Storm Alberto maintains strength as it approaches Gulf Coast

A flood watch is expected for South Florida on Saturday morning as a result of Subtropical Storm Alberto Memorial Day weather forecast: Warm, muggy day with an uncertain afternoon

A satellite image shows Alberto as it nears landfall on the Florida Panhandle and the Gulf Coast on Monday.

Alberto got an early jump on the 2018 hurricane season, which doesn't officially start until Friday.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami said Monday, in an advisory released at about 2 p.m. EDT, that the storm was centered around 30 miles (50 kilometers) south-southwest of Panama City, Florida.

It's also worth pointing out that extremely heavy rain continues to fall over Cuba from a trailing moisture plume ... this is the fifth consecutive day.

Subtropical depression Alberto may not have turned into the season's first hurricane, but it brought strong wind and heavy rain to parts of the United States this week.

As Alberto's centre heads inland it is being deprived of the warm waters that fuel tropical weather systems, causing it to weaken, forecasters said.

The Florida panhandle, a good portion of Alabama and western Georgia are dramatically more at risk for flash flooding with this storm.

The journalists, namely Mike McCormick and Aaron Smeltzer, reportedly died when a falling tree crushed their vehicle as they drove down a highway in North Carolina.

Sunshine and daytime heating into the mid/upper 80s will trigger numerous showers and storms by the afternoon hours.

The center of what was once Alberto is moving over northwest Alabama. A tropical storm warning is in effect for a stretch of coastline between Aucilla River in Florida's Big Bend and the Alabama-Florida border.

Subtropical Storm Alberto is expected to remain well west of North Carolina, but the storm is helping to steer heavy rain to the Triangle on Memorial Day. Isolated, spin-up tornadoes will still be possible as through Tuesday as well.

The National Weather Service has issued a Flash Flood Warning for Tuscaloosa, Hale, Bibb and Chilton Counties until 11 a.m.

Mark Bowen, Bay County Emergency management director, said at a Sunday afternoon news conference that the concern isn't with storm surge due to the timing of landfall and the tides. One to four hurricanes could be "major" with sustained winds of at least 111 miles per hour (178 kph).(backslash)(backslash) If that forecast holds, it would make for a near-normal or above-normal season.

If that forecast holds, it would make for a near-normal or above-normal season. Alberto will become the ninth named storm to make landfall on the continental United States before June 1 on record.
