The Florida Panhandle is going to be battered by Subtropical Storm Alberto when it makes landfall on Monday afternoon or evening, according to the Weather Channel.

A CNN image released on May 26, 2018, shows where Subtropical Storm Alberto is likely to make landfall on Monday between New Orleans and Destin, Florida, before moving into MS and Alabama by Tuesday.

On Wednesday night, the lower house of Congress rushed through a bill to eliminate a tax on diesel through the end of the year. The company said the measure would last for 15 days and give the government time to negotiate an end to the strike.

That's why forecasters rapidly upped the storm's chance for development last week and concern grew for a totally washed out holiday weekend.

The Atlantic hurricane season doesn't officially start until June 1, but Storm Alberto has already thrown the three-day weekend in Florida into chaos. Subtropical storms can develop into tropical storms, which in turn can strengthen into hurricanes. On average, the Columbia area receives almost 45 inches of rain annually.

Ahead of the storm, Florida, Mississippi, and Alabama declared states of emergency in preparation for the worst.

After that, it will bring powerful winds and heavy rains as it moves into the Tennessee Valley on Tuesday and Wednesday, the hurricane centre said.

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

Tracey Gasper and her 6-year-old son, Chase, traveled to Biloxi Beach from Donaldsonville, Louisiana, for a day of fun in the sun with a group of friends from Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

The latter will have the better chance of seeing water rise as at that time we will have a more on shore wind component. The weather service cautioned, though, that the storm is several days away and there remains a great deal of uncertainty about how it will affect the Northeast.
