Alberto: Tropical storm sees thousands from Florida coast

  • Flood watch in effect for South Florida as Subtropical Storm Alberto heads north

Gulf Coast residents should "take this storm seriously", the National Weather Service said on Sunday as Subtropical Storm Alberto drove north through the Gulf of Mexico, threatening heavy rains and winds to the southern coastal states.

Florida Governor Rick Scott issued the declaration for all 67 counties in his state.

The storm prompted Florida, Alabama and MS to launch emergency preparations over the weekend amid expectations Alberto would reach land sometime Monday.

The center of the storm is foreast to pass through the Midwest, so Upstate New York is unlikely to get flooding rains. Tornadoes are not expected on the Coast, the weather service said.

Alberto may strengthen slightly in the next several hours, but it looks like it has run out of time to transition to a fully tropical storm before it makes landfall around noon Monday on the Florida panhandle. "It has maximum sustained winds of 65 mph, which is about 10 miles shy of being a hurricane". Rough conditions were expected to roil the seas off the eastern and northern Gulf Coast region through Tuesday. The storm is also pushing rain bands towards the coast, Gardner said, so there could be some heavy rain there as well.

The Emerald Coast remains under a storm surge watch and a tropical storm warning.

Any additional dry air will continue to weaken rain near Alberto's center and rain bands associated with the storm. At the moment nearly all of the showers are on the east of Alberto's centre, with the heaviest rains falling across Cuba and Florida.

The National Hurricane Center said Alberto, the first storm of the soon-to-begin 2018 hurricane season, would not likely get any stronger before coming ashore this afternoon.

Initially predicted to be just a rainmaker for the Wiregrass, Subtropical Storm Alberto now poses some other threats for southeastern Alabama.

The hurricane center said Sunday that a tropical storm warning was in effect from Bonita Beach, Florida, to the Mississippi-Alabama border.

At 2 a.m. EDT Sunday, the National Hurricane Center in Miami said Alberto was about 380 miles (615 kilometers) south of Apalachicola, Florida, and moving north-northeast at 13 mph (20 kph). It is showing signs of transitioning to something more tropical as deeper convection has developed near the center. On top of that, there could be as much as $600 million in lost holiday spending as Alberto puts a damper on plans during the Memorial Day three-day weekend.
