Storm Alberto maintains strength as it approaches Gulf Coast

Storm Alberto maintains strength as it approaches Gulf Coast

With the region just shy of 7 inches above average when it comes to yearly rain (6.82 inches as of May 29) any big rain totals will bring with it the chance for river and flash flooding.

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. "There's not going to be a lot of grilling or boating going on - it's going to be messy".

This five-day outlook shows the likely path subtropical depression Alberto will take north across the United States.

Some storms could be strong to severe with heavy rain leading to the potential for flooding. Finally, on Friday, it appears that another inch of rain will be possible.

After Alberto's passage, Royal Dutch Shell Plc was sending workers back to the eastern Gulf of Mexico and Chevron Corp restored some production on Monday. One to four hurricanes could be "major" with sustained winds of at least 111 miles per hour (178 kph).

Otherwise, temperatures are very warm and quite muggy outside with most starting out in the mid 70s. Showers should be relatively light, with the exception of an isolated storm or two.

Gov. Roy Cooper issued a statement calling on North Carolina residents from the mountains to the coast to watch the weather and be prepared.

A flash flood watch will be in effect until Tuesday night, 8 pm and a wind advisory is in place for parts of wester Georgia during the overnight hours. In some cases, rainfall could top 10 inches in pockets across the state.

Additionally, there's a "secret stash" in the new shop that's full of discounted items that will change on occasion. You'll find tons of new clothing, special clothing or items to buy for your character, and other add-ons.


Janet Rhumes said her group of friends from Kansas had been planning their Memorial Day weekend on Navarre Beach since October.

At its height, Alberto, the first storm of the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season, blasted sustained winds of 105km/h with gusts that packed full hurricane punches of 121km/h, said meteorologist David Roth of the National Weather Service.

Meanwhile, potentially life-threatening rough surf and rip currents continued on the northern Gulf Coast after Alberto rolled up big waves and tides along the coast.

In addition to parts of the southeastern USA, the heavy rains and storm conditions could produce "life-threatening flash floods and mudslides" in Cuba, the NHC said.

With conditions expected to worsen overnight officials are encouraging vacationers leaving the Gulf Coast on Monday to give themselves extra time.

On Thursday, another half-inch to a full inch of rain will be possible.
