First tropical system of the season possible this weekend

First tropical system of the season possible this weekend

When it arrives, forecast models suggest it will spin up into at least a tropical depression and maybe even the hurricane season's first named tropical storm.

The next advisory will be released at 4 p.m. today.

Local forecasters say cloudy to overcast skies along scattered showers and thunder is expected for Grand Cayman throughout Friday, with showers becoming locally heavy at times, leading to flooding in low lying area.

For storm information specific to your area, please monitor products issued by your national meteorological service.

Locally heavy rainfall is forecast across western Cuba and over much of Florida and the northern Gulf Coast and The Southeast States, that includes all of SC, into early next week.

The immediate Tampa Bay area could experience tropical storm-force winds by Saturday morning, forecasters said, and conditions along the coast could become risky with high winds and rip currents. However, experts say those storms usually form in the Atlantic Ocean; a pre-season storm in the Gulf of Mexico is rarer.

First tropical system of the season possible this weekend

The first tropical storm of the season, Alberto, has formed near Cuba and Mexico and appears to be heading for Florida.

Forecasters from the US-based National Hurricane Center (NHC) have said there is a 90% chance tropical storm Alberto will develop the within the next five days.

Subtropical Storm Alberto remains disorganized and nearly stationary near the island of Cozumel off of Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula. Heavy rains are likely across western Cuba, much of Florida and the northern Gulf Coast into early next week.

An Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft is scheduled to investigate the low this afternoon.

A flash flood watch unrelated to Alberto has been issued for most of south Louisiana until Saturday night.

The storm is pushing a massive amount of tropical moisture into Florida, setting of a very wet Memorial Day weekend, especially Sunday and Monday. If Alberto jogs west of the forecast track, the area could see the chance of flooding rains increase.
