"It doesn't have a real warm core, it's not taking energy from the warm waters, but it does mean that this system is producing winds of tropical storm force, but it's very near the centre".

Forecasters at the National Weather Service warn that storms will be in effect from 8 a.m. Saturday through 8 p.m. Sunday.

No matter where the storm shifts, Central Florida will see a wet weekend, said Jessie Smith, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service's Melbourne office.

Over the next 24 hours, what was once known as Invest 90L will move north into the Gulf of Mexico.

So, what in the world is a "Subtropical Storm?"

Alberto lost its tropical storm title soon thereafter but later became a powerful extratropical storm south of Nova Scotia, the hurricane center said.

This should also have become increasingly clear to the White House. "Now, we were sympathetic to say, 'Well, talk, talk, talk". The Blue House said Thursday that it was trying to figure out Trump's intentions in canceling the summit.

The system is now off the southeastern Yucatan Peninsula but it's expected to move northward.

Alberto is early; hurricane season doesn't start officially until June 1.

Abundant tropical moisture streaming north into the region on the eastern side of newly formed subtropical storm Alberto over the northwest Caribbean will increase the potential for heavy rain across all of Florida on Saturday and continuing through Monday evening.

Subtropical Storm Alberto is moving slowly, but is expected to take a northerly track overnight and be just off the west coast of Florida by early Sunday morning, according to the National Hurricane Center.

The start time for the rain and storms associated with Alberto remains fluid. Rainfall could reach up to 6 inches in parts of Florida up to the Carolinas, Weather.com reported. Accuweather hurricane expert Dan Kottlowski took that a step further Friday afternoon, saying, "We can not rule out the possibility of this system becoming a hurricane before it makes landfall sometime on Monday or Monday night".

The Memorial Day weekend in Texas, however, should be mostly hot and dry. It's heading is north into the Gulf where it's impacts will range from strong rip currents and active seas to heavy rain and flash flooding inland.
