Subtropical Storm Alberto heads to the US Gulf

Subtropical Storm Alberto heads to the US Gulf

The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch for an area stretching from MS to North Carolina that is home to millions of people.

More showers and possibly another thunderstorm in the afternoon are possible on Monday, Memorial Day. 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 NHC also announced cancellations of a tropical storm warning for the west coast of Florida south of the Anclote River and a storm surge watch along the northern Gulf Coast west of Navarre.

Rick Scott (R) also declared a state of emergency in all of the state's 67 counties on Saturday. While temperatures have been warm and flawless for hitting the lake or pool, afternoon showers and storms could have dampened those plans. 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. The governors of Florida, Alabama and MS all declared states of emergency ahead of the storm.

Alberto is the first named storm in the Atlantic in 2018.

Although Alberto is not expected to make landfall on the US Gulf Coast until 00:00 GMT on Tuesday, heavy rains are expected to start across the region today and continue for several days.

The flood watch is issued for portions of northeast SC and southeast North Carolina, including Horry and Georgetown counties and neighboring areas, according to the NWS. However, Alberto is forecast to track northward before showing up on our door late Tuesday.

"I'm doing this because every time we have a hard rain, it floods at my house", resident Tommy Whitlock told the Associated Press. Just because it's sunny after the storm passes, Medlin said, there's still a risk for swimmers. Anyone thinking about going out onto the water is urged to use caution.

Mandatory evacuations were issued for Franklin County's barrier islands and anybody living on the coastline in mobile homes and recreational vehicle parks. Judah noted the sustained winds in the area would be between 30 and 45 miles per hour with some gusts up to 50 miles per hour possible. The deepest water will occur along the immediate coast, the NHC said.

A subtropical storm like Alberto has a less defined and cooler center than a tropical storm, and its strongest winds are found farther from its center.

"It looks like Memorial Day will be our ugly weather day", National Weather Service meteorologist Phil Grigsby said Saturday.
