Storm Alberto churns toward Florida, Alabama and Mississippi

Storm Alberto churns toward Florida, Alabama and Mississippi

Fortunately for our friends in the Florida Panhandle, dry air has wrapped into the center of Alberto, which will likely make it hard for the storm to get too much stronger before the center comes ashore between Pensacola and Panama City Monday afternoon.

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. He said Alberto was likely to slow down as it meets land in Florida and Alabama, but heavy tropical showers are expected all across Florida.

Waters off the eastern and northern Gulf Coast are expected to be rough through Tuesday. "On the forecast track, the center of Alberto will move over the northern Gulf of Mexico tonight and cross the northern Gulf Coast in the warning area on Monday".

Pasco County is now under a Tropical Storm Warning.

Subtropical Storm Alberto was disrupting plans for Memorial Day barbecues and beach outings in Alabama, Florida and MS, as the storm continued churning north through the Gulf of Mexico on Sunday.

Alberto is the first major storm of the 2018 hurricane season, which doesn't officially begin until June 1 and runs through the fall.

Mandatory evacuations were issued for Franklin County's barrier islands and anybody living on the coastline in mobile homes and recreational vehicle parks.

"This system will bring excessive rainfall to the watch area beginning Saturday evening and continuing through Tuesday evening".

Tropical storm force winds will meet land by about 8 p.m. Sunday and the storm itself is likely to make landfall Monday morning. Grant Brown, the city's public information officer, said they had already finished a number of preparations such as clearing culverts to prepare for big rains but Sunday had turned into a "really nice day".

With conditions expected to worsen overnight, officials are encouraging people planning to check out Monday to give themselves extra time.

As of the 5 PM advisory from the National Hurricane Center, the center of Alberto is roughly 120 miles south of Apalachicola.

"It's not going to rain all day", Osterberg said.

Subtropical Storm Alberto is a little better organized this morning and winds are at 45 miles per hour. The deepest water will occur along the immediate coast, the NHC said.

The projected path keeps the center of the storm west of NCFL.

The storm is expected to produce total rain accumulations of 10 to 15 inches with isolated totals of 25 inches across the western Cuba.

"The Memorial Day holiday won't be too awful".
