Subtropical Storm Alberto could be a rainmaker, but not for Texas

Tropical Storm

Alberto was moving east at 5 miles per hour with 40 miles per hour sustained winds. A storm of this type is not unusual for this time period and region. At that point it might become stronger, although no strengthening is expected on Monday. Note the heavy rain that will fall along and to the east of the tropical storm.

Below are the impacts that we expect in Southwest Florida this weekend. Tropical storm watches are also in effect for parts of Mexico and Cuba.

Check this page for all watches and warnings issued for our area by the National Weather Services and NOAA. Forecasters expected Alberto to intensify to a tropical storm Saturday morning, but do not anticipate it to become a hurricane. However it weakened before making landfall and had winds around 45 miles per hour at that time. The barometric pressure was still 1005mb. There's a small possibility of Alberto crossing into hurricane status but that doesn't mean it would stay there.

TAMPA— The first tropical system of the 2018 hurricane season has formed in the Caribbean and threatens to drench the Tampa Bay area with heavy rains and potential flooding over the Memorial Day weekend.

The western Caribbean Sea and eastern Gulf of Mexico are often the areas where any early tropical activity fires up, so Alberto isn't unusual in that regard. Gustav 2002 was the first subtropical storm to be named.

WIND: Tropical storm conditions are possible within the watch area through Saturday.

Harvey battered the Gulf Coast from Louisiana to Central America.

A subtropical cyclone has characteristics of both tropical and extratropical cyclones, and tends to have a broader maximum wind radius than the cone of most tropical cyclones.

The official start of hurricane season isn't until June 1. Now it seems that is likely within the next five days as it tracks north over the Yucatán Peninsula into the Gulf of Mexico.

Highs Sunday are expected to range from the low to mid 70s across the north to the low to mid 80s here in the Lehigh Valley and across southeastern Pa., southern New Jersey and the Delmarva peninsula. A reconnaissance flight is scheduled to fly in and investigate this low-pressure Friday afternoon. A storm surge watch was issued for the coast from from Horseshoe Beach in Florida's Big Bend west to the mouth of the Mississippi River. Walton County is not now under a flood watch, according to the National Weather Service in Tallahassee, but that could change. The storm will move into slightly above average waters, where there will be room for it to strengthen slightly before making landfall. Florida has already had heavy rain this month.

The Memorial Day weekend in Texas, however, should be mostly hot and dry.
