Alberto forecast: More rain to hit South Florida Monday night

Acting FEMA Deputy Administrator Daniel Kaniewski said people in at-risk areas should keep tabs on the news and pay attention to alerts from local officials, ensure that they have good evacuation plans, and make sure that they have insurance that will cover flood damage.

Alberto remains below hurricane strength, but is still expected to gust into the Florida Panhandle with 40-50 miles per hour winds, which could spin up a few isolated tornadoes.

Mandatory evacuations were issued for Franklin County's barrier islands and anybody living on the coastline in mobile homes and recreational vehicle parks.

Subtropical Storm Alberto is expected to accelerate north of Florida Tuesday, taking much of the hazardous weather concerns with it.

While Alberto is not expected to take a track anywhere near the Coastal Empire and Low Country directly. a lot of tropical moisture surging north ahead of the track will likely lead to very heavy downpours tonight into the early parts of Memorial Day.

A Tropical Storm Warning remains in effect from the Suwannee River in Florida to the Alabama/Florida border. The storm is also pushing rain bands towards the coast, Gardner said, so there could be some heavy rain there as well.

Heavy rains and gusty winds continue to spread northward over Florida. No tornadoes were reported Sunday, however, in the Florida Peninsula.

Alberto has maximum sustained winds of near 65mph and those speeds are expected before the storm makes landfall.

As much as two to three inches of rain may come down east of the storm's center through Wednesday morning.

A storm surge watch means life-threatening conditions are possible from rising water moving inland from the coast.

Winds from the storm are forecast to hit Florida's Panhandle on Sunday night.

It is forecast to drop as much as 30cm (12in) of rain across MS to western Georgia and to bring storm swells of about 60-120cm (2-4ft) to low-lying areas.

Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant authorized the use of the National Guard and Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey issued declared that a state of emergency for 40 counties to begin at 6 a.m. Sunday.
