Subtropical Storm Alberto brings rain, wind gusts to Northeast Florida

Scattered showers and storms are expected daily, with a lower chance for rain by the weekend.

After that, it will bring powerful winds and heavy rains as it moves into the Tennessee Valley on Tuesday and Wednesday, the hurricane centre said. It had winds of up to 60 miles per hour and was expected to increase to tropical storm conditions as it gets closer to shore. That created mild wind shear, which is normally bad for storm development.

If you're traveling on Sunday or Memorial Day, the worst weather will be in areas west and northwest of Central Florida, including much of the Panhandle and the west coast of the state.

The state will see a shift to a more northwesterly wind flow with another front approaching from the west, so we could still see numerous rounds of showers at least through Friday. As the center of the storm approaches land, a dome of high pressure over the upper Midwest will slow it down. This is more rain than Havana expects in the first six months of the year, and is likely to produce life-threatening flash floods and mudslides. That was because the wind field east of the storms center was so wide, Austin said.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami issued tropical storm warnings for parts of Florida and Alabama, saying tropical storm conditions are possible there by Sunday night. Unfortunately for Apalachicola, the maximum storm surge should arrive at this morning's high tide, resulting in a total water level roughly 3.4 feet above the normal high tide.

He said the first ship will set sail on Tuesday morning, with a number of injured Gazans and patients aboard. Islamic Jihad operates with a measure of independence from Hamas.

By midday Sunday, the US Southeast was seeing 50-mile-per-hour (80-km-per-hour) winds and up to 10 inches of rain in some places, Ken Graham, director of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's National Hurricane Center, said in a video briefing.

An official from the National Weather Service warns that even after Subtropical Storm Alberto passes, there's still a risk for rip currents.

The NWS said waves as high as 5.5 metres could pound the popular Gulf beaches in Baldwin County, Alabama, and northwestern Florida on Monday. New rainfall amounts between a half and three quarters of an inch possible. The weather service cautioned, though, that the storm is several days away and there remains a great deal of uncertainty about how it will affect the Northeast.

Alberto has been a subtropical storm since its formation because it lacked the warm core that forms the core of tropical storms.

And just as the long holiday weekend marked summer's unofficial start in the U.S., Alberto gave it the unofficial start of what forecasters recently predicted would be an active hurricane season.
