Alberto, first Atlantic storm of 2018, will head for the U.S

Subtropical Storm Alberto formed on Friday morning just east of Mexico's Yucatan peninsula, and it's expected to strengthen as it spins north across the Gulf of Mexico this weekend.

A subtropical storm has a less defined and cooler center than a tropical storm, and its strongest winds are found farther from its center. However it is not expected to become a hurricane. This low is expected to move northward affecting only the central and eastern Gulf coast.

Forecasters expect a subtropical or tropical depression to form by late Saturday over the southeastern Gulf of Mexico.
