Subtropical Storm Alberto heads to the US Gulf

Subtropical Storm Alberto heads to the US Gulf A stronger Alberto to make landfall along Florida panhandle Monday

A tropical storm watch is now in place from the New Orleans area to the Aucilla River in the Florida panhandle. A tropical storm warning has been issued for the Dry Tortugas.

The new forecast track centers landfall in the Florida panhandle.

"As we continue to monitor Subtropical Storm Alberto's northward path toward Florida, it is critically important that all Florida counties have every available resource to keep families safe and prepare for the torrential rain and severe flooding this storm will bring", Scott said in a written statement.

The expected impact on the Mississippi Coast has lessened, and the storm surge watch has been canceled for the three coastal counties. Expect rounds of heavy rain through Tuesday with widespread rain totals of 2 to 3 inches expected with locally higher amounts possible.

Subtropical Storm Alberto heads to the US Gulf

The governors of Florida, Alabama and MS all declared states of emergency ahead of the storm.

"Whether you're a resident of this state or just visiting, you need to stay updated on this evolving tropical system", Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant said in a statement. As it travels up the warm waters of the Gulf, it could well become a full tropical storm.

Rain bands are rotating into South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, and Florida this afternoon with tropical storm force wind gusts being experienced across parts of Florida as Alberto moves to the northwest at 10 miles per hour. By Saturday morning, the storm was gathering strength as it moved north.

There is a 60 percent chance of rain Monday and 50 percent that night, and tropical storm conditions are possible. In Cancun, local newspapers showed scenes of some streets flooded to mid-hubcap level. Along with heavy rains and high winds come rough seas and a threat of rip currents from Florida to Louisiana that can sweep swimmers out to sea. There are still bands of rain- feeder bands that will create a flood threat in the Panhandle, and a tornado threat in central Florida.
