Subtropical Storm Alberto continues to churn north through the Gulf of Mexico

On Monday, Alberto is expected to make landfall tomorrow in the Panhandle of Florida before quickly weakening.

"I'm concerned and I'm listening and that's all I can do take it one step at a time", said Carmella from Saraland, Alabama.

Sustained winds from the season's first named storm had dropped to 45 miles per hour before coming ashore about 4:45 p.m. - down from 65 miles per hour Sunday night. The storm's remnants could reach Upstate by Wednesday night or Thursday, according to local National Weather Service offices.

On Monday, Alberto was off the coast of Florida, moving north towards Tennessee.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott issued a declaration for all 67 counties in his state.

Slowly strengthening Subtropical Storm Alberto could cause more than $1 billion in economic losses to the U.S. Gulf Coast as it tracks north, bringing a growing threat of floods, but it's had little impact on offshore energy production.

If you are heading to the Florida beaches or along the Gulf Coast starting in MS, you will still be under the Tropical Storm Watch and a Storm Surge Watch into Tuesday because Alberto is tracking closer to the Florida Panhandle.

Heavy rains were expected across Florida and in parts of Alabama and Georgia.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe also spoke at the forum and called for closer cooperation with Russian Federation . The Kremlin leader said that a combination of sanctions, trade barriers and a lack of trust was hugely unsafe .

In addition to parts of the southeastern US, the heavy rains and storm conditions could produce "life-threatening flash floods and mudslides" in Cuba, the NHC said.

A few tornadoes were also possible across the Florida peninsula Sunday. The storm's top winds fell to 60 mph and it's expected to weaken further after it moves over land, gradually falling apart over the next 36 hours until it's completely swallowed up by another weather system over Canada late this week.

Alberto formed days ahead of the official start of the six-month Atlantic hurricane season on June 1.

The flood watch runs to 8 p.m. Sunday, during the period when Alberto is expected to pass closest to South Florida on its course toward the northern Gulf coast. Subtropical storms can develop into tropical storms, which in turn can strengthen into hurricanes.That tropical moisture will make its way into North Carolina Monday and Tuesday.

"Hazardous storm surge is possible along portions of the central and eastern Gulf Coast beginning Sunday".

Janet Rhumes said her group of friends from Kansas had been planning their Memorial Day weekend on Navarre Beach since October, and no tropical storm could deter them.

The hurricane center said a tropical storm warning was in effect from the Suwannee River in Florida to the Alabama-Florida state line.
