Remnants of Subtropical Storm Alberto could reach Upstate NY this week

Remnants of Subtropical Storm Alberto could reach Upstate NY this week

The storm, coming on the last day of the Memorial Day weekend, was expected to scramble holiday travel. The center said in its 5 p.m. advisory that Alberto's core made landfall Monday at Laguna Beach, about 15 miles west-northwest of Panama City. Later, it cancelled storm surge warnings for most of the Florida peninsula, saying the Panhandle remained the focus of concern. The storm's remnants could reach Upstate by Wednesday night or Thursday, according to local National Weather Service offices. The drier air is weakening some of the storms bubbling up near the center of Alberto.

Authorities in Florida's Franklin and Taylor counties issued mandatory evacuation orders for thousands of coastal residents.

As tropical storm Alberto plows through the Gulf of Mexico, it appears to have set a course north through Alabama and Tennessee. Rain moving north off the Atlantic Ocean was expected to arrive in the Triangle about 11 a.m. on Memorial Day and continue on and off through the evening and overnight hours.

The first named storm of the 2018 hurricane season that starts Friday prompted Florida, Alabama and MS to launch emergency preparations Saturday.

The season's first named subtropical storm, Alberto, is nearing landfall by Pensacola, Florida, as it brings heavy rain from Florida to Georgia to the Carolinas. Alberto will bring widespread heavy rain in the Panhandle of Florida and Alabama later today and tonight.

"Rains in Cuba could produce life-threatening flash floods and mudslides. Flooding and flash flooding are possible in the southeast United States, including Florida".




Alberto formed several days ahead of the official start of the six-month Atlantic hurricane season on June 1.

In Gulf Shores, Ala., webcams showed beaches beginning to fill up as the storm's track shifted slightly east away from the region, but red flags on the beach warned beach-goers to stay out of the rough water.

Alabama and MS have activated their National Guards in preparation for Subtropical Storm Alberto, which is expected to make Landfall in Florida on Monday. Subtropical storms can develop into tropical storms, which in turn can strengthen into hurricanes.That tropical moisture will make its way into North Carolina Monday and Tuesday.

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.

Florida, Alabama and MS declare states of emergency; Jonathan Serrie reports from Florida. Parts of Florida, Georgia and Alabama could get from 4 to 8 inches (10 to 20 centimeters) with some areas receiving as much as a foot of rain.

Once Alberto is inland, and deprived of the warm waters that fuel tropical weather systems, the storm was expected to steadily weaken.
