Watch Tropical Storm Alberto Make Landfall

Alberto

We will still have leftover rain to deal with as moisture from the Gulf of Mexico continues to stream into the state.

Alberto was moving slowly up the Gulf coast, traveling at 8 miles per hour, up from 6 miles per hour at the 8 a.m. advisory.

Some of the rain will by heavy. What had sprung up from the Gulf of Mexico as a subtropical storm was now a vast, soggy system trekking inland as it flung rain - heavy at times - all around the US southeast. Finally, on Friday, it appears that another inch of rain will be possible.

A water vapor satellite image from Monday morning reveals dry air (oranges and yellows) pinwheeling its way into Alberto's circulation. One to four hurricanes could be "major" with sustained winds of at least 111 miles per hour (178 kph).(backslash)(backslash) If that forecast holds, it would make for a near-normal or above-normal season.

According to Gardner, the rain will come in bands Monday, picking up in intensity with some heavy downpours before slowing down.

"We're going to play cards and if there's a break, we'll head down to the beach", she said.

Otherwise, temperatures are very warm and quite muggy outside with most starting out in the mid 70s.

"Most of the rain will be today and tonight", said Gardner, although scattered storms and showers will be present throughout the week.

Residents capture Maryland floods surging through Baltimore region
One sight during the flood: a handmade, white flag hung from an upper story of a Main Street building bearing the letters SOS. The Patapsco River, located southeast of Ellicott City, experienced a 17-foot-climb in water levels over those two hours.

A storm surge watch remains in effect for much of northern Florida, from the Suwannee to Navarre in the Panhandle.

Gov. Roy Cooper issued a statement calling on North Carolina residents from the mountains to the coast to watch the weather and be prepared. The storm has already caused flooding and power outages in some areas across the south and was moving north in the direction of the Great Lakes Tuesday.

Lifeguards posted red flags along the white sands of Pensacola Beach, where swimming and wading were banned amid high surf and risky conditions.

Alberto, the first storm of the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season, spawned scattered flooding in Alabama as it weakened into a subtropical depression on Tuesday, a day after two journalists were killed in North Carolina when a tree fell on their auto.

The National Hurricane Center also said that swells, which could cause life-threatening surf and rip current condition, could affect the eastern and northern Gulf Coast through Tuesday.

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.

Florida, Alabama, and MS have all declared states of emergency, with rainfall in some areas expected to be over a dozen inches.

With conditions expected to worsen overnight officials are encouraging vacationers leaving the Gulf Coast on Monday to give themselves extra time.
