Subtropical Storm Alberto moves toward Gulf of Mexico

26 May, 2018, 18:13 | Author: Dwayne Harmon
  • Alberto is likely to make landfall Monday between New Orleans and Destin Florida before moving into Mississippi and Alabama by Tuesday

There remains a lot of uncertainty on the track and intensity of the storm as it lifts to the north. Impacts will extend far from the storm's disorganized center, having an impact on the northern Gulf coast and parts of Florida.

As of 5 p.m. Friday, Alberto had sustained winds of 40 miles per hour and was drifting east at 2 miles per hour. The odds have increased since the storm began brewing. Clusters of thunderstorms with heavy rain are now aiming at the western two-thirds of Cuba, and making for a wet South Florida.

Forecasters say there is a 90 percent chance of a subtropical or tropical depression forming by Saturday.

The system developed Friday morning near the northwestern Caribbean Sea.

There is a high risk of rip currents in place this weekend as well as high surf and coastal flooding advisories. This could be just a tropical storm, or it could gain minimal hurricane strength.

Alberto is anticipated to be a large system.

As much as 7 inches of rain is possible in south Florida, where some areas had more than 14 inches of rain last weekend.

A National Hurricane Center map shows Alberto approaching the Gulf Coast on Monday, somewhere between Louisiana and the Florida Panhandle. The area has already received a significant amount of rainfall this month - including tremendous downpours Thursday evening.

About four to six inches are expected for the greater Fort Lauderdale and Miami areas, with three to four inches expected for Palm Beach County.

The Government of Cuba has issued a Tropical Storm Watch for the western Cuban province of Pinar del Rio.

Winds will also crank up over the 3 day weekend, but tropical-storm force winds will stay well to our west.

The system will also create hazardous conditions along the coast.

Florida is expected to start feeling Alberto's effects Saturday.

Since 1995, the Atlantic and Caribbean have seen "very active" seasons, said Bell, as a decades-long climate trend in the Atlantic Ocean has kept water temperatures warmer, contributing to a higher number of storms.
