 DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK ---------------------- At 1000 AM CDT (1500 UTC), the center of Tropical Depression Alberto was located near latitude 38.7 North, longitude 87.4 West. The depression is moving toward the north-northeast near 17 mph (28 km/h) and this motion is expected to accelerate today.
Maximum sustained winds are near 30 mph (45 km/h) with higher gusts. The system will transition to an extratropical wave cyclone as the remnant circulation comes under the influence of an upper level trough moving across the Great Lakes and southern Canada through Thursday.
The estimated minimum central pressure is 997 mb (29.44 inches).
 HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND ---------------------- RAINFALL:  Additional rainfall of 2 to 4 inches, with isolated higher amounts, will be possible northward along the Illinois/Indiana border into the Lower Peninsula of Michigan. Flash flooding and rapid water rises on creeks and streams will remain a possibility across these areas.
WIND:  A few wind gusts may approach tropical-storm force (34 knots or 39 mph) across western and central Indiana today.
