Florida and MS launch emergency preparations ahead of Subtropical Storm Alberto

Florida and MS launch emergency preparations ahead of Subtropical Storm Alberto

The storm will be near the western tip of Cuba Saturday morning and emerge over the southeastern Gulf of Mexico by Saturday night.

Major storms last year including Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria caused major damage in Florida, Texas, and Louisiana last year.

A hotel owner in Panama City Beach, Florida, tells the Panama City News Herald that her familys five hotels are normally full on Memorial Day weekend.

Subtropical Storm Alberto remains disorganized near the Yucatan Peninsula Friday evening, but is still on track to intensify and impact the northern Gulf coast and parts of Florida.

The New Orleans area should be prepared for heavy rain over the weekend and through the middle of next week as Subtropical Storm Alberto meanders northward through the Gulf of Mexico before making landfall somewhere along the coast. By Monday night, it might be a little bit drier, with the chance of rain dropping to 60 percent, according to the National Weather Service in Miami.

His Mississippi and Alabama counterparts also declared states of emergency, citing the threat of coastal and inland flooding from storm rains.

At 4:00 p.m. Saturday, Alberto was moving north at 13 miles per hour. Essentially, the characteristics of a subtropical system mean it lacks the punch to quickly increase in strength and become a hurricane.

Liverpool, Real Madrid set to clash in Champions League title game
Within three minutes of replacing Isco, Bale made the flawless entrance by scoring one of the finest goals in a European final. Liverpool , on the other hand, are vying for a first Champions League win since that storied night in Istanbul 13 years ago.

The National Weather service here in Melbourne has issued a Flood Watch for Brevard County through 8:00 p.m. Monday.

Alberto is the first named storm in the Atlantic in 2018.

2-4 feet of storm surge is also possible as Alberto nears landfall along the northern Gulf coast, including the Florida Panhandle.

Rainfall and wind extend far away from the center of the storm, one of the classic hallmarks of a subtropical storm.

Rainfall totals will be highest in Florida and eastern Louisiana.

The storm has the potential to drop 10-15 inches of rain on western Cuba and 3-7 inches across the Florida Keys. But further strengthening, which some models predict, could mean winds as high as 60 or 70 miles per hour.

Heading back to work Tuesday and for much of next week temperatures will gradually be on the rise climbing into the mid 90s under mostly sunny skies with just a stray shower possible each afternoon. For the fourth consecutive time, Hurricane Season will start with a name already checked off before June 1st.
