Louisiana no longer under tropical storm watch

A tropical storm watch has been issued for the west coast of Florida, from Boca Grande to the Anclote River, an area that include Manatee, Sarasota and the rest of the Tampa Bay region.

MS governor Phil Bryant has declared a state of emergency as the storm moves toward the state's coast.

Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant authorized the use of the National Guard "and other state resources ... should they become necessary".

Alberto is holding steady with max winds of 40 miles per hour and is moving to the north at 13 miles per hour.

The Air Force Reserve's Hurricane Hunters again flew out Saturday to gather data on the storm, and it has not strengthened much if at all, the center says.

The track began trending east on Friday and continues to bring the center of the storm east of Southeast Louisiana.

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

The warning area stretches from Mobile, Alabama across the coast along the Florida Panhandle.

A subtropical storm has a less defined and cooler center than a tropical storm, and its strongest winds are found farther from its center. It will head for the WKRG News 5 area, for a likely landfall Monday somewhere from the MS coast to the Florida Panhandle, as a strong Tropical Storm. By Saturday morning, the storm was gathering strength as it moved north.

Current indications show Alberto will likely make landfall between New Orleans and the western Panhandle Monday afternoon or evening. West Palm Beach, which experienced its 15th straight day of rain on Saturday, got 1.14 inches of rain on Friday, breaking the record of 1.08 inches for Friday that was set on May 25, 1972.

Rip Currents: Moderate risk today and high risk Sunday and Monday as onshore winds and seas increase. Storm surge watches also have been issued for parts of the Gulf Coast, for a possible surge ranging from 2 to 4 feet. These winds may be accompanied by storm surge, coastal flooding, and/or river flooding.

Last year, Tropical Storm Arlene formed in the central Atlantic and was named on April 20.

Rain chances will be minimal on Tuesday before increasing again on Wednesday.

Already, there was a rainfall record. Several more inches of rain is likely this weekend from Alberto.

"But for the most part, the storms associated with Alberto extend off to the north, and especially to the east, of the newer center of circulation down between Cuba and the Yucatan".

Even before Alberto arrives, local thunderstorms are possible, with the potential for heavy rain.

Gradual strengthening is forecast until the system reaches the northern Gulf Coast by Monday night.
