Sebastian, Vero Beach to get minimal impact from Tropical Storm Alberto

  • Tropical depression formation expected Saturday

The Government of Mexico has issued a Tropical Storm Watch for the east coast of the Yucatan Peninsula from Tulum to Cabo Catoche.

Alberto marks the first named storm of the 2018 Atlantic season. Possibly tropical-storm-force wind depending on system's track. So the odds of the system ever becoming a hurricane appear low.

It will continue to move north going into Sunday and Monday and will dump heavy rain all along the coast.

Thursday's tropical weather outlook shows an area of interest over the Yucatán Peninsula. The storm is moving slowly - about 2 miles per hour - and is expected to bring erractic rain to the north.

The City of Tallahassee and Leon County are also opening up sandbag locations ahead of this weekend's inclement weather.

Overnight, a series of computer models are now split as to where the system will make landfall.

Tropical depression formation expected Saturday

If that were to happen it would put Alabama on the east side and more likely to get heavy rain.

The South Florida Water Management District said they have prepared their massive flood control system to protect residents over the next five to seven days. However the rain could begin by Saturday evening, forecasters said. A ridge of high pressure will build in from the southwest, producing the hottest weather of the year so far.

Forecasters have noted that the flash flood watch may need to be expanded northward later. We will likely see an elevated risk of rip currents along the Atlantic coast as well as hazardous marine conditions. Through the weekend and into next week we are watching the potential of a surge of tropical moisture into the state that will bring a washout to beach goers for Memorial Day weekend plans. Those currents can sweep swimmers out to sea. The National Hurricane Center said water could reach two to four feet above land in those areas. Wind gusts and rough seas are also expected to increase on Saturday, with possible tornadoes over the weekend.

Alberto is forecast to gain speed this weekend and track to the northeast on Saturday before turning back northwest on Sunday.

Even when it's not raining, it's going to "feel thick, heavy, humid and generally uncomfortable", wrote Angela Enyedi, a meteorologist with the Weather Service office in Jacksonville in a Friday afternoon forecast update.
