Subtropical Storm Alberto to bring rain for the holiday

Tropical depression formation expected Saturday

Often, these storms have a radius of maximum winds which is farther out than what is observed for purely "tropical" systems.

"On Monday, there is more of chance of thunderstorms", said Kennedy, stating those storms will be more from the traditional summertime clashing of sea breezes along the Interstate 75 corridor.

Flooding is possible in Miami-Dade and Monroe counties after weeks of rain that in some locations pushed total rainfall to more than two or three times the usual May amounts. As of the 5 pm update from the National Hurricane Center, the storm was maintaining winds of 40 miles per hour, the force of a weak tropical storm.

"Right now, we've been pumping 24/7 since last Sunday", said South Florida Water Management District employee Carl Olsen.

The NBC2 First Alert Hurricane Tracking Team has issued a SEVERE WEATHER FIRST ALERT for Saturday because of a severe weather threat from Alberto.

Coverage of rain will be around 60 percent, and these things will continue to form in random spots and produce the risk of heavy rain and lightning.

Heavy rain from Alberto is expected to spread northward and affect the northern Gulf Coast over the holiday weekend. Subtropical storms show some, but not all, of the characteristics of a tropical storm.

Alberto will likely make it number one.

Heavy rain is expected to gradually taper down mid to late next week.

"That's when things can start getting a little interesting here", King said.

Saturday and Sunday are less predictable. It's expected to stay at "tropical storm" status through the duration of its life, not strengthening into a hurricane.

Memorial Day is the traditional beginning of beach season, but the weather service issued warnings about risky currents along the Gulf Coast during the holiday period. These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.

For now, I wouldn't give up your weekend plans.

Tropical Storm Watches have been posted for Hancock, Harrison and Jackson counties in South Mississippi.
