 DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK ---------------------- At 400 PM CDT (2100 UTC), the center of Tropical Depression Alberto was located near latitude 40.5 North, longitude 86.4 West. The depression is moving toward the north-northeast near 23 mph (37 km/h) and this motion is expected to gradually increase overnight.
Maximum sustained winds are near 30 mph (45 km/h) with higher gusts. Little change in strength is forecast during the next 36 hours. The system will transition to an extratropical wave cyclone as the remnant circulation encounters an upper level trough moving east across the Great Lakes through Thursday.
The estimated minimum central pressure is 998 mb (29.47 inches).
 HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND ---------------------- RAINFALL:  Additional rainfall of 1 to 3 inches, with isolated higher amounts, will be possible northward along the track of Alberto into the Lower Peninsula of Michigan. Isolated to scattered flash flooding will remain a possibility across this area.
WIND:  A few wind gusts may approach tropical-storm force (34 knots or 39 mph) from central and northern Indiana into Lower Michigan into this evening.
