Forecast: Alberto leaves clouds, rain in its wake for Tampa Bay

As Subtropical Storm Alberto barrels towards the Florida coast, Atlanta can expect to see heavy showers and the possibility for severe weather later Monday afternoon.

The persistent rain associated with Alberto's tail is just offshore of South Florida Monday and south of the Florida Keys.

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.

The storm continued churning north through the Gulf of Mexico on Sunday and is scheduled to make landfall on the Florida Panhandle early Monday morning, reports CNN.

The National Hurricane Center has also warned of the possibility of tornadoes "from northern Florida into central and southern Georgia, southern SC, and southeastern Alabama". If a strong thunderstorm forms, we can't rule out wind gusts around 30 to 40 miles per hour.

All 67 Florida counties were issued the emergency notice to give state and local governments enough time and resources to prepare, Florida Governor Rick Scott said in a statement. Rough conditions were expected to roil the seas off the eastern and northern Gulf Coast region through Tuesday.

After that, it will bring powerful winds and heavy rains as it moves into the Tennessee Valley on Tuesday and Wednesday, the hurricane center said. On the current path it will make landfall as a subtropical torm. somewhere across the western Florida Panhandle.

In Taylor County, there were voluntary evacuations for those in coastal zones and beach communities, mobile homes, RV parks and low-lying areas.

Despite Alberto's distance from us, its vast circulation will continue to stream in gusty southerly winds through Memorial Day Monday, along with occasional showers and thunderstorms.

Heavy downpours are expected to begin lashing parts of those states on Sunday. As the center of Alberto pulls north and slightly west, the tail is forecast to swing toward South Florida.

The storm spun up days before the formal June 1 start of the hurricane season. The storm had top sustained winds of 40 miles per hour (65 kph).

Moore said the rainy weather late this month is expected to push the Columbia area past its average precipitation for May, typically one of the state's driest months.

The US-based National Hurricane Centre is warning that Alberto could produce up to 600 millimetres of rain in western Cuba. The tropical system became a subtropical storm Friday, the hurricane center said.
