Default Early Tropical Storm Alberto




looking like there might be a pretty solid possibility of a storm on Sunday.

Heres a pic from windy. It's using the European model which has been fairly accurate, but it's still a bit far out.

Has been hanging over the Keys for almost two weeks now. Not much sun and lots of rain.
Unusually early start to rainy season.

Who gave it a name? As of 3 hours ago it is not yet tropical depression, let alone a named storm.

And I've seen no source that predicts it has any chance of reaching hurricane strength.

I posted this before the track and name came out. Wasn't trying to insinuate it would reach hurricane threshold. Subject edited to reflect.

Funny, I went to that site at 10:15 and the announcement that the storm had been named was not yet posted (though it is now posted and time-stamped at 10:00).

These guys are so desperate to name this storm and start the hype that they will do anything.

We had a pretty good thunderstorm here yesterday, any chance that they could name it after me????

If it snows at almost 79 degrees, it is probably nuclear fall out.

No hurricane predicted... just lots of rain and wind , and a possible 1-3 tide surge in our models for now.

It is a “sub-tropical”storm. Currently, it is not a warm-core system, but is expected to transition into a warm-core, and thus tropical, system, in the next 24-48 hours. Current guidance is pretty interesting, as Alberto is going to influenced by a number of external systems, Timing of these systems will greatly influence the track. Regardless, it will be a very effective rainmaker. The northern Gulf region (where I type this today is expecting widespread flooding due to 6-10 inches of rain. Since we got over an inch today from a system totally unrelated to Alberto, and will have another 2 or so inches of rain before this crap moves out, the storm rainfall will fall on already saturated areas and full creeks. The Magnolia may go nuts again...
