Subtropical storm Alberto continues to move into the northern Gulf of Mexico.

The storm was expected to weaken after it makes landfall later Monday.

"On the forecast track, the center of Alberto will cross the northern Gulf Coast in the warning area [Monday] afternoon or evening", the NHC said.

In late May 2016, Tropical Storm Bonnie hit parts of the Southeastern United States and the Bahamas, costing more than $640,000 in damage and causing two deaths.

Waters off the eastern and northern Gulf Coast are expected to be rough through Tuesday.

Temperatures will reach highs near 87 inland, with mid-80s at the beaches. On the current path it will make landfall as a subtropical torm. somewhere across the western Florida Panhandle.

Subtropical Storm Alberto weakened slightly as it neared Florida's Panhandle, where it should come ashore Monday to spread heavy rains across the southern USA, potentially causing more than $1 billion in economic losses.

A tropical storm warning is in effect for Anclote River to the Mississipi-Alabama border, according to NWS. "Hazardous storm surge is possible along portions of the central and eastern Gulf Coast beginning Sunday".

Rick Scott (R) also declared a state of emergency in all of the state's 67 counties on Saturday.

In Taylor County, there were voluntary evacuations for those in coastal zones and beach communities, mobile homes, RV parks and low-lying areas.

Heavy downpours are expected to begin lashing parts of those states on Sunday. Some periods of heavy rain are possible.
