Scattered showers and storms to hit Central Florida

Scattered showers and storms to hit Central Florida

In that forecast, Alberto's center has moved ashore into the Southeast U.S., and the tail has swung back over land - meaning persistent rain, heavy at times with gusty winds in South Florida. However, at least scattered showers and storms will remain possible but the coverage should be much less compared to earlier in the week.

A tornado threat exists in the front-right quadrants of the storm, which today is northern Florida and most of Georgia and SC.

A Flash Flood Watch has been issued for Hancock, Baldwin, Jones, Monroe, Bibb, Crawford, Peach, Taylor and Macon counties until Wednesday morning.

At 11 a.m. ET Sunday, the National Hurricane Centre said Alberto was about 210 kilometres west-southwest of Tampa, Fla., and moving north at 22 km/h. It had winds of up to 60 miles per hour and was expected to increase to tropical storm conditions as it gets closer to shore.

Alberto - the first named storm of the 2018 hurricane season that officially starts June 1 - is expected to strengthen until it reaches the northern Gulf Coast, likely on Monday night.

Clouds are still lingering over the region, and as the storm continues its northerly push with a forecast Monday landfall in the Florida Panhandle, it is drawing significant moisture from the south, according to the National Weather Service.

Premier John Horgan and Alberta Premier Rachel Notley have had public spats over the future of the pipeline, even throwing in trade threats at one point.

At 700 AM CDT (1200 UTC), the center of Subtropical Storm Alberto was located near latitude 29.0 North, longitude 86.0 West. Alberto is moving northward near 6 miles per hour (9 km/h).

Jeffrey Medlin, meteorologist in charge at the National Weather Service's Mobile office, warned that even after the storm passes there will still be swells that could cause risky rip currents.

Alberto is predicted to move northward at a faster rate after making landfall in the western Florida Panhandle on Monday. Storm surge flooding was less of a concern because Alberto's arrival would not coincide with high tide, he said. With a subtropical storm, the strongest winds and thunderstorms are located far away from the center, even though they may be just as strong as those found in a tropical storm. She said "strong squalls off and on" had kept her inside.

"It was a 50-50 chance of whether to come down and we made a decision to chance it", Gasper said.

Hardest hit will be small businesses that expected revenue from Memorial Day weekend tourists, Watson said. "We'll hang out and see how it goes".

A separate storm system on Sunday caused flash flooding in the Baltimore suburb of Ellicott City, Maryland, turning its historic Main Street into a raging river with water reaching past the first floor of buildings and sweeping cars down the road, local news video showed.
