All eyes on the Tropics and Alberto; remnants could reach Miami Valley

Updated: Saturday, May 26, 2018 @ 8:30 PM

Saturday evening update on Subtropical Storm Alberto

Alberto, the first named storm of the Atlantic Ocean season, is forecast to strengthen as it continues to move over the open waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

The latest forecast from the National Hurricane Center brings the system to strong tropical storm strength before making landfall somewhere along the Louisiana to Florida coastlines Monday afternoon, Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Brett Collar said.

The forecast track then indicates the remnants of Alberto could influence the weather here on Wednesday and Thursday. The main threat for this area would be some decent rain; however, there could be a few storms as well, Collar said.

It also is important to note that your WHIO Weather App may alert you if the Miami Valley is placed within the uncertainty cone issued by the National Hurricane Center sometime this weekend. If you get that alert, it doesn’t mean to expect a tropical storm … but that there is an increased possibility of some influence of the storm.
