Tropical Storm Alberto Update - Will Cross Florida on Tuesday with Possible Hurricane Force Winds and Tornados

Alberto Path

The National Weather Service has issued a tropical storm and hurricane warning for the Gulf Coast of Florida.  Governor, Jeb Bush, signed a declaration of emergency allowing him to call up the National Guard and enforce laws against price gouging.

Alberto is the first named tropical storm of the season. The storm winds are expected to reach hurricane strength within the next 24 hours.  Governor Bush said “We're talking about powerful forces of nature, people need to take this very seriously.''

This is what we have up to 8PM ET Monday.  The hurricane warning remains in effect for the Florida Gulf coast from Longboat Key to the Ochlockonee River.  A tropical storm warning is in effect for the Gulf Coast south of Longboat Key to Englewood, and west of Ochlockonee River to Indian Pass. 


There has also been a tropical storm warning for the Atlantic coast from Flagler Beach Northward to the Savannah River, at the Georgia / South Carolina border.  The tropical storm watch from South of Englewood to Bonita Beach has been discontinued. 

The Center of the storm was located about 145 miles southwest of Cedar Key Florida and is traveling Northeast at about 10 MPH (4PM CDT).  The center of the storm could reach the Florida coast early Tuesday.  The weather service says that conditions are already deteriorating in the warning area. 


The maximum sustained winds are nearing 70 mph.  There are higher gusts and Alberto can become a hurricane before landfall.  It is expected to drop 4 to 8 inches of rain in most places with some areas receiving as much as 10 inches.  Alberto is expected to cross Florida on Tuesday. 

A warning means you can expect the specified conditions within the next 24 hours.  A watch means you can expect the conditions within the next 36 hours. The weather service says there is a possibility of tornados across central and northern Florida.
