The look of Alberto appears to be a bit ragged which is typical of subtropical cyclones. Strong upper air winds are still occurring but those winds are forecast to relax over the weekend as Alberto moves northward. Right now the big issue is rain that is moving through Central & South Florida with some heavy rains along the Florida West Coast. Several inches of additional rain or more is forecast over the weekend on top of heavy rain that fell last week so flooding will be front and center here.

There isn’t much change in the Hurricane Center’s forecast. The watch area is highlighted in yellow and extends from Northwest Florida to Southeast Louisiana. We will continue to monitor this through the weekend. There is no threat to our area  from this over the Memorial Day Weekend. We have our own issues with a cold front stalling out to our south with an onshore flow for Sunday and  Monday and some on and off showers. Saturday continues to look very warm to hot with highs near 90 inland..cooler along the shower and the chance for an evening thunderstorm.
