All eyes continue to be on the tropics Sunday with Subtropical Storm Alberto moving through the Gulf of Mexico around 15 mph towards to the north. The National Hurricane Center has Alberto making a landfall between Pensacola and Cape San Blas on the Florida Panhandle either late Monday morning or Monday afternoon.
Starting this afternoon and evening you will start to see the first outer rain bands associated with Alberto affect the Chattahoochee Valley.
These outer rain bands pose two main threats for us:
- Heavy rainfall amounts could total anywhere from 2-4″ which some higher amounts up to 6″
- Isolated spin-up tornadoes will be likely Monday and Tuesday
Let’s not forget that with Alberto shifting more eastward, our southeastern counties in the viewing area will likely see Tropical Storm force winds (39 mph) or higher as Alberto makes landfall sometime Monday morning.
