Alberto will move north-northwestward towards the western Florida
panhandle overnight and is forecast to move into the western Florida
panhandle Monday afternoon. Alberto then continues northward into
central Alabama through Monday night. There remains some uncertainty
on the eventual track so residents in the western Florida panhandle
should closely monitor the progress of the storm. Alberto will have
the potential to bring significant rainfall amounts and flash flooding
to the region, especially across the western Florida panhandle and
much of southwest and south central Alabama. Tropical storm force
winds will likely impact coastal portions of Alabama and the western
Florida panhandle later tonight into Monday. Tropical storm force winds
will also likely impact some portions of south central Alabama mainly
on Monday. Storm surge inundation of 1 to 3 feet is possible mainly
later tonight into Monday. Isolated tornadoes will also be possible
particularly across south central Alabama and the western Florida
panhandle later tonight into Monday night.


Protect against dangerous rainfall flooding having possible
significant impacts mainly across southwest and south central Alabama
and the western Florida panhandle. Potential impacts include:
- Moderate rainfall flooding may prompt several evacuations and
- Rivers and tributaries may quickly become swollen with swifter
currents and overspill their banks in a few places, especially
in usually vulnerable spots. Small streams, creeks, canals, and
ditches overflow.
- Flood waters can enter some structures or weaken foundations.
Several places may experience expanded areas of rapid
inundation at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage
areas. Some streets and parking lots take on moving water as
storm drains and retention ponds overflow. Driving conditions
become hazardous. Some road and bridge closures.

Protect against locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible
limited impacts across southeast Mississippi.

Protect against hazardous wind having possible limited impacts across
portions of southwest Alabama...northwest Florida...south central
Alabama...and inland southeast Mississippi.. Potential impacts
- Damage to porches, awnings, carports, sheds, and unanchored
mobile homes. Unsecured lightweight objects blown about.
- Many large tree limbs broken off. A few trees snapped or
uprooted, but with greater numbers in places where trees are
shallow rooted. Some fences and roadway signs blown over.
- A few roads impassable from debris, particularly within urban
or heavily wooded places. Hazardous driving conditions on
bridges and other elevated roadways.
- Scattered power and communications outages.

Protect against life-threatening surge having possible significant
impacts east of Navarre in the western Florida panhandle. Potential
impacts in this area include:
- Areas of inundation with storm surge flooding accentuated by
waves. Damage to several buildings, mainly near the coast.
- Sections of near-shore escape routes and secondary roads become
weakened or washed out, especially in usually vulnerable low
- Major beach erosion with heavy surf breaching dunes. Strong and
numerous rip currents.
- Moderate damage to marinas, docks, boardwalks, and piers.
Several small craft broken away from moorings, especially in
unprotected anchorages.

Also, protect against locally hazardous surge having possible limited
impacts west of Navarre, Florida including coastal Alabama.

Elsewhere across portions of southwest Alabama...northwest
Florida...south central Alabama...and inland southeast Mississippi.,
little to no impact is anticipated.

Protect against a tornado event having possible limited impacts
across some portions of south central Alabama and the western Florida
panhandle. Potential impacts include:
- The occurrence of isolated tornadoes can hinder the execution
of emergency plans during tropical events.
- A few places may experience tornado damage, along with power
and communications disruptions.
- Locations could realize roofs peeled off buildings, chimneys
toppled, mobile homes pushed off foundations or overturned,
large tree tops and branches snapped off, shallow-rooted trees
knocked over, moving vehicles blown off roads, and small boats
pulled from moorings.

Elsewhere across portions of southwest Alabama...northwest
Florida...south central Alabama...and inland southeast Mississippi.,
little to no impact is anticipated.


Listen to local official for recommended preparedness actions,
including possible evacuation. If ordered to evacuate, do so

If you are a visitor, be sure to know the name of the city or town in
which you are staying and the name of the county or parish in which it
resides. Listen for these locations in local news updates. Pay
attention for instructions from local authorities.

Storm surge is the leading killer associated with tropical storms and
hurricanes! Make sure you are in a safe area away from the surge
zone. Even if you are not in a surge-prone area, you could find
yourself cutoff by flood waters during and after the storm. Heed
evacuation orders issued by the local authorities.

Rapidly rising flood waters are deadly. If you are in a flood-prone
area, consider moving to higher ground. Never drive through a flooded
roadway. Remember, turn around don't drown!

Closely monitor, NOAA Weather radio or local news outlets
for official storm information. Be ready to adapt to possible changes
to the forecast. Ensure you have multiple ways to receive weather
