Things looking better and better for Louisiana with Alberto forecast

Things looking better and better for Louisiana with Alberto forecast

Moist air will replace the drier air mass overnight as Subtropical Storm Alberto moves northeast in the Gulf of Mexico.

The system is now off the southeastern Yucatan Peninsula but it's expected to move northward.

The NHC predicted 10 inches to 15 inches of rain with isolated totals of 25 inches in the Yucatan Peninsula and western Cuba. However, I caution that we are still under a tropical storm and storm surge watch meaning tropical storm force winds and coastal flooding are still possible. Most of that rain is expected to fall starting Sunday night. High tide arrives there Sunday afternoon, coinciding with the effects of the "sloppy" Alberto. Southeast wind 10 to 15 miles per hour, with gusts as high as 25 miles per hour are expected on Sunday.

Rain accumulations around the state line region have not changed drastically from previous expectations.

Earlier, Gov. Rick Scott declared a state of emergency for all of the state's 67 counties. Subtropical Storm Alberto, our first of the year, is making it's way into the Gulf of Mexico right now. "It'll be a long season with this tropical disturbance out there before June 1".

The Storm Surge Watch is in effect from Horseshoe Beach in Florida's Dixie County Florida to the mouth of the Mississippi River.

He said that instead, "Democrats have already made clear that the resolution today is about the elections in November". The Senate voted 52-47 yesterday to overturn the decision late past year to end Net Neutrality rules.

Alberto is classified as a subtropical storm, though it could develop into a more traditional tropical system by the time it makes landfall Sunday night or Monday.

However the models do agree that Alberto is expected to slowly gain strength as it moves over the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico. But with the ground already saturated by previous rains, he said it's possible trees could be uprooted and fall on power lines, causing outages.

The hurricane center said heavy rain will likely begin to reach the northern Gulf Coast later this weekend and last until early next week.

Forecasters noted in their discussion about the storm, "Alberto is not very well organized this morning". Locally HIGHER amounts are possible.

The City of Tallahassee and Leon County are also opening up sandbag locations ahead of this weekend's inclement weather.
