Rainfall totals of between 5 and 10 inches, with up to 15 inches, are possible from eastern Louisiana to Mississippi, Alabama, western Tennessee and the western Florida panhandle, the NWS said.

Authorities say conditions are especially risky with flooding rains coming overnight and on a holiday weekend when many people have outdoor plans.

Jeffrey Medlin, meteorologist in charge in Mobile, says even after the storm moves north there will still be swells coming up from the south.

No effects from Subtropical Storm Alberto are expected for southeast Louisiana.

Subtropical Storm Alberto was disrupting plans for Memorial Day barbecues and beach outings in Alabama, Florida and MS, as the storm continued churning north through the Gulf of Mexico on Sunday. Gradual strengthening is forecast until the system reaches the northern Gulf Coast.

Florida Governor Rick Scott declared a state of emergency Saturday as the state readied to face the wrath of Subtropical Storm Alberto.

Meteorologists expect a turn toward the north-northwest at a slower speed into Sunday.

Watches were issued for storm surges - life-threatening inundations from rising coastal waters moving inland - for a stretch of coastline between Crystal River, Florida, and the mouth of the Mississippi River. As it travels up the warm waters of the Gulf, it could well become a full tropical storm. The New Orleans area could see some scattered rain over the next two days, but rain amounts look like an inch or less.

Alberto may strengthen slightly in the next several hours, but it looks like it has run out of time to transition to a fully tropical storm before it makes landfall around noon Monday on the Florida panhandle.

Rain bands are rotating into South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, and Florida this afternoon with tropical storm force wind gusts being experienced across parts of Florida as Alberto moves to the northwest at 10 miles per hour.
