Alberto Heading for the Florida Panhandle, with Alan Sealls

Subtropical Storm Alberto heads to the US Gulf Alberto Latest

A subtropical storm like Alberto has a less defined and cooler center than a tropical storm, and its strongest winds are found farther from its center.

A tropical storm warning has been issued for the Mississippi/Alabama border to the Aucilla River in Florida. The season is likely to be "near or above normal", according to the hurricane center.

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey issued a state of emergency for 40 counties, starting at 6 a.m. Sunday.

"The combination of storm surge and the tide will cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded", the National Hurricane Center in Miami said. Expect rounds of heavy rain through Tuesday with widespread rain totals of 2 to 3 inches expected with locally higher amounts possible.

Florida, Alabama and MS declared states of emergency on Saturday as the storm threatened up to 12 inches of rain over the Memorial Day weekend, as well as tidal surges and damaging winds, according to Patrick Burke of the weather service's Weather Prediction Center in College Park, Maryland. The tropical system became a subtropical storm Friday, the hurricane center said. Sustained winds will be in the 10-20 miles per hour range. As it travels up the warm waters of the Gulf, it could well become a full tropical storm.

Winds from the storm are forecast to hit Florida's Panhandle on Sunday night.

The NWS said waves as high as 18 feet could pound the popular Gulf beaches in Baldwin County, Alabama, and northwestern Florida on Monday, bringing with it deadly rip currents.

"Heavy rains and gusty winds continue to spread northward over Florida", it tweeted.

Regardless of its path and intensity, Alberto expected to bring heavy rains of more than 10 inches and flash flooding to western Cuba and southern Florida, the National Hurricane Center said.

A tropical storm watch is in effect for parts of MS and Alabama, meaning the conditions for a full storm are possible in the next 48 hours.
