Sunda Evening Update on Subtropical Storm Alberto

Subtropical Storm Alberto continues to churn north through the Gulf of Mexico

The story changes for Monday, however, when North Carolina will begin to feel the tropical moisture pushed up from the Gulf of Mexico by Subtropical Storm Alberto.

"Heavy rains and gusty winds continue to spread northward over Florida", it tweeted. In between the rain, mostly to partly cloudy skies will prevail with muggy conditions.

The first named Atlantic storm of 2018 is expected to intensify and bring wind speeds of 100+ km/h to the Gulf Coast when it approaches over the holiday on Monday, he said.

Wes Maul, the state's emergency management director, said timing of the storm is uncertain, but the entire state will feel the effects. Only.13 inches had fallen at the Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport through 5 p.m. Saturday, but almost 6 inches has fallen so far this month, about three times the normal amount.

Winds of 40 mph extend outward up to 115 miles from the center.

"The main concern from Alberto is flooding; not so much along the immediate coast, but inland, from the heavy rains that are coming on top of over a week of rain across the southeast", said Chuck Watson, a disaster modeler at Enki Research in Savannah, Georgia.

At the moment its growth is being hindered by strong winds in the upper atmosphere, but as the storm tracks northwards these winds are expected to ease, allowing the storm to complete its transition into a fully tropical system.

The rain could be heavy at times through Tuesday, with 2-4 inches possible, and there is the potential for flash flooding. River flooding will be possible this week as a result.

Cuba maintained its tropical storm watch for the province of Pinar del Rio, while Mexico cancelled its watch for the resort-dotted coast of the Yucatan peninsula, where the storm brought heavy rain.

Alberto remains miles west of Jacksonville but it dumped about a 1/2 inch to 1 1/2 inches of rain on the region Sunday, said Andrew Kennedy, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Jacksonville.

The National Hurricane Center dropped the lingering Tropical Storm Warning for the northern half of Longboat Key and Tampa Bay in its 5 p.m. bulletin.

All 67 Florida counties were issued the emergency notice to give state and local governments enough time and resources to prepare, Florida Governor Rick Scott said in a statement.

The storm disrupted plans from Pensacola in the Panhandle to Miami Beach on Florida's southeastern edge.

Despite its predicted strengthening, Alberto is not expected to become a hurricane.
