Subtropical Depression Alberto Could Bring Big Rain Totals To W. Pa.

These are the areas that have picked up the most rain over the past 72 hours and will be most susceptible to flooding.

Forecasters are warning residents in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and Alabama of life-threatening surfing conditions and possible tornadoes.

The Storm Prediction Center outlines a low-end, "marginal" risk of severe storms in the region Tuesday because of Alberto's remnants; the primary threat would be a brief tornado developing within the tropical rain bands. We will also see cooler temperatures as we head into the beginning June.

Lifeguards posted red flags along the white sands of Pensacola Beach, where swimming and wading were banned amid high surf and risky conditions.

Subtropical Storm Alberto weakened slightly as it neared Florida's Panhandle, where it should come ashore Monday to spread heavy rains across the southern USA, potentially causing more than $1 billion in economic losses.

The storm formed and was named a subtropical storm on Saturday.

Elsewhere, officials in Howard County in Maryland said a 39-year-old man was missing after flash flooding from a separate storm tore through the historic downtown of Ellicott City on Sunday. Warnings about storm surges and high surf were aired along the coast on either side of Apalachicola on Monday.

Some tourists said the rainy weather would not dampen their vacations.

Yet those in Tampa Bay breathed a sigh of relief Monday as the storms changes allowed many Memorial Day celebrations to continue as planned.

"It personally affected me a little bit because I had done an interview with Mr McCormick about ten minutes before we got the call, and we had talked a little bit about how he wanted us to stay safe and how we wanted him to stay safe", Mr Tennant told reporters. "So how often can you say you rode a storm out?"

Rhumes said her group prepared for the storm by stocking up on groceries. Showers and storms were already in the western part of the state early this morning, and will become more widespread across our area by late morning/early afternoon. Weekend overall looks dry, with only an isolated storm chance for Sunday.

Another concern tonight is the developing southeast wind, probably between 20 and 30 miles per hour over Lakes Erie, St. Clair and Huron which, combined with the already well above average water levels, will push big waves onto the shore and potentially cause damage and flooding.
