Subtropical Storm Alberto is organizing in the Gulf of Mexico and has started moving north. It is expected to make landfall somewhere along the coast between the Panhandle of Florida and eastern Louisiana sometime Monday night into Tuesday morning. However, the rain from Alberto will begin to fall well before the center hits shore. Rainfall amounts this week from scattered thunderstorms ahead of the storm and then from the storm itself will reach several inches in some locations, with widespread 3-4 inches likely. Today is likely to be the driest day in a lot of the region, with drier conditions returning mid-week after the storm moves north.
