From the Florida Panhandle across eastern and central Alabama and into western Georgia, people can expect from 4 inches to 8 inches of rain, with isolated cases of 12 inches of rain, the NHC said.

It is forecast to drop as much as 30cm (12in) of rain across MS to western Georgia and to bring storm swells of about 60-120cm (2-4ft) to low-lying areas.

In its 7 a.m. advisory the National Hurricane Center said Alberto was at latitude 29.0 north, longitude 86.0 west, or south of the Panama City Beach area.

Subtropical Storm Alberto continued its slow approach to the Emerald Coast on Monday for a possible landfall in the afternoon or evening, weather forecasters said. The storm had maximum sustained winds of 65 miles per hour as it approached the northern Gulf of Mexico.

Subtropical depression Alberto has officially become the first named storm of the year to make landfall in the U.S.

A FLASH FLOOD WATCH has been issued for the region through Wednesday morning as additional showers and storms may produce tropical downpours and localized flash flooding.

The US National Hurricane Center (NHC) cancelled coastal warnings and watches for the storm, which spun up days before the formal start of the hurricane season on 1 June.

Subtropical storm Alberto fizzled into a subtropical depression as it rolled into Alabama on Tuesday but forecasters warned of potentially risky flash floods even as winds dropped to 30 miles per hour (48 km per hour). And in the Tampa Bay area on the central Gulf Coast, cities offered sandbags for homeowners anxious about floods. On the forecast track, the center of Alberto will move over Alabama later tonight and early Tuesday.

The storm's rip currents could sweep swimmers out to sea, putting their lives at risk.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration released a hurricane season forecast Thursday that calls for 10 to 16 named storms, with five to nine hurricanes.

Saturated soils and small streams will fill quickly adding to more localized flash flooding in those low lying areas. Alberto's remnants move away from us Wednesday, but we will still be in tropical air for the rest of the week; that means more locally-heavy thunderstorms through Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. And in the Tampa Bay area on the central Gulf Coast, cities offered sandbags for homeowners anxious about floods.

Many had been evacuated from their homes. The storm had maximum sustained winds of 65 miles per hour (100 kph) as it approached the northern Gulf of Mexico.
