The Storm Surge Watch south of Suwannee River has been discontinued.
A Storm Surge Watch is in effect for... * Suwannee River to Navarre Florida
A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for... * Suwannee River to the Mississippi/Alabama border
A Storm Surge Watch means there is a possibility of life- threatening inundation, from rising water moving inland from the coastline, in the indicated locations. For a depiction of areas at risk, please see the National Weather Service Storm Surge Watch/Warning Graphic, available at
A Tropical Storm Warning means that tropical storm conditions are expected somewhere within the warning area.
For storm information specific to your area, including possible inland watches and warnings, please monitor products issued by your local National Weather Service forecast office.
 DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK ---------------------- At 400 AM CDT (0900 UTC), the center of Subtropical Storm Alberto was located near latitude 28.6 North, longitude 86.2 West.  The storm has slowed down recently, but a longer-term motion is to the northwest near 7 mph (11 km/h).  A faster north-northwestward to northward motion is expected during the next few days.  On the forecast track, the center of Alberto will cross the northern Gulf Coast in the warning area this afternoon or evening.  The weakening system is forecast to move well inland into the Tennessee Valley on Tuesday and into the Ohio Valley and Great Lakes region on Wednesday and Thursday.
Maximum sustained winds remain near 65 mph (100 km/h) with higher gusts.  Little change in strength is expected before Alberto reaches the northern Gulf Coast later today.  Steady weakening is forecast after landfall, and Alberto will likely become a subtropical depression tonight or early Tuesday and degenerate into a remnant low by Tuesday afternoon.
Winds of 40 mph extend outward up to 105 miles (165 km) from the center.
The estimated minimum central pressure is 990 mb (29.24 inches).
 HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND ---------------------- RAINFALL:  Alberto is expected to produce the following rain accumulations through Tuesday:
Central Cuba...Additional 5 to 10 inches, isolated storm-totals of 20 to 25 inches.
The Florida panhandle into much of Alabama and western Georgia...4 to 8 inches, isolated 12 inches.
The Florida Keys and Florida peninsula...Additional 1 to 4 inches, isolated 10 inches.
Rest of the Southeast and Tennessee Valley into the lower mid Atlantic from Tennessee east through the Carolinas...2 to 6 inches.
Rains in Cuba could produce life-threatening flash floods and mudslides.  Flooding and flash flooding are possible in the southeast United States, including Florida.
WIND:  Tropical storm conditions will spread across the warning area throughout the day.
STORM SURGE:  The combination of storm surge and the tide will cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by rising waters moving inland from the shoreline.  The water could reach the following heights above ground somewhere in the indicated areas if the peak surge occurs at the time of high tide...
Suwannee River to Navarre Florida...2 to 4 ft
The deepest water will occur along the immediate coast. Surge- related flooding depends on the relative timing of the surge and the tidal cycle, and can vary greatly over short distances.  For information specific to your area, please see products issued by your local National Weather Service forecast office.
TORNADOES:  A couple of brief tornadoes are possible today from northern Florida into central and southern Georgia, southern South Carolina, and southeastern Alabama.
SURF:  Swells generated by Alberto will continue to affect the eastern and northern Gulf Coast through Tuesday.  These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions. For more information, consult products from your local weather office.
 NEXT ADVISORY ------------- Next intermediate advisory at 700 AM CDT. Next complete advisory at 1000 AM CDT.
