Subtropical Storm Alberto was slowly making its way toward the Florida Panhandle Monday morning, coming within 50 miles of Panama City with winds of 60 mph and expected to make landfall Monday afternoon, according to the National Hurricane Center's 11 a.m. advisory.

Subtropical Storm Alberto was disrupting plans for Memorial Day barbecues and beach outings in Alabama, Florida and MS, as the storm continued churning north through the Gulf of Mexico on Sunday. The hurricane center said a tropical storm warning was in effect from the Suwannee River in Florida to the Alabama-Florida state line.

One to 2 inches of rain is expected through Tuesday, with some areas receiving up to 3 to 4 inches of rain. The possibility of heavy rain, storm surges and flash flooding, however, pose hazards for residents.

Alberto is expected to hold its current strength. but very little additional strengthening is likely before coming ashore across the United States east central Gulf coast.

Here in the Bay State, meteorologist Matt Doody with the National Weather Service in Boston said the remnants of Alberto will likely be seen as early as next week.

For the actual Memorial Day holiday, we expect only a few scattered showers and storms to develop during the midday and afternoon hours, especially near and east of I-81. States of emergency have been declared in Florida, Mississippi and Alabama.

Parts of the area are under mandatory evacuation orders.

Subtropical storm Alberto's course shifted slightly westward as it approached the Gulf Coast on Sunday.

"While Subtropical Storm Alberto is shifting eastward with a lessened impact on New Orleans, this is an important reminder that hurricane season begins June 1st", Cantrell said in a release.

The NWS said waves as high as 5.5 metres could pound the popular Gulf beaches in Baldwin County, Alabama, and northwestern Florida on Monday.
