Alberto helping bring potentially flooding rain to the Triangle on Memorial Day

A tropical storm watch is in effect for Tampa even though the city is not in the forecast cone, Graham said in his advisory.

"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.

A tropical storm warning is in effect for a stretch of coastline between Florida's Suwannee River and the Alabama-Florida border.

Its winds, which had strengthened overnight to 65 miles per hour, were down to 60 miles per hour as of 11 a.m.

Strong storms possible Thursday and Friday: As Alberto moves away, a different type of summertime weather pattern kicks in; that could deliver some intense summertime storms on Thursday and Friday.

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

As tropical storm Alberto plows through the Gulf of Mexico, it appears to have set a course north through Alabama and Tennessee.

The first named storm of the 2018 hurricane season that starts Friday prompted Florida, Alabama and MS to launch emergency preparations Saturday. At the moment nearly all of the showers are on the east of Alberto's centre, with the heaviest rains falling across Cuba and Florida. The rain could lead to flash floods and mudslides on the island.

Hawaii volcano 'may become more explosive' at any time
On Tuesday, a plume of ash from the volcano rose 12,000 feet into the air, dropping ash on large sections of the island. The new fissure emitting steam and lava spatter spurred Hawaii officials to call for more evacuations on Sunday.

Some tornadoes could also be touched off. One to four hurricanes could be "major" with sustained winds of at least 111 miles per hour (178 kph).

Alberto is the first named storm of the 2018 hurricane season - a season that doesn't formally begin until June 1, the National Hurricane Center says.

Waters off the eastern and northern Gulf Coast are expected to be rough through Tuesday.

Authorities in Howard County, Maryland, said a 39-year-old man was missing after flash flooding from a separate storm tore through the historic downtown of Ellicott City on Sunday.

"On the forecast track, the center of Alberto will move over the northern Gulf of Mexico overnight and cross the northern Gulf Coast in the warning area on Monday", the National Hurricane Center said.

Subtropical storms can strengthen into tropical storms, but Alberto is not expected to do so before reaching land, and will quickly weaken after landfall. Parts of Florida, Georgia and Alabama could get from 4 to 8 inches (10 to 20 centimeters) with some areas getting as much as a foot of rain.

Jeffrey Medlin, meteorologist in charge at the National Weather Service's Mobile office, warned that even after the storm moves north there will still be swells coming up from the south that could cause unsafe rip currents.
