Yesterday, the National Hurricane Center released its 2018 hurricane forecast, and they expect 2018 to be an "active season", with between 10 to 16 named storms, five to nine of which being hurricanes. Temperatures will be in the upper 90s Memorial Day weekend and will approach triple digits next week.

"Alberto is now struggling to survive strong wind shear and very dry air in the mid and upper levels now disrupting the developing convection", he explained. Winds of 40 mph extend outward up to 115 miles (185 km) from the center.
Parts of Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana have already seen heavy rain this week, and further deluges could leave those areas vulnerable to flash flooding and river flooding. "However, environmental conditions are then forecast to become more conducive for development, and a subtropical or tropical depression could form this weekend over the eastern or central Gulf of Mexico".
Saturday will start out cloudy with scattered showers, but nothing too our of the ordinary as Alberto will still be far to our south. A gradual strengthening was expected through the weekend as it moves north.
Tropical Storm Watches have been posted for Hancock, Harrison and Jackson counties in South Mississippi.
That system on Sunday and Monday likely will continue moving north and dumping heavy rains along the Gulf Coast. Alberto is projected to make landfall somewhere between the Florida Panhandle and southern Louisiana Monday morning.
The storm is forecast to bring between six and 12 inches of rain to the Northwest Florida area, and there is the possibility of 12 to 24 inches of rain in some areas, the National Weather Service in Mobile, Ala., said. Wet weather will be most likely in the late afternoon and evening.
