Is it going to rain on Memorial Day Monday in Miami?

Subtropical Storm Alberto continues to churn north through the Gulf of Mexico

Throughout Memorial Day, rain chances are at least at 80 percent or more.

Power outages, some tornadoes, flooding rain, and some coastal flooding from storm surge is still expected as far east as the Big Bend between the peninsula and the panhandle. Tides are expected to be 2 to 3 feet above normal from Homosassa Springs south to Bonita Beach Sunday.

Areas across the Gulf Coast will see widespread rain amount between 4-8 inches. An additional 1-4 inches of rain will be possible, which could result in minor flooding.

Much of the state was under flash flood watches. A high surf warning was in effect through 7 p.m. Tuesday local time. "Tuesday, things might start picking up again", said Will Corless, also a meteorologist with the weather service in Jacksonville.

Forecasters said Alberto has most recently taken a north-northwest track that would bring it over the northern Gulf of Mexico during the night and make landfall on or in the vicinity of the Florida Panhandle on Monday.

At 8 AM the storm was SW of Tampa and moving North at 15 miles per hour and is forecasted to strengthen over the next few days.

Alberto is expected to cause heavy rains in South Florida and the Florida Keys while a tropical storm watch is in effect for parts of MS and Alabama. As of late Sunday night, it had 65 mph winds, and the center was roughly 100 miles south of Apalachicola, Florida. This means that it is transforming from a "regular" weather system into a tropical one which gets its energy from the warm waters of the ocean.

"While Subtropical Storm Alberto is shifting eastward with a lessened impact on New Orleans, this is an important reminder that hurricane season begins June 1st", Cantrell said in a release. West Palm Beach, which experienced its 15th straight day of rain on Saturday, got 1.14 inches of rain on Friday, breaking the record of 1.08 inches for Friday that was set on May 25, 1972. Gov. Rick Scott declared a state of emergency, which gives him wide latitude to prepare.

"On the forecast track, the center of Alberto will move over the northern Gulf of Mexico tonight and cross the northern Gulf Coast in the warning area on Monday", the center said. Subtropical storms can develop into tropical storms, which in turn can strengthen into hurricanes.

Winds will remain gusty for the rest of the holiday weekend, but tropical-storm force winds will stay well to our west.
