This is the first named storm of the 2018 hurricane season

Alberto is predicted to move northward at a faster rate after making landfall in the western Florida Panhandle on Monday. We will still have leftover rain to deal with as moisture from the Gulf of Mexico continues to stream into the state.

The moisture pouring northward coincides with Subtropical Storm Alberto, which approached the Florida Panhandle from the Gulf on Monday morning with sustained winds of up to 65 miles per hour.

Some of the rain will by heavy. "There's not going to be a lot of grilling or boating going on - it's going to be messy". With maximum sustained winds of 45 miles per hour (72 kph), Alberto was moving north at 9 miles per hour (14 kph). The persistent rain associated with Alberto's tail is just offshore of South Florida Monday and south of the Florida Keys. Winds are forecast to reach 60 mph 12 hours and it should be over land in the Florida Panhandle in 24 hours. Highlands North Carolina got 8 inches of rain in five days, Everett said.

According to Gardner, the rain will come in bands Monday, picking up in intensity with some heavy downpours before slowing down.

By Tuesday, showers will be more scattered, and it warms back into the 80s.

We will have to watch the far eastern side of Alabama today once we get a little heating and the atmosphere destabilizes because storms that form could produce strong wind gusts or even spin up tornadoes.

Gov. Roy Cooper issued a statement calling on North Carolina residents from the mountains to the coast to watch the weather and be prepared.

Four deadly hurricanes struck the USA a year ago, killing at least 144 people and causing billions of dollars in damage, massive power outages and devastating hundreds of thousands of homes and businesses, according to the NHC.

Janet Rhumes said her group of friends from Kansas had been planning their Memorial Day weekend on Navarre Beach since October, and no tropical storm could deter them. Lifeguards posted red flags along the white sands of Pensacola Beach, where swimming and wading were banned due to high surf and unsafe conditions.

Subtropical Storm Alberto gained the early jump on the 2018 hurricane season as it headed toward anticipated landfall sometime Monday on the northern Gulf Coast, where white sandy beaches emptied of their usual Memorial Day crowds.

AL.com reported that double red flags are flying at beaches in Panama City and other areas, which means there are life-threatening rip currents.

Governors in Florida, Mississippi and Alabama on Saturday declared states of emergency.

With conditions expected to worsen overnight officials are encouraging vacationers leaving the Gulf Coast on Monday to give themselves extra time.

Isolated tornadoes were possible across the region on Sunday and Monday.
