Alberto set to make landfall in Florida on Memorial Day

SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) - Alberto is on a course for Florida. And all of its significant impacts are expected to remain east of South Mississippi.

Alberto, a subtropical storm, had maximum winds of 65 miles per hour and was moving to the northwest on Monday morning. The storm's center is expected to make a landfall on Memorial Day Monday along the Florida panhandle between Pensacola and Panama City.

Tropical-storm-force wind and four to six inches of very heavy to extreme rainfall are expected along the Florida panhandle due to Alberto. The system and its remnants will be pulled northward and inland

Meanwhile, less than one inch of rainfall is expected in South Mississippi as scattered storms and rain bands around the periphery of Alberto move through our area on Monday, Tuesday, and parts of Wednesday.
