Heavy Rain Possible, Breezy For Memorial Day

Heavy Rain Possible, Breezy For Memorial Day

The storm's top winds fell to 60 mph and it's expected to weaken further after it moves over land, gradually falling apart over the next 36 hours until it's completely swallowed up by another weather system over Canada late this week.

Alberto had picked up strength as it headed north through the Gulf of Mexico, bringing with it the warning of life-threatening inundation, said the Miami-based hurricane centre. That was because the wind field east of the storms center was so wide, Austin said. Mid to upper 80's are possible by Friday with just a few showers and storms around.

Areas from Crystal River to Navarre could experience 2 feet to 4 feet of storm surge that will cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by rising waters from the shoreline.

States of emergency were declared in Florida, Alabama and MS on Saturday as upwards of 15 inches of rain is forecast for the national Memorial Day weekend holiday.

The storm is producing winds and rains over southern Florida early Sunday.

Subtropical Storm Alberto was moving northward through the Gulf of Mexico on Sunday. Lifeguards posted red flags along the white sands of Pensacola Beach, where swimming and wading were banned due to high surf and unsafe conditions.

The Cavaliers will open the NBA Finals on Thursday on the road against either the Golden State Warriors or Houston Rockets. James led the Cavaliers in the first half with 17 points and 10 rebounds but they trailed for much of the half.

On Sunday, gusty showers began lashing parts of Florida, and authorities were warning of the possibility of flash flooding.

The center said a tropical storm warning is in effect from the Suwannee River in Florida to the Mississippi-Alabama state line. High tides will occur this afternoon and very early Monday morning.

There also is a potential for storms and rain throughout the rest of the week, Corless said. Warnings about storm surges and high surf were aired along the coast on either side of Apalachicola on Monday.

Some tourists said the rainy weather would not dampen their vacations.

The Storm Prediction Center outlines a low-end, "marginal" risk of severe storms in the region Tuesday because of Alberto's remnants; the primary threat would be a brief tornado developing within the tropical rain bands.

Rhumes said her group prepared for the storm by stocking up on groceries. "It's not going to be widespread rainfall", Doody said. "We'll hang out and see how it goes". Grant Brown, the city's public information officer, said they had already finished a number of preparations such as clearing culverts to prepare for big rains but Sunday had turned into a "really nice day". Onshore areas along the coast also account for about 45 percent of USA refining capacity and 51 percent of gas processing.
