Alberto forms, puts Florida under flood watch

Tropical Storm

Alberto, with maximum sustained winds of 40 miles per hour, is moving east at 2 miles per hour near the Yucatan Peninsula and is forecast to begin moving north Friday night.

A subtropical storm has characteristics of both a tropical and non-tropical storm.

The 1 p.m. update on Subtropical Storm Alberto from the National Hurricane Center says the story is still almost stationary. For the fourth consecutive time, Hurricane Season will start with a name already checked off before June 1st.

As of 2 p.m., Subtropical Storm Alberto — which formed Friday morning — was almost stationary about 60 miles south of Cozumel, Mexico, and had maximum sustained winds of 40 mph. If it stays to our east, we will still get very heavy rainfall, but it would be more spread out and generally lower totals overall. The rain is also expected to threaten building structures in low-lying areas.

The storm is expected to bring heavy rain to the Yucatan Peninsula, western Cuba, Florida and the northeastern Gulf Coast throughout the weekend.

The subtropical or tropical name is given to a storm with winds in excess of 39 miles per hour.

The highest rainfall amounts are expected along and near the I-75 corridor with some isolated areas receiving up to 6 inches.

A Tropical Storm Watch means that tropical storm conditions are possible in the United States portion of that watch area within 48 hours.

Subtropical Storm Alberto is now around 85 miles south/southeast of Cozumel, Mexico.

The immediate Tampa Bay area could experience tropical storm-force winds by Saturday morning, forecasters said, and conditions along the coast could become risky with high winds and rip currents. Much of the convection (thunderstorms) is east of the center of the storm (see Fig. 2).

That system on Sunday and Monday likely will continue moving north and dumping heavy rains along the Gulf Coast.

The National Weather Service has issued flash flood advisories across the region. Wet weather will be most likely in the late afternoon and evening. Beach threat is rip currents and coastal flooding from higher water levels.
