Alberto remains below hurricane strength, but is still expected to gust into the Florida Panhandle with 40-50 miles per hour winds, which could spin up a few isolated tornadoes.

Subtropical Storm Alberto is expected to remain well west of the Triangle as it moves north from the Gulf of Mexico, but the storm is helping to steer heavy, potentially flooding rains our way. The storm could move East later in the week.

Forecasters warned heavy rain, flash flooding and risky surf posed the biggest threats as Alberto's ragged core made landfall near Laguna Beach in the Florida Panhandle.

The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch for Wake, Chatham, Nash and Johnston counties and points south through 8 a.m. Tuesday.

Rough conditions were whipping up big waves off the eastern and northern Gulf Coast, and authorities warned swimmers to stay out of the surf because of life-threatening swells and rip currents.

A storm surge watch was put into effect from Suwannee River to Navarre, Fla., indicating the possibility of life-threatening inundation of storm water.

After Alberto reached 3.25 days as a named storm, Colorado State University meteorologist Philip Klotzbach said that it is "the longest-lived Atlantic named storm forming in May since Alice in 1953".

Benzocaine is used in products to treat not just teething, but also sore throats, canker sores , and other oral irritations. The FDA said it will take legal action against companies that don't voluntarily remove their products for young children.

Steady weakening is expected after landfall, and Alberto is forecast to become a tropical depression Monday night or Tuesday. With a subtropical storm, the strongest winds and thunderstorms are located far away from the center, even though they may be just as strong as those found in a tropical storm.

Lifeguards posted red flags along the white sands of Pensacola Beach, where swimming and wading were banned amid high surf and risky conditions. The is also a very slight risk for some tornadoes Sunday, especially if we get some added heating.

Subtropical Storm Alberto is about to make Memorial Day 2018 a washout when it makes landfall.

Rainfall remains the most widespread threat from Alberto.

"If you are in an area under a storm surge watch or warning and have not heard whether or not you should evacuate, contact your local emergency management and leave today according to their instructions", Knabb said. "So how often can you say you rode a storm out?"

Rain will be heavy and steady at times as well, so flooding is the main concern. This means that tropical storm conditions (winds of 40 miles per hour sustained) are possible. Alberto will continue to bring a flood threat to the Southeast United States as it spreads moisture across the region into the middle of the week.

Heavy downpours were expected to begin lashing parts of Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama on Sunday.
