Tropical Storm Warnings are up along Gulf Coast ahead of Alberto

If you are heading to the Florida beaches or along the Gulf Coast starting in MS, you will still be under the Tropical Storm Watch and a Storm Surge Watch into Tuesday because Alberto is tracking closer to the Florida Panhandle.

On the forecast track, the center of Alberto is expected to move near the western tip of Cuba today, track across the eastern Gulf of Mexico on Saturday night through Monday, and approach the northern Gulf Coast in the watch area Monday night.

The next group of storm names on the 2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season list includes Beryl, Chris, Debby, Ernesto, Florence, Gordon, Helene and Isaac.

"Locally heavy rainfall is forecast across western Cuba and over much of Florida and the northern Gulf coast into early next week", senior hurricane specialist Stacy Stewart said in Friday's tropical weather outlook.

Up to a foot of rain will be possible for areas near the coast in Alabama and northwest Florida, where many are vacationing for the Memorial Day weekend. A sub-tropical storm means the center of circulation is exposed and the rain and thunderstorms are pushed away from the center. The 40 mph winds extend outward up to 140 miles to the east of the center of the storm, the Hurricane Center said.

Memorial Day marks the unofficial start of summer, and this year, it looks like it might also bring an early start to the 2018 hurricane season. Along with heavy rains and high winds come rough seas and a threat of rip currents from Florida to Louisiana.

It is not organized enough yet to be a tropical storm, and is considered subtropical.

Under overcast skies and occasional drizzle, several Gulfport, Mississippi, residents lined up to fill 10- and 20-pound (5- and 9-kilogram) bags with sand they will use to block any encroaching floodwater expected as a result of Alberto.

The county is also under a flood watch for flooding in general low-lying areas due to heavy rainfall.

The Pinar del Rio province of Cuba remains under a tropical storm warning.

Albert could become a full-fledged tropical storm rather than a hybrid, with top winds of 65 miles (105 kilometers) per hour as it pushes deeper into the Gulf Sunday into Monday, Daniel Brown, a hurricane center meteorologist wrote in a forecast analysis.
