Subtropical Storm Alberto was slowly making its way toward the Florida Panhandle Monday morning, coming within 50 miles of Panama City with winds of 60 mph and expected to make landfall Monday afternoon, according to the National Hurricane Center's 11 a.m. advisory.

Alberto, the first named Atlantic storm of 2018, spun up days before the formal June 1 start of the hurricane season.

On the forecast track, the center of Alberto will move over Alabama later tonight and early Tuesday. The storm packed sustained winds of 45 miles per hour.

Flood and flash-flood watches are spread across Mississippi, Alabama and Florida, where 4 to 7 inches (10 to 18 centimeters) of rain could fall through early next week and reach into South Carolina, North Carolina and Tennessee expected to be hit by Alberto's remnants, the National Weather Service said.

"We will be dealing with the rainfall and the moisture for most of the week", Pydynowski said.

Lifeguards posted red flags along the white sands of Pensacola Beach, where swimming and wading were banned.

A tropical storm warning remains in effect for Santa Rosa and Okaloosa counties, as does a storm surge watch.

Meanwhile, potentially life-threatening rough surf and rip currents continued on the northern Gulf Coast after Alberto rolled up big waves and tides along the coast. Even the afternoon storms should be widely scattered along the trailing trough left behind by Alberto moving north through Alabama.In between showers, it's certainly not out of the question to see a little peek-a-boo sunshine.
