trending east on Friday and continues to bring the center of the storm east of Southeast Louisiana. All Louisiana parishes were removed from the watch with only the Mississippi Gulf Coastal under a tropical storm and storm surge watch meaning tropical storm force winds and coastal flooding are still possible for some areas and gusty winds and rain could still occur outside of the watch area.

Saturday brought another day of showers and storms. Some heavy downpours continue into the evening. A flash flood watch remains in effect through Tuesday in case Alberto brings heavy rains our way Monday and Tuesday.

Sunday will be a transition day with not as many storms. Drier air from the fringes of Alberto may limit storm development. The breeze may pick up late in the day and some showers will be possible from time to time.

Memorial Day and Tuesday have the potential for the greatest impacts, if at all, from Alberto.

By the end of next week it will turn sunny hot and dry with near record hot temperatures possible.
