Subtropical Depression Alberto bringing plenty of rain to the Carolinas

While Alberto nears the shore, the warning area has been scaled back from the Suwannee River back west to the Florida-Alabama state line.

"Alberto has maximum sustained winds of 65 miles per hour (105 km per hour) which is about 10 miles (16 km) shy of being a hurricane".

Forecasters said Alberto could bring life-threatening high water to southern coastal states when it slams an area from MS to western Georgia with up to 12 inches (30 cm) of rain and possible tornadoes. A few tropical-storm-force gusts also are possible across portions of Alabama Tuesday morning, and a tornado or two may occur Tuesday from southern Kentucky to parts of Georgia.

Bringing with it damaging winds, heavy rainfall, flooding, and storm surges, Alberto has already proven to be deadly, with WYFF-TV Anchor Mike McCormick and photojournalist Aaron Smeltzer of Greenville, South Carolina being killed after a tree fell on their SUV.

At 700 PM CDT (0000 UTC), the center of Subtropical Storm Alberto was located near latitude 30.9 North, longitude 86.1 West.

Another 1 to 2 inches of rain is expected through Sunday in the Manatee-Sarasota area, though specific areas could receive much more.

Subtropical Depression Alberto is bringing plenty of rain from the Gulf Coast all the way up through the Mid-Atlantic region as it makes progress to the north from Alabama.

After moving on shore, the center of Alberto will probably move into northern Alabama by Tuesday.

Alberto made a Memorial Day landfall near Laguna Beach, Fla, just west of Panama City, andofficials warned of unsafe conditions even though its maximum sustained winds fell to 45 miles per hour.

STORM SURGE: Water levels along the northeast Gulf of Mexico coast are receding, and will continue to do so overnight. Last year, there were 17 named storms, 10 of which became hurricanes; the first named storm was Arlene - a rare preseason tropical storm that arrived in April.

Persistent rain is not expected to ease until midweek, forecasters said.

Alberto has been a subtropical storm since its formation because it lacked the warm core that forms the core of tropical storms.

The storm is expected to spin up multiple tornadoes as it marches inland after making landfall this afternoon.

A flash flood watch remains in effect through Monday night in parts of the state. "The rain that's widespread over us now is going to shift north of us, so we'll be left with just scattered thunderstorms". It is showing signs of transitioning to something more tropical as deeper convection has developed near the center. Isolated areas could see as much as 38 centimetres.
