A storm surge watch is in effect from Horseshoe Beach, Fla.to the mouth of the Mississippi River, according to the National Hurricane Center.

USA forecasters followed suit by issuing a tropical storm watch for parts of the Gulf Coast from the Florida Panhandle southwest of Tallahassee to the New Orleans metropolitan area. A north-northwestward to northward motion is expected Monday through Wednesday.

Parts of the Alabama and Florida coast were placed under a tropical storm warning Saturday afternoon with MS still under a watch.

Forecasters said Alberto was just west of Cuba Saturday night and was expected to move north-northwest into the Gulf of Mexico, approaching the northern Gulf coast by Monday.

The county is also under a flood watch for flooding in general low-lying areas due to heavy rainfall.

"We can not rule out the possibility of this system becoming a hurricane before it makes landfall sometime on Monday or Monday evening", according to AccuWeather meteorologist Dan Kottlowski.

As of 11 a.m. ET Saturday, parts of Cuba and the Florida Keys were under a tropical storm warning, and a tropical storm watch is in effect for parts of Florida, Georgia and Louisiana, meaning the conditions for a full storm are possible in the next 48 hours. In Cancun, local newspapers showed scenes of some streets flooded to mid-hubcap level.

In a visit to Panama City Beach yesterday, Scott said, "We have already moved some high water vehicles up to the panhandle from Fish and Wildlife". Regardless of exact landfall location, additionally strong tropical downpours are expected for much of the Gulf Coast on Memorial Day, with heavy rain causing flash flooding across much of the Gulf Coast region. The NWS said a flash flood watch would be in effect from Saturday evening through Tuesday evening for southeastern MS, much of southern Alabama, and the western Florida Panhandle.
