Subtropical Storm Alberto could be a rainmaker, but not for Texas

Subtropical Storm Alberto could be a rainmaker, but not for Texas

Heavy rain and some flooding will be possible for the west coast and South Florida as early as the start of the weekend, with the Central Gulf coast looking at impacts closer to the second half of the long holiday weekend.

Subtropical Storm Alberto was "meandering over the northwestern Caribbean Sea" Friday afternoon, causing risky surf and rip current conditions on the Yucatan and the west coast of Cuba, according to the the center's website.

The National Hurricane Center may have an Air Force reconnaissance aircraft investigate the system on Friday. A subtropical storm is one that has not acquired full tropical characteristics at this time. The rain is expected to intensify into Sunday and continue into Memorial Day.

On Thursday, there were severe storms that blasted from the Midwest to the East Coast.

If the system develops, it would be named Alberto.

A hurricane center map shows Alberto approaching the Gulf Coast on Monday, somewhere between Louisiana and the Florida Panhandle.

"However, a general slow motion toward the north is expected through the weekend, followed by a northwest turn by Monday", the update states.

Highest winds remained at 40 miles per hour.

Trump had argued that the court did not have the power to issue a direct order against the president . The judge said Trump and Scavino must "remedy" the situation by unblocking accounts .

The NHC said Friday afternoon that Alberto was "meandering over the northwestern Caribbean Sea". Tropical storm watches are also in effect for parts of Mexico and Cuba. Gustav 2002 was the first subtropical storm to be named.

A tropical storm watch means that tropical storm conditions are possible within the watch area, in this case within the next 24 hours.

Harvey battered the Gulf Coast from Louisiana to Central America. The odds have increased since the storm began brewing.

The latest models have shifted the system farther to the left into parts of the MS and Alabama coast lines.

The official National Hurricane Center forecast shows the storm coming to shore in MS, the midway point of the projected computer models.

For the last few days, the National Hurricane Center has been monitoring a low pressure system on the eastern edge of the Yucatan Peninsula.

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

Another great resource would be the National Weather Service in Mobile. Regardless of whether the system strengthens, it will bring locally heavy rain to much of Florida into early next week.
