Subtropical Storm Alberto forms near Cozumel”

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey has issued a State of Emergency effective at 6 a.m. Sunday for several Alabama counties in preparation for Subtropical Storm Alberto.

The National Hurricane Center is reporting Subtropical Storm Albert will move by Cuba Saturday and is predicted to start its trek toward the Gulf of Mexico coast tomorrow.

A year ago was of the most active hurricane seasons on records according to the NOAA, after Hurricane Irma destroyed parts of the Caribbean and southeastern US.

Gov. Rick Scott declared a state of emergency for Florida ahead of Subtropical Storm Alberto.

Forecast models are not yet in agreement on the storm's track and intensity, and the National Hurricane Center is averaging the models to predict a landfall somewhere between Pascagoula and Destin, Florida. Landfall is expected late Monday into Tuesday morning.

By Sunday morning, the center of Alberto will be over the Gulf of Mexico, but widespread tropical showers and thunderstorms will be over much of Florida.

"People have to be prepared regardless of predictions having to do with the number of storms". The storm had top sustained winds of 40 miles per hour (65 kph) and was expected to strengthen as it moves over the eastern Gulf of Mexico.

Because of it's poor organization and some cooler temperatures in the upper levels of the atmosphere, Alberto has been designated a subtropical storm. The tropical system became a subtropical storm Friday, the hurricane center said.
