Alberto bringing heavy rain to area this Memorial Day

While the Southeast deals with Alberto it will be hot in the central U.S. on Sunday and Monday

Continued weakening is forecast as Alberto moves farther inland, and Alberto is expected to become a subtropical depression later tonight, and degenerate into a remnant low by Tuesday afternoon.

A tropical storm warning remained in effect stretching from Florida's Suwannee River to the border of Alabama and Mississippi.

Alberto is expected to produce heavy rainfall and flooding over western Cuba, South Florida and the Florida Keys, the National Hurricane Center said Sunday. The main threat is from heavy rain that could lead to flooding, the city said, but also high winds and storm surge could cause problems.

Forecasters said Alberto could bring risky high water to southern coastal states when it douses an area from MS to western Georgia with up to 30cm of rain and possible tornadoes.

Monday: We are now see a small break in the shield of rain, but bands of rain with isolated storms are beginning to move into Southeast Alabama.

He urged Washington and Pyongyang to resolve their differences through "more direct and closer dialogue between their leaders". Trump said "I'd rather not say" whether he has spoken with North Korea's leader.

Thousands have been evacuated from the coast of Florida as the region braces for subtropical storm Alberto.

"Alberto will make landfall as a subtropical storm", reported AccuWeather spokesman and hurricane expert Dan Kottlowski. The storm is moving toward the north near 10 miles per hour (17 km/h). The Jacksonville International Airport received 1.37 inches of rain Sunday, according the National Weather Service, while the Gainesville Regional Airport reportedly measured only 0.92 inches.

Tropical Storm Alberto has already caused major rain and wind as it passed by the west coast of Cuba. "That includes tropical-storm-force winds of 39-55 miles per hour, a storm surge potential, heavy rain and the potential for isolated tornadoes". Alberto formed several days ahead of the June 1 official start of the six-month Atlantic hurricane season. The rain could lead to flash floods and mudslides on the island.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration released a hurricane season forecast Thursday that calls for 10 to 16 named storms, with five to nine hurricanes. "A secondary concern is that even relatively minimal tropical storm winds can topple trees due to saturated soils and water-heavy limbs". The U.S. Golf Association canceled a practice round of the U.S. Women's Open Championship, being played at Shoal Creek, because of the weather and Alabama Power Co. said about 20,000 homes and businesses were without electricity Tuesday, most in the Birmingham area.
