Alberto forms in the Gulf, flooding rains forecast
26 May, 2018, 15:45
A subtropical storm has characteristics of both a tropical and non-tropical storm.
The National Hurricane Center predicts that Alberto could have sustained winds of 65 miles per hour - not far from hurricane-force - by Monday when it is approaching the coast near Mobile, Ala., and Biloxi, Miss.
For the 4th year in a row, a storm has been named ahead of the official start to "hurricane season".
Maximum sustained winds remain near 40 miles per hour with higher gusts, and a gradual strengthening is expected until the system reaches the northern Gulf Coast by Monday night, the Hurricane Center said. But make no mistake, the risk of flash flooding will continue beyond Saturday morning as the tropical system begins to have more of an impact on our weather late in the weekend. The biggest threat appears at time time to be heavy rain and possible flooding.
Subtropical Storm Alberto formed on Friday morning just east of Mexico's Yucatan peninsula, and it's expected to eventually strengthen as it spins north across the Gulf of Mexico this weekend.
RAINFALL: Alberto is expected to produce total rain accumulations of 10 to 15 inches with isolated totals of 25 inches across the northeastern portions of the Yucatan Peninsula and western Cuba.
UPDATE: Alberto is 2018's first named tropical system
Alberto is barely at tropical storm levels, but are forecast to increase. A subtropical storm means the center of circulation is exposed and the rain and thunderstorms are pushed away from the center. Note the heavy rain that will fall along and to the east of the tropical storm.
"Its mostly looking like a heavy rain event", National Weather Service meteorologist John McMichael said. For more information, consult products from your local weather office.
Currently, there is a 90%, or high, chance that this becomes either our first tropical depression or tropical storm of the 2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season.
