This is the fourth consecutive year in which at least one storm has formed before the start of hurricane season on June 1.

Alberto is sitting east of the Yucatan Peninsula with sustained winds of 40 miles per hour and is expected to move north into the Gulf of Mexico, where conditions are favorable for further development. It was moving north-northeast at 6 miles per hour, with winds of 40 miles per hour.

"Environmental conditions are forecast to steadily become more conducive for development, and a subtropical or tropical depression or storm is likely to form by Saturday over the northwestern Caribbean Sea or the southeastern Gulf of Mexico", NHC Forecaster Stacy Stewart said. It still remains an unorganized mess as it meanders off Mexico's Yucatán Peninsula but is expected to churn northward into the Gulf of Mexico and approach Florida this weekend.

"The slow movement of the storm can allow heavy rain to persist over a part of the southeast through most of next week". "Areas north and east of landfall could see 4-6" of rain from this system.

Boston quickly closed the gap in the second half and had an 11-point lead of their own within a minute of the fourth quarter. And it changed the game. "It's a slim margin, but I think Golden State, they are little better equipped to play against".

The 1 p.m. update on Subtropical Storm Alberto from the National Hurricane Center says the story is still almost stationary.

Alberto is the first named tropical weather system of the hurricane season.

Flash Flood Watches will start tomorrow, for most locations south of Highway 84.

The rain won't fall uniformly across the area, however. "There could be some possible high surf with hazardous high risk of rip currents along the beaches".

Last hurricane season - which produced the immensely destructive hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria - was exceptionally active, said Bell, who doesn't now expect this season to produce such intense activity.

The storm is forecast to come closest to South Florida late Saturday night and early Sunday morning - although it will remain well out in the Gulf of Mexico.
