Subtropical Storm Alberto Turns North-Northwest, No Change In Strength

Subtropical Storm Alberto continues to churn north through the Gulf of Mexico

On the current path it will make landfall as a subtropical torm. somewhere across the western Florida Panhandle. There is also a high risk of unsafe rip currents and extremely rough bay waters.

The governors of Florida, Alabama and MS all declared states of emergency ahead of the storm. At 11 a.m.it was 130 miles west southwest of Tampa.

Our weather today will have periods of rain, some will be heavy at times. And in the Tampa Bay area on the central Gulf Coast, cities offered sandbags for homeowners anxious about floods.

Heavy downpours were expected to begin lashing parts of Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama on Sunday.

The center said a tropical storm warning is in effect from the Suwannee River in Florida to the Mississippi-Alabama state line. Mid to upper 80's are possible by Friday with just a few showers and storms around.

Doody said while this storm may be an isolated case, weather in the Bay State this Memorial Day weekend will be cooler than normal and fairly cloudy, though he suggests that you might want to stay away from beaches.

Mr Graham said: "So we need to really be careful with that rainfall".

Sleep in this weekend
The study wasn't ideal and had limitations, including study subjects not being observed directly and self-reporting their sleep habits.

Strong to severe storms will also be possible embedded in the rain on Sunday.

Tommy Whitlock said sandbagging has become an usual event in his life since he lives next to a creek. "We're talking eight to 12 inches of rain this weekend, and storm surges on the Gulf Coast".

On its current forecast track, Alberto is expected to continue its slow journey north until making a turn to the northwest Monday as it approaches the north-central Gulf coast, the hurricane center said.

News4 will be highlighting the potential for flooding as we head into next week.

Alberto is expected to strengthen until it reaches the northern Gulf Coast, likely on Monday night.

Waves as high as 18 feet were forecast for northern Gulf beaches. A high surf warning was in effect through 7 p.m. Tuesday local time.

Sunday afternoon and evening are expected to bring heavy rain and winds between about 15 and 18 miles per hour, according to the National Weather Service in Charleston. It is showing signs of transitioning to something more tropical as deeper convection has developed near the center.
