Beach weather looks less than ideal for Memorial Day weekend

   ON TRACK Tropical storm Alberto is on course to hit the US over the weekend

The storm on Saturday afternoon was last located about 105 km north-northwest of the western tip of Cuba and 315 km southwest of the Dry Tortugas, which is nearly 113 km west of Key West, Florida, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC).

"Locally heavy rainfall is forecast across western Cuba and over much of Florida and the northern Gulf Coast into early next week", the National Hurricane Center said.

The ragged form of Subtropical Storm Alberto was still evident late Friday afternoon, but anticipation for some strengthening over the Memorial Day weekend continues. A storm surge watch was also issued for parts of Florida, Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana.

Tropical storm watches were expanded a bit for the northern Gulf Coast and now extend from the Aucilla River in Florida to Grand Isle in Louisiana, including Lake Pontchartrain and Lake Maurepas.

The system will be named Alberto if it reaches the storm level.

Cedar Key, an island city off the northwest coast at Florida's big bend, is an area of particular concern at this time, Graham said.

According to the National Hurricane Centre, Subtropical Storm Alberto has formed near Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula and is set to bring heavy rainfall to the state of Florida and the northeastern Gulf Coast.

FRIDAY AND SATURDAY: Scattered thunderstorms well away from Alberto are possible in the afternoons. That's a typical trait of subtropical storms, which have maximum winds far from the center, rather than clustered tightly around the center like a tropical storm. Isolated tornadoes were also possible.

As we have seen in years past, environmental conditions sometimes allow for development before the hurricane season begins.

Flood watches have already been established all throughout Alabama and Georgia, the National Hurricane Center reported.

The weekend Memorial Day barbecue and your summer-opening dip in the ocean isn't looking too good. Since May 14, most of Marion County has racked up 9.29 inches of rain, about 7 inches above normal, and most of Alachua County has tallied about 5.38 inches, or about 3.5 inches above normal for May. "It'll be a long season with this tropical disturbance out there before June 1".
