Sunda Evening Update on Subtropical Storm Alberto

Flash flood watch issued for Myrtle Beach. Here's when the rain is coming

As of 5 a.m., the storm was about 125 miles south of Destin, Florida, and moving northwest at about 7 mph.

The center of Alberto is expected to cross into the warning area later Monday afternoon or evening before crossing into the Tennessee Valley on Tuesday and Wednesday. The storm has maximum sustained winds of 50 miles per hour and the NHC says it is moving north-northwest at 12 miles per hour.

The Alabama and Florida Gulf Coast are under a tropical storm warning as Alberto approaches the northern part of the Gulf of Mexico.

These locations could receive an additional 2-4 inches of rain. In that forecast, Alberto's center has moved ashore into the Southeast U.S., and the tail has swung back over land - meaning persistent rain, heavy at times with gusty winds in South Florida.

Alberto, the first named Atlantic storm of 2018, which spun up days before the formal June 1 start of the hurricane season, was packing maximum sustained winds near 105 kilometres per hour and was expected to drop as much as 30cm of rain, slamming an area from MS to western Georgia, the Miami-based hurricane centre said.

Forecasters anxious that as Subtropical Storm Alberto spun north through the Gulf of Mexico this weekend, it would fling moisture from the south toward Tampa Bay, assaulting the area with an endless barrage of rain that could lead to risky river flooding.
