Rain falls on Clearwater Beach by Pier 60 early Sunday morning May 27, as northbound Subtropical Storm Alberto looms in the gulf to the southwest.

The center is located 85 miles west-northwest of the Dry Torgutas in Florida.

On Monday, Alberto was off the coast of Florida, moving north towards Tennessee.

Tropical Storm warnings have has been posted for parts of the northern Gulf Coast and some coastal waters along the western side of FL.

The center said a tropical storm warning is in effect from the Suwannee River in Florida to the Mississippi-Alabama state line.

On Friday, Exxon Mobil Corp. pulled non-essential personnel from its Lena oil production platform and Royal Dutch Shell Plc shut in its Ram Powell hub, but most other energy companies are leaving offshore crews in place while they watch 2018's first Atlantic storm.

The system is expected to slowly intensify today and Memorial Day and will likely consolidate into a tropical storm at some point before making landfall.

A flash flood watch will be in effect for Myrtle Beach and surrounding areas starting Sunday night into Monday afternoon, according to the National Weather Service in Wilmington, North Carolina.




Kennedy said it will be mainly dry Monday morning with more typical afternoon showers and thunderstorms developing.

Florida, Mississippi and Alabama have all declared states of emergency as Subtropical Storm Alberto bears down.

As Alberto remnants spin out across the Commonwealth Tuesday and Wednesday, expect rounds of heavy rain and even strong storms to impact the state. An additional 4 to 8 inches of rain could fall in some spots between Sunday and Tuesday.

Additionally, the area is under a flash flood watch, a high surf warning and a rip current warning.

"The primary effects we will see from this storm in west central and southwest Florida will be heavy rainfall, isolated thunderstorms, gusty winds, and risky marine conditions", the weather service forecast said.

He added there could also be as much as $600million in lost holiday spending as the storm disrupted long holiday weekend plans.

"If you are planning to travel on Monday (Memorial Day) the combination of severe weather and heavy traffic conditions could prove hazardous".

There also is a potential for storms and rain throughout the rest of the week, Corless said.
