Subtropical Depression Alberto bringing plenty of rain to the Carolinas

Alberto will continue to lift north today bringing locally heavy rain and a low threat for tornadoes to east central Florida

The storm will bring powerful winds and heavy rains as it moves into the Tennessee Valley on Tuesday and Wednesday, the hurricane center said. The system is then expected to spread rains over the Tennessee Valley on Tuesday and push later in the week into the Ohio Valley and Great Lakes region. And through the end of the work week, that daytime heating is what we'll go back to relying on to get our afternoon sea breeze storms flaring up.

Subtropical Storm Alberto is expected to remain well west of North Carolina, but the storm is helping to steer heavy rain to the Triangle on Memorial Day. "There's not going to be a lot of grilling or boating going on - it's going to be messy".

"North Carolina needs to take Alberto seriously".

The center of Subtropical Storm Alberto will likely reach the northern U.S. Gulf Coast Monday afternoon or evening.

Temperatures are expected to be in the low to mid 80s during the day and the mid 70s at night this week and the wind should be less than 15 miles per hour but as low as 7 miles per hour on Wednesday.

According to Gardner, the rain will come in bands Monday, picking up in intensity with some heavy downpours before slowing down.

Otherwise, temperatures are very warm and quite muggy outside with most starting out in the mid 70s. On the backside of it, we still could see a scattered shower or T'storm, but there should be less coverage as Wednesday and Wednesday night.

A few isolated storms may pop on Friday as we close out the work week.

Janet Rhumes said her group of friends from Kansas had been planning their Memorial Day weekend on Navarre Beach since October. Lifeguards posted red flags along the white sands of Pensacola Beach, where swimming and wading were banned as Alberto disrupted long holiday weekend plans for millions.

Alberto formed several days ahead of the June 1 official start of the six-month Atlantic hurricane season. Rough conditions were expected to roil the seas off the eastern and northern Gulf Coast region through Tuesday.

In addition to parts of the southeastern USA, the heavy rains and storm conditions could produce "life-threatening flash floods and mudslides" in Cuba, the NHC said.

The governors of Alabama, Florida and MS have all declared states of emergency. Breezy conditions are also expected.

The National Weather Service's Miami office extended its flood watch in South Florida to 6 p.m. Monday as a result of the storm.

On Thursday, another half-inch to a full inch of rain will be possible.

As a subtropical storm, Alberto had a less defined and cooler center than a tropical storm, and its strongest winds were found farther from its center.

Wednesdays outlook will be similar to Tuesday, but the tropical moisture may begin to dry.
