I am watching the rain shield from Subtropical Storm Alberto move through the Southeast this Sunday afternoon. Some of you are already getting wet from the bands of precipitation around the storm, especially on the east side (as usually happens). Others will see it start later today or tonight, and the rain will get worse Monday through Tuesday as the storm makes landfall and moves north, most likely through Alabama. If you want to know more about the details of the storm forecast, you can watch the NWS briefing on the storm from the Peachtree City office at https://youtu.be/XrgjESnnbyY.

The storm has been called a “subtropical” storm rather than a tropical storm. If you don’t know what that means, you might be interested in this article from UGA’s Dr. Marshall Shepherd in Forbes.com here.
