A summery Memorial Day, watch your local Storm Team forecast

Remnants of Subtropical Storm Alberto could reach Upstate NY this week

Alberto is expected to drop 4 to 6 inches of rain along the Gulf Coast, with some places getting as much as a foot.

The US states of Alabama, Florida and MS have declared an emergency ahead of subtropical storm Alberto expected to make landfall on Monday, authorities said.

All 67 Florida counties were issued the emergency notice to give state and local governments enough time and resources to prepare, Florida Governor Rick Scott said in a statement. In addition, Ivey called upon the Alabama National Guard's High Water Evacuation Team to support the southern parts of the state.

Forecasters said Alberto could bring life-threatening high water to southern coastal states when it slams an area from MS to western Georgia with up to 12 inches (30 cm) of rain and possible tornadoes.

Continuing on its northward trajectory, Alberto could hit the Florida panhandle Sunday evening or Monday morning, according to AccuWeather.

A two- to four-foot storm surge or rise in water is still expected along the coast to the right/east of where Alberto makes landfall.

Although Alberto is not expected to make landfall on the US Gulf Coast until 00:00 GMT on Tuesday, heavy rains are expected to start across the region today and continue for several days. Rainfall totals of between 5 and 10 inches, with up to 15 inches, are possible from eastern Louisiana to Mississippi, Alabama, western Tennessee and the western Florida panhandle, the NWS said.

The National Weather Service said rains in Cuba could produce life-threatening flash floods and mudslides. And in the Tampa Bay area on the central Gulf Coast, cities offered sandbags for homeowners anxious about floods.

New Orleans urged residents and businesses to "get prepared and stay informed" about the storm. The main threat is from heavy rain that could lead to flooding, the city said, but also high winds and storm surge could cause problems.

The storm is the first storm of this year's hurricane season, coming a few day before the season officially starts on June 1.

Satellite photos (above) show the center of the storm just offshore of the Florida Panhandle, and the very obvious moisture feed from tropics - the tail - extending in a comma shape just offshore of the peninsula and continuing south.

As of 7 a.m., subtropical storm Alberto was about 100 miles south-southeast of Destin, according to the National Hurricane Center.

MIAMI (AP) - U.S. government forecasters are expecting an active Atlantic hurricane season.
