SUNCOAST – Subtropical Storm Alberto forms in the northwestern Caribbean Sea Friday, May 25, moving slowly towards the Gulf of Mexico.
A subtropical storm is a system that has tropical and non-tropical characteristics.
Impacts from the system along the Suncoast will begin Saturday afternoon with heavier downpours spreading in from the south. Heavy rain is possible through Saturday and into Sunday, as well as into Memorial Day. Most locations will receive three to five inches of rain with higher amounts possible.
We could see some 40+ mph wind gusts tomorrow and Sunday, but the primary threat from #Alberto will remain heavy rain. The Suncoast will likely get 3-6” of rain with isolated higher totals thru Mem. Day. https://t.co/c0w2Y2QnGD
