Homes damaged as Alberto enters Middle Tennessee

A flood watch is expected for South Florida on Saturday morning as a result of Subtropical Storm Alberto Memorial Day weather forecast: Warm, muggy day with an uncertain afternoon

Thousands have been evacuated from the northern Gulf of Mexico coast of Florida as it braces for subtropical storm Alberto.

Alberto is expected to produce heavy rainfall and flooding over western Cuba, South Florida and the Florida Keys, the National Hurricane Centre said on Sunday. A tropical storm warning is in effect for a stretch of coastline between Aucilla River in Florida's Big Bend and the Alabama-Florida border. The storm that was expected to make landfall later Monday had maximum sustained winds of 60 miles per hour (95 kph) and was moving north at 8 miles per hour (13 kph).

The Accuweather spokesman observed that the weather event's classification, while not a pure tropical system, nonetheless is unsafe, and urged residents to take action to prepare their homes.

Even though Alberto is no longer a subtropical storm, it remains a threat as it moves inland and brings soaking rain in the Southeast, after killing at least two people.

The center of the storm is expected to remain west of the Ocala area, but there is some potential for tornadoes and flooding. "We've never seen one before and we're here celebrating a friend's 20th birthday", Rhumes said.

"My boyfriend and I usually try to go to the store and stock up on lots of bottled water, and get like canned goods and things that won't go bad if our power goes out", she said.

A two- to four-foot storm surge or rise in water is still expected along the coast to the right/east of where Alberto makes landfall.

If you're looking for anything in the Stanley Cup final that even remotely follows logic, you're searching in the wrong place. In the end, it was an ugly play in a game that was full of them, not just from a missed-calls standpoint.


We dealt with some of the outer bands of the storm on Memorial Day and the remnants of Alberto will race to the north, moving into Tennessee and Kentucky heading into tomorrow. Forecasters said Alberto could become a subtropical depression in coming hours as it treks northward.

In Taylor County, there were voluntary evacuations for those in coastal zones and beach communities, mobile homes, RV parks and low-lying areas. No tornadoes were reported Sunday, however, in the Florida Peninsula.

Satellite photos (above) show the center of the storm just offshore of the Florida Panhandle, and the very obvious moisture feed from tropics - the tail - extending in a comma shape just offshore of the peninsula and continuing south.

With all the rain around, Monday's high temperature will only get to about 76 degrees.

Alberto is the first named storm of the 2018 hurricane season - a season that doesn't formally begin until June 1, the National Hurricane Center says.

"It's slowly weakening and it's not regaining any strength", David Roth, of the National Hurricane Center, (NHC) told Reuters news agency.

The season is likely to be "near or above normal", according to the NHC.
