The center of the storm was located about 110 miles southeast of Cozumel, Mexico, and 180 miles south-southwest of the western tip of Cuba as of the National Hurricane Center's 11 p.m. EDT update. As the storm comes north, the strongest winds will be on the right side of the center (eye) of the storm and that's likely to move in around Mobile to Pensacola.

The western Caribbean Sea and eastern Gulf of Mexico are often the areas where any early tropical activity fires up, so Alberto isn't unusual in that regard.

Should the weather pattern become a full-fledged storm, with winds of at least 39 miles per hour, it would be named Tropical Storm Alberto.

The hurricane season for the Atlantic officially begins June 1 and runs through November 30.

"However, once over water, it should develop into an organised tropical or subtropical storm system during the weekend".

At the meeting, Gov. Scott urged Floridians to watch the weather closely and make a plan.

Heavy rain, flooding expected in South Florida over Memorial Day Weekend
Forecasters fear the front has an 80 percent chance of deteriorating into a subtropical or tropical depression this weekend. Memorial Day Weekend in North Alabama: Expect a good covering of heavy downpours on Friday: especially south of Huntsville.

The storm will approach the north-central Gulf Coast on Monday.

An Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft is scheduled to investigate the low this afternoon, per NHC.

Because of this, the South Shore, Coastal Mississippi, St. Tammany Parish and Southern Tangipahoa Parish are under a flash flood watch. Presently, the main impacts appear to be heavy rainfall and possible flooding. If Alberto jogs west of the forecast track, the area could see the chance of flooding rains increase.

The storm, while projected to bring heavy rainfall and flooding to areas in Florida and some Gulf Coast states both this weekend and into early next week, will not become a hurricane, according to NOAA. Additionally, as the wind field strengthens and expands around the system, our winds will increase and there is a threat of some thunderstorm wind damage with sporadic power outages especially Saturday night and Sunday.

The system sits east of the Yucatan Peninsula but moving northward.

Their latest outlook has Central Georgia receiving 5-7 inches of rain.
