Storm Alberto: When will subtropical storm make landfall? Thousands forced to evacuate
29 May 2018, 02:33 | Marta Robbins
On Monday, Alberto is forecast to make landfall somewhere along the northern Gulf Coast - likely somewhere along the coastal region of the Florida Panhandle or southern Alabama.
Flooding was possible in Florida's Miami-Dade and Monroe counties after weeks of rain, with tornadoes possible Saturday and Sunday and rip currents expected on both coasts, forecasters said.
In addition to parts of the southeastern USA, the heavy rains and storm conditions could produce "life-threatening flash floods and mudslides" in Cuba, the NHC said. Tropical Storm Arlene formed in the Central Atlantic Ocean last April, but had fairly minimum impacts on land. It's moving north at 14 miles per hour (22 kph), and has top sustained winds of 50 miles per hour (85 kph).
A storm surge watch remains in effect for much of northern Florida, from the Suwannee to Navarre in the Panhandle. Isolated areas could see as much as 15 inches.
Precipitation will likely remain under a quarter of an inch, possibly higher if thunderstorms roll through the area. Two to six inches were possible from Tennessee east through the Carolinas.
Lifeguards posted red flags along the white sands of Pensacola Beach, where swimming and wading are banned due to high surf and unsafe conditions.
Heavy downpours were expected to begin lashing parts of Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama on Sunday.

While forecasters discontinued the tropical storm warning west of the Florida-Alabama border, they were still concerned about the storm surge and flash flooding in the Panhandle.
The system developed Friday morning near the northwestern Caribbean Sea.
Pasco County is now under a Tropical Storm Warning.
Some tourists said the rainy weather would not dampen their vacations.
Alberto has been a subtropical storm since its formation because it lacked the warm core that forms the core of tropical storms. A faster northward to northwestward motion is expected over the new few days. "So how often can you say you rode a storm out?"
Scarlett Rustemeyer, a barista at the Fosko Coffee Barre in Pensacola Beach, said she always frets about power outages whenever storms bluster through. Today, we'll find some middle ground, although we hang closer to the cooler numbers overall.
The heaviest rain will fall along the Gulf Coast where more than a half a foot of rain could accumulate.
A tropical storm watch means that tropical storm conditions are possible for the area and time frame described.
