Alberto forms in the Gulf, flooding rains forecast

Alberto forms in Caribbean, bringing wet weekend to Florida

Currently, there is a 90%, or high, chance that this becomes either our first tropical depression or tropical storm of the 2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season. Of those storms, five to nine are predicted to reach hurricane status, including one to four major hurricanes, which feature sustained winds of 111 miles per hour or higher.

Subtropical Storm Alberto was "meandering over the northwestern Caribbean Sea" Friday afternoon, causing unsafe surf and rip current conditions on the Yucatan and the west coast of Cuba, according to the the center's website.

The slow-moving storm will also dump heavy rain across much of the southeastern United States through Memorial Day weekend.

He said: "This developing system will have a tough time strengthening while over land into most of Friday". A ridge of high pressure will build in from the southwest, producing the hottest weather of the year so far.

Rain chances are at 70 to 80 percent throughout the Memorial Day weekend and not expected to let up until mid-week, at 40 percent. An average hurricane season -- June 1 to November 30 -- produces 12 named storms, of which six become hurricanes, including three major hurricanes.

National Weather Service meteorologists said details of the weekend forecast are dependent on the track and development of would-be Alberto in the Gulf of Mexico.

We have one more day of rain and storms to get through before the sun finally makes a comeback.

Beach goers this weekend will want to be very careful while entering the Gulf of Mexico as rip currents will be deadly before the weather even starts to settle in, so swimming Saturday should be avoided.

"The usual low-lying areas will flood", DeCarlo said.

"Rain totals over the next 5-7 days should reach the 2-4" range with locally higher amounts. Wet weather will be most likely in the late afternoon and evening.

Severe storms on Thursday raged from Minnesota to Georgia, creating flooding and damaging trees and homes.
