Subtropical Storm Alberto to bring rain for the holiday

Share

Rain chances are at 70 percent to 80 percent for portions of Florida throughout the Memorial Day weekend.

The National Hurricane Center has named the first storm of the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season, precisely one week before the season is expected to begin on June 1.

The National Hurricane Center is monitoring a new tropical system that will bring heavy rain to Florida and the Gulf Coast states by Memorial Day.

The National Hurricane Center defines the term subtropical storm as a "subtropical cyclone" in which the maximum sustained wind speed - using the US one-minute average - is 39 miles per hour or higher. Subtropical storms can develop into tropical storms, which in turn can strengthen into hurricanes.

Regardless of the exact track and intensity, Alberto will be a maker of heavy rain and possibly flash flooding over south Florida and the Keys.

Update 11 a.m.: The first forecast models are in from the NHC, and they show Alberto avoiding South Florida. Tropical storm watches are also in effect for parts of Mexico and Cuba. "In the tropical storm, waters are very warm".

Several inches of rain will be possible across Central Georgia Sunday into Monday as outer rain bands move into the area.
