"In addition, the threat of rip currents will steadily increase along the Gulf Coast from Florida westward to Louisiana over the Memorial Day weekend".

In Volusia and Flagler counties, the wet blanket over Memorial Day weekend activities is forecast to bring up to four inches of rain through Wednesday, although even more rainfall is possible in some locations.

Rules against parking on neutral grounds in the city will be suspended starting at 7 a.m. Saturday so that vehicles can be moved to higher ground, Cantrell announced Friday evening. The subtropical storm will move into the Gulf of Mexico today. The highest winds are also now away from the center.

Advisories and watches related to Alberto include a Tropical Storm Watch for coastal and offshore waters near Franklin County, and then for the coastline from Indian Pass west through the Emerald Coast and beyond. A Storm Surge Watch also is in effect from Horseshoe Beach, Florida, to the Mississippi River. The weather service noted that heavy rainfall will have the potential to cause flooding of low-lying and poor drainage areas.

But now that he is here is Luna going to want to return her big brother? She had said: "I'm having a baby boy in the spring". Chrissy announced back in November that she and John were expecting baby number 2 and that they knew he would be a boy.

Conditions are favorable for Alberto to develop into a tropical storm since shearing winds are expected to ease by Sunday, which would concentrate thunderstorms closer to Alberto's low-pressure circulation and warm its core.

The hurricane center said up to 12 inches of rain was possible across the Florida Keys and southern and southwestern Florida.

Forecasters say chances are increasing for the first tropical weather system of the year in the Gulf of Mexico. Officials tweeted that there are expected wind gusts of 30 miles per hour and those are expected to increase Saturday night and persist through Sunday. Winds will become gustier tomorrow, and some funnel clouds and isolated tornadoes are possible in the stronger squalls.

There were 79 reports of severe weather in the country on Friday, with the majority of the reports coming from the central United States. Hail up to the size of baseballs and softballs were also reported in central Texas. The risk will be highest on Saturday.
