Subtropical depression Alberto: Latest updates

UPDATED: Governor issues state of emergency for subtropical Storm Alberto

According to the National Hurricane Center, Alberto is expected to become a subtropical depression Monday night or early Tuesday.

Several states, including Florida, Alabama, and MS went into pre-emptive states of emergency on Sunday, and a Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for the northern Gulf Coast from the Suwannee River to the Alabama-Florida border.

At 7:30 p.m. EDT Sunday, Alberto was centered about 195 miles (315 kilometers) west of Tampa and had maximum sustained winds of 65 mph (100 kph) - up from 50 mph (85 kph) earlier.

If the forecast is correct, the first part of Memorial Day in South Florida will be cloudy but relatively dry, with rain chances increasing Monday afternoon and especially Monday evening - with heavy rain at times.

Combined with the above average rainfall we've already seen so far this spring, additional rain could create flooding issues in the upcoming week along area rivers.

Alberto is expected to bring widespread showers and thunderstorms to the Midstate on Tuesday.

"We're not expecting the season to be one of the most active on record", said Gerry Bell, lead hurricane season forecaster with NOAA's Climate Prediction Center. "That includes tropical-storm-force winds of 39-55 miles per hour, a storm surge potential, heavy rain and the potential for isolated tornadoes". 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.

Thousands of Florida residents evacuated homes on Sunday (May 27) as Sub-tropical Storm Alberto picked up strength as it headed north through the Gulf of Mexico, with forecasters saying it could bring life-threatening inundation to southern coastal states.

Because of the predicted landfall area, Lee County and surrounding areas could potentially experience "tropical weak tornadoes", Allen said, because of the county's location in relation to the storm.

Alberto, the first named Atlantic storm of 2018, spun up days before the formal June 1 start of the hurricane season.

Unsettled weather will be moving in this evening with shower and thunderstorm chances increasing into late evening and overnight around Mid-Michigan.

Weakening is forecast over the next 48 hours.

In Cuba, flooding damaged an oil refinery and caused crude oil to spill into Cienfuegos Bay as the remnants of Alberto continued to drench the island in heavy rain. Locally heavy rain can be expected throughout Memorial Day.
