However, there is a low chance for spotty showers across our western and northern zones.

AccuWeather said Alberto is becoming more organized as it hovers in the eastern Gulf of Mexico and is gaining strength.

Thanks tom the rain and clouds around, high temperatures Monday will be in the upper 70s in many locations.

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. But the broad storm system is expected to bring heavy rains across the entire northern Gulf Coast starting well before landfall.

Florida and MS are under states of emergency ahead Subtropical Storm Alberto hitting the Golf Coast.

The downpours could dampen Memorial Day, the unofficial start of the summer tourist season along Gulf beaches. Flooding and flash flooding are possible in the southeast United States, including Florida, the agency said.

Flood and flash-flood watches are spread across Mississippi, Alabama and Florida, where 4 to 7 inches (10 to 18 centimeters) of rain could fall through early next week and reach into South Carolina, North Carolina and Tennessee expected to be hit by Alberto's remnants, the National Weather Service said.

On Sunday, some USA states were recording winds of 50 miles per hour and up to 10 inches of rain, according to National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's National Hurricane Center director Ken Graham.

A subtropical storm like Alberto has a less defined and cooler centre than a tropical storm, and its strongest winds are found farther from its centre. "Steady weakening is expected after landfall, and Alberto is forecast to become a tropical depression by Monday night or Tuesday", the Hurricane Center said.

The Mississippi Coast shouldn't see much rain from the system until Monday.

One of the four storms could turn into major hurricanes.

Alberto's projected storm track has shifted eastward since Friday, lessening its threat to the active oil production areas in the Gulf of Mexico.

Alberto comes during the Memorial Day weekend, and is expected to affect travel on Monday, when many people will return from their holidays. New rainfall amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch, except higher amounts possible in thunderstorms.

While the bulk of the rain is expected later in the evening, isolated showers and thunderstorms are possible after 11 a.m. Sunday for the Myrtle Beach area, a NWS forecast says.
