New Orleans area under tropical storm watch as Alberto moves toward Gulf

Tropical Storm Sebastian, Vero Beach to get minimal impact from Tropical Storm Alberto

It's expected to stay at "tropical storm" status through the duration of its life, not strengthening into a hurricane. The highest winds are also now away from the center.

Some far western N.C. counties along the Georgia border could see as much as 10 inches of rain, NOAA reported Friday.

It's still unknown how big Alberto could get - some forecasting models show it hovering around as a tropical depression with heavy rains, while others show its wind speeds growing all the way to hurricane force.

Sub-tropical storm Alberto formed just south of the Gulf this morning and is expected to move into the Gulf overnight with its sights set on the Northern Gulf Coast this holiday weekend.

The National Hurricane Center reports that the tropical disturbance over the Yucatan Peninsula is gradually becoming better defined and now has a higher chance of development, CBS Miami reports.

A Tropical Storm Watch and a Storm Surge Watch now cover all of our coasts and bays that touch the coast like Mobile Bay, Escambia Bay, East Bay, Choctawhatchee Bay.

In its 5 a.m. advisory, the National Hurricane Center said that the Florida Keys and Southwest Florida should begin to feel the effects of Alberto this evening and tonight, with the possibility of "a tornado or two".

The projected paths of this system range from Louisiana to the west coast of Florida. An average hurricane season produces 12 named storms, of which six become hurricanes, including three major hurricanes. An additional 1-4 inches of rain will be possible, which could result in minor flooding.

Another flash flood watch may be issued to include the incoming tropical rainfall. The rain is also expected to threaten building structures in low-lying areas. We could see minor coastal flooding and we certainly will see a high risk of rip currents. If it becomes a storm, it will be named Alberto.
