Soggy Alberto churns inland, spreading rain widely - 5/30/2018 1:15:01 AM

Memorial Day weather forecast: Warm, muggy day with an uncertain afternoon Storm Alberto strikes Gulf Coast with dangerous surf, heavy rains

The last time a named storm made landfall in this area was Tropical Storm Claudette in August 2009.

Estimates include insured losses to residential, commercial and industrial properties as well as autos, according to a statement Tuesday from the Boston-based catastrophe modeler.

Initially expected to transition to a tropical storm or hurricane, Alberto formed as a subtropical storm over the western Caribbean on May 25 and made landfall near Panama City, Florida, on May 28 with sustained winds of 45 miles per hour, KCC said.

No longer a subtropical storm, Alberto remains a threat as it moves inland, drenching the Southeast with more rain after killing at least two people.

Heavy rain bands from the remnants of Subtropical Storm Alberto continued to pummel the Upstate and beyond Tuesday night, especially in the mountains of Western North Carolina where flood warnings remained in effect until 11 p.m.

At first glance, it seems like Alberto entrained lots of dry air into the circulation over the northern Gulf of Mexico as it neared the coast Monday (remember, this was a subtropical storm with mid-latitude characteristics), and that dry slot held on the east side, setting up the odd and lopsided rain pattern today.

In its wake, the large system caused more than 25,000 power outages in Alabama on Tuesday, a day after making landfall on the Florida Panhandle. The chance of any one spot getting wet both days is about 1 in 3, and we now project highs in the low 90s. They stocked up on groceries and settled in for card games.

Journalists Mike McCormick and Aaron Smeltzer died in a freak accident today while covering weather conditions in North Carolina, in the U.S., during Storm Alberto. "So how often can you say you rode a storm out?" "It was a constant rain but not a heavy rain", Regina Myers, emergency management director in Walker County northwest of Birmingham, was quoted by The Associated Press as saying.

A subtropical storm has a less defined and cooler centre than a tropical storm, and its strongest winds are found farther from its center. There is a marginal risk for severe storms across portions of the area Wednesday.

WYFF anchor Mike McCormick and photojournalist Aaron Smeltzer died when the tree crushed their vehicle as they drove down a highway.

McCormick and Smeltzer had just interviewed Tryon Fire Chief Geoffrey Tennant as they covered storms in North Carolina.

"Ten minutes later we get the call and it was them", Tennant said at a news conference, his voice cracking. The men died instantly, their vehicle's engine still running, he said.
