Gulf Coast braces for Subtropical Storm Alberto

Gulf Coast braces for Subtropical Storm Alberto

Subtropical storm Alberto is the first tropical weather system of the 2018 hurricane season and could bring heavy rain to Florida and the Gulf Coast; chief meteorologist Rick Reichmuth reports from the Fox Extreme Weather Center.

Tropical storm warnings and watches have been issued for parts of the MS coast all the way to the western Gulf Coast of Florida.

Subtropical Storm Alberto is delivering heavy rain and gusty winds to Florida on Sunday morning with current projections showing the storm making landfall in the Panhandle as a tropical storm tomorrow.

For storm information specific to your area, including possible inland watches and warnings, please monitor products issued by your local National Weather Service forecast office.

Alberto's movement was expected to accelerate Saturday night.

After meandering on Friday, Alberto gained some strength on Saturday and forecasters said it could transition from subtropical to full tropical status - a change dictated by the system's structure and the factors influencing its power.

In the 10th, he found the highlight-finish following a clean eight-punch flurry with a viciously placed hook to the body. He was stopped in the 11th round by Antonio DeMarco in a fight for a vacant lightweight title in 2011 at Staples Center.


At 5 a.m., the hurricane center said the center of Subtropical Storm Alberto was located near latitude 25.0 North, longitude 84.2 West.

"This is jogging more to the east and will hit the Florida panhandle", Burke said. The storms sustained winds have increased to 45 miles per hour and expected to grow before the storm reaches the Gulf Coast on Monday afternoon.

The governors of Florida, Alabama and MS all declared states of emergency ahead of the storm Saturday. Altogether we're looking at a solid 2-3 inches of rain from Alberto with locally-heavier amounts possible where heavy storms set up.

Tropical Storm Warnings are in effect along the entire Gulf Coast. In Cancun, local newspapers showed scenes of some streets flooded to mid-hubcap level. Steady weakening is expected after landfall, and Alberto is forecast to become a tropical depression by Monday night or Tuesday. "I have directed essential state agencies to be on the ready should they be needed over the next couple of days", Ivey said.

A Tropical Storm Watch has been issued for the west coast of the Florida peninsula from Boca Grande to Anclote River. The NWS said a flash flood watch would be in effect from Saturday evening through Tuesday evening for southeastern MS, much of southern Alabama, and the western Florida Panhandle.

An isolated tornado could be possible in the outer bands of the storm and weather and emergency management officials are urging people to pay close attention to the weather over the weekend.
