  • A Flood Watch continues for all of South Florida through 8 pm Sunday evening and the National Weather Service could extend it into Monday

Forecasters say heavy rains from Subtropical Storm Alberto could cause flooding across most of SC.

By late Sunday and Monday, Alberto will be far north in the Gulf, but our weather will come down to where Alberto's tail ends up. These will be influenced by the remnants of what is now Subtropical Storm Alberto, our first tropical storm of the year.

Even though South Florida is not in the projected path of Alberto, the region is on the east side - the wettest side - of the storm.

Gulf Coast residents should "take this storm seriously", the National Weather Service said early on Sunday, as Subtropical Storm Alberto drove north, threatening heavy rains and winds to the southern coastal states. Alberto's maximum sustained winds are now 65 miles per hour (100 kph) with higher gusts and the minimum central pressure reads 991 MB or 29.27 inches.

"The main concern from Alberto is flooding; not so much along the immediate coast, but inland, from the heavy rains that are coming on top of over a week of rain across the southeast", said Chuck Watson, a disaster modeler at Enki Research in Savannah, Georgia.

One of the most deadly natural disasters in USA history occurred in Florida 90 years ago. The risk for rip currents will also remain high at area beaches for several days, and water enthusiasts are encouraged to use caution or check with local authorities before entering the water.

Tropical storm warnings are in effect from the Mississippi/Alabama border all the way through to Bonita Beach, Florida.

Rick Scott issued the declaration for all 67 counties in his state. Flood warnings and other tornado warnings were issued there Sunday night. Little if any strengthening is expected before Alberto reaches the northern Gulf Coast.

We saw a few showers and storms on Saturday and we saw a drier weather day on Sunday.

The one band of storms that moved through Volusia and Flagler counties Sunday morning delivered not quite a half inch of rain at Daytona Beach International Airport and anywhere from 1.3 to 1.5 inches of rainfall in parts of Flagler County, according to Skywarn spotters there.

Although the east side of the storm isn't expected to reach Broward, Miami-Dade or Palm Beach counties, the storm's outer bands are expected to bring the area heavy rain, gusts of more than 40 miles per hour, strong rip currents and the possibility of tornadoes, according to a briefing by the National Weather Service in Miami. Meanwhile, evacuations are already underway at T. H Stone Memorial St. Joseph Peninsula State Park and officials have issued voluntary evacuations for parts of Taylor County.

In Miami, organizers called off the sea portion of the Miami Beach Air & Sea Show on Sunday because of heavy rain and rough waters.
