Alberto forms in Caribbean, bringing wet weekend to Florida

Alberto forms in Caribbean, bringing wet weekend to Florida

Alberto, appearing a week before the official start of hurricane season, maintained sustained winds of 40 miles per hour and halted its forward movement Friday afternoon, although it is expected to resume a course toward the coasts of Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama.

The last week of May will provide what looks like the first tropical system of the year with tropical development looking more and more likely in the eastern Gulf of Mexico. Heavy rains were expected in western Cuba, Florida and the northern Gulf Coast into next week. Heavy rain will likely begin to affect the central Gulf Coast region and the southeastern Untied states later this weekend and continue into early next week.

The system sits east of the Yucatan Peninsula but moving northward.

Subtropical Storm Alberto has formed in the Gulf of Mexico as we head into Memorial Day weekend.

Here is a historical plot of some of the systems that became tropical storms before June 1.

Forecasters say a tropical weather system moving toward the Gulf of Mexico is strengthening. The biggest threat appears at time time to be heavy rain and possible flooding.

He captioned the sweet video: "What started as a ground breaking music video ended in a savage attack by a cowardly K9". Hemsworth denied in the interview that Liam and Cyrus had Wednesday in secret.

The system is now near the Yucatan Peninsula but could develop in the Southern Gulf by Saturday, ABC News reports.

Torrential rain, flooding and thunderstorms are likely across the Caribbean, the Gulf states and southern U.S. states even if a tropical storm does not materialise.

The difference between a "subtropical' and "tropical storm" is just a structural one that scientists used to distinguish the storms".

The potential for flooding will increase early next week, the weather service said, adding that the rainfall could produce life-threatening flash floods and mudslides.

"Rain totals over the next 5-7 days should reach the 2-4" range with locally higher amounts.

Depending on the exact track and strength, while it's not expected to become a hurricane, we could see tropical storm force winds in spots, minor storm surge and even some severe thunderstorms.
