Alberto could cost Gulf Coast $1 billion”

Storm Alberto is expected to make landfall on the Florida Panhandle on Memorial Day Monday at around 1pm (7pm BST).

At 1 p.m. Monday, Sub Tropical Storm Alberto was making landfall around Panama City, Florida.

Forecasters have said Alberto could bring life-threatening high water to southern coastal states when it slams into the US. The Florida panhandle, a good portion of Alabama and western Georgia are dramatically more at risk for flash flooding with this storm.

The current projected path shows it will make landfall near Pensacola around 1 p.m. Monday as a subtropical storm, with winds of 65 miles per hour. People are cautioned not to swim or play in the Gulf because the storm will kick up unsafe rip currents.

Strong storms possible Thursday and Friday: As Alberto moves away, a different type of summertime weather pattern kicks in; that could deliver some intense summertime storms on Thursday and Friday.

Mandatory evacuations are being ordered for small barrier islands in one Florida county ahead of Subtropical Storm Alberto, and voluntary evacuations are issued for another county.

A tropical storm warning is in effect for Anclote River to the Mississipi-Alabama border, according to NWS.

"Heavy rains and gusty winds continue to spread northward over Florida", the National Hurricane Center tweeted.

Forecasters say heavy rains from Subtropical Storm Alberto could cause flooding across most of SC.

Isolated tornadoes were possible across the region on Sunday and Monday. With maximum sustained winds of 45 miles per hour, Alberto was moving north at 9 miles per hour.

Alberto is the first major storm of the 2018 hurricane season, which doesn't officially begin until June 1 and runs through the fall.

Here is the latest on Subtropical Storm Alberto as of the 4PM on Saturday. It is still a subtropical storm, meaning that it does not have all of the characteristics of a purely tropical system and is more of a hybrid cyclone.

Mark Bowen, the Bay County Emergency management director, said Alberto's biggest threat would be its heavy rains, with forecasts of anywhere from four to 12 inches (10 to 30 centimeters) of rain in some areas.

"The impact here will mainly be rain", Kula said. In fact, upper 80s will be widespread inland tomorrow with low 80s at the coast before sea breezes knock the numbers back into the 70s there.

The Hurricane Center says a tropical storm warning is in effect from the Suwannee River in Florida to the Mississippi-Alabama state line.
