Florida, Gulf prepare for subtropical storm Alberto

Florida weather forecast rain Tropical storm

Subtropical Storm Alberto formed over the northwestern Caribbean Sea Friday morning, according to the National Hurricane Center. For Alberto to be considered a "tropical" storm, relatively warm air must be contained within its center. Their effects are exactly the same, and the move in the same pattern.

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

Daily rains will continue through Memorial Day weekend as forecasters say it is likely that a low pressure system approaching the Gulf of Mexico will strengthen into a depression.

If the forecasts hold true, this will be an above-average hurricaNE season, with an average one producing 12 named storms, six of which become hurricanes, including three major hurricanes.

Keep an eye on this developing situation as this tropical disturbance nears the Gulf this week and we learn more about its ultimate track and potential impacts. That would certainly mean a wet Memorial Day weekend in the New Orleans area and at Gulf Coast beaches in Mississippi, Alabama and Florida.

The middle school was on lockdown part of the morning, said Jackie Chatteron, a receptionist for the school district. Noblesville, which is about 20 miles (32 kilometers) northeast of Indianapolis, is home to about 50,000 people.

While some models show the storm intensifying to a Cat 1 hurricane, forecasters have been more hesitant to call it while the system remains close to the Yucatan peninsula.

It is unusual for storms to reach name criterion - winds of at least 39 miles per hour - in May in the Atlantic Basin, which includes the Gulf and Caribbean Sea. The weather service is warning beachgoers at the Jersey shore of the risk of rip currents associated with the current forecast.

Make sure you've got Live Alert 19 if you're traveling to the coast this weekend for the latest advisories, radar imagery, and any severe weather alerts if they're issued. The most frequent and heaviest rain will be to the west of I-95.

The rain is expected to begin sometime late Saturday and remain steady into early next week.
