Tropical storm watches issued ahead of Alberto

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

A named tropical storm in May would be a rare, but not unprecedented, occurrence given the hurricane season does not officially start until June 1. It is now a disorganized area of thunderstorms in the western Caribbean.

An Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft is scheduled to investigate.

Hurricane forecasters analyze a combination of short and long-term climate trends, along with sophisticated computer models when making their predictions for a hurricane season.

Although the east side of the storm isn't expected to reach Broward, Miami-Dade or Palm Beach counties, the storm's outer bands are expected to bring the area heavy rain, gusts of up to 35 miles per hour, strong rip currents and the possibility of tornadoes, according to a 3 p.m. briefing by the National Weather Service in Miami.

More than anything, this will be a huge, sprawling, big rainmaker for the southeast.

For now, I wouldn't give up your weekend plans.

As Alberto moves into the Gulf on Saturday, Southwest Florida will be in the infamous right front quadrant of the storm.

Per the police report: "Based on the totality of the circumstances Terrance was believed to be intoxicated in a public place". The Dallas Cowboys were hoping to get past the off-the-field issues that have plagued the franchise for years.

The rest of the state can also expect rain, though in the range of 2 to 4 inches.

A flash flood watch has been issued for every coastal county in the Mobile office's jurisdiction - an area that includes Escambia and Santa Rosa counties and stretches from Northwest Florida to MS - beginning at 7 p.m. Saturday and running to 7 p.m. Tuesday. But make no mistake, the risk of flash flooding will continue beyond Saturday morning as the tropical system begins to have more of an impact on our weather late in the weekend. Meanwhile, some areas across our western zones have the potential for localized flooding as result of the persistent rainfall over the next three or four days.

The tropical rain surges in from the south late Sunday into Monday.

For nearly a week, we have been watching a cluster of showers and thunderstorms in the Caribbean for signs it might develop into something more menacing.

The storm was stationary but was expected to start a generally northward movement later in the day.

How much rain we get depends on where the system ends up.

The differences between a subtropical storm and tropical storm are technical, said Fox 35 meteorologist Jayme King. Always remember, when thunder roars, head indoors!
