At this hour, Subtropical Storm Alberto has maximum sustained winds of 40 mph and moving to the E at 2 mph. Regardless of whether Alberto becomes a true tropical storm by definition, very heavy rain and flooding are likely from Florida to Louisiana over the next several days.
Tropical storm watches are also in effect for parts of Mexico and Cuba.
The storm's exact path remains uncertain, and it's not expected to bring the kinds of devastating winds or storm surge that are usually the most significant concerns with tropical storms.
The next advisory will be released at 4 p.m. today.

These factors could lead to flooding.

The storm is expected to move North slowly from its location near Cuba Saturday into the Gulf of Mexico. The satellite shows that Alberto is somewhat disorganized, with all of the thunderstorm activity east of the center of circulation.
