Alberto, which spun up days before the formal start of the 2018 hurricane season, was moving north at about 13 miles per hour (20 km/h) with maximum sustained winds near 40 miles per hour, and higher gusts, on Saturday, the NWS said.
Saturation from previous rain on the Gulf Coast has created a danger of falling trees with the upcoming wind.
Conditions are favorable for Alberto to develop into a tropical storm since shearing winds are expected to ease by Sunday, which would concentrate thunderstorms closer to Alberto's low-pressure circulation and warm its core.
The biggest impact is likely to come from a combination of heavy rains and storm surge.
A subtropical storm has a less defined and cooler center than a tropical storm, and its strongest winds are found farther from its center. Heavy bands of rain and localized flooding continue to be a threat.
The storm is loose and disorganized on Saturday morning. A flash flood watch has been posted for parts of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and large areas of Florida. "Areas along the coast could see up to 18" of rainfall as for us we could see totals anywhere from 5-8". A tropical storm watch is in place from the New Orleans area to the Aucilla River in the Florida panhandle. Cuba maintained its tropical storm watch for the province of Pinar del Rio, while Mexico cancelled its watch for the resort-dotted coast of the Yucatan peninsula, where the storm brought heavy rain.
Alberto will weaken considerably by the time it reach. Up to half an inch of rain was expected to fall in Bradenton on Saturday night.
Alberto will move into the Gulf of Mexico later today. The current thinking is that Alberto will move northward through the eastern Gulf tomorrow, then slow down and ride along the central Gulf Coast through the day on Monday before making landfall between Pensacola and Ft.
Alberto will likely be the second time Mayor LaToya Cantrell's administration will be tested by severe weather in its first three weeks in office.
