Subtropical Storm Alberto is expected to bring drenching rains to the Florida Panhandle when it makes landfall on Monday, the day after a separate storm triggered a flood that tore through a historic Maryland town and swept away a man who was trying to help rescue people, officials said.

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. A storm surge watch has been posted from the river to Mexico Beach, Florida.

Strong onshore winds may bring higher than normal water levels along the coast which could create coastal flooding.

In addition to parts of the southeastern US, the heavy rains and storm conditions could produce "life-threatening flash floods and mudslides" in Cuba, the NHC said.

Up to 1 inch of rainfall is possible area wide, with some locally higher amounts possible. As the center of Alberto pulls north and slightly west, the tail is forecast to swing toward South Florida.

"On the forecast track, the center of Alberto will move over the northern Gulf of Mexico tonight and cross the northern Gulf Coast in the warning area on Monday", the center said. Forecasters said the subtropical depression swirling near Birmingham, Ala., could dump as much as 6 inches of rain to the middle of Alabama.

Alberto has made landfall between Laguna Beach and Panama City Beach, FL. Wind speeds are now at 45 miles per hour. "That includes tropical-storm-force winds of 39-55 miles per hour, a storm surge potential, heavy rain and the potential for isolated tornadoes".

Our weather today will have periods of rain, some will be heavy at times.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration released a hurricane season forecast Thursday that calls for 10 to 16 named storms, with five to nine hurricanes.

Shell plans to restore production at its Ram Powell Hub in the Viosca Knoll area of the Gulf as it soon as the platform can be operated safely, the company said in a statement. The storm spun up days before the formal June 1 start of the hurricane season. Grant Brown, the city's public information officer, said they had already finished a number of preparations such as clearing culverts to prepare for big rains but Sunday had turned into a "really nice day".
