Looks like .5 at the homestead so far today. Great drive to Jax. All backroads after the initial spurt up the tollway.

Hello Alberto. Looks like Gomey's in the wet zone for now.

Hey Aug, I think those loopty loops are scenarios based on the ridge building west and possibly above the system - shoving it back around and south into the gulf.

That may be quite possible. We shall see in the coming days.

...FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 2 PM EDT THIS AFTERNOON
THROUGH MONDAY EVENING...

The Flood Watch continues for

* Portions of central Florida, northern Florida, south central
Florida, southwest Florida, and west central Florida,
including the following areas, in central Florida, Hardee,
Polk, and Sumter. In northern Florida, Coastal Levy and Inland
Levy. In south central Florida, DeSoto and Highlands. In

Charlotte, and Inland Lee. In west central Florida, Coastal
Citrus, Coastal Hernando, Coastal Hillsborough, Coastal
Manatee, Coastal Pasco, Coastal Sarasota, Inland Citrus,
Inland Hernando, Inland Hillsborough, Inland Manatee, Inland
Pasco, Inland Sarasota, and Pinellas.

* From 2 PM EDT this afternoon through Monday evening

* Abundant tropical moisture streaming over the area on the east
side of Subtropical Storm Alberto is expected to produce heavy
rain today through Monday. Widespread rainfall amounts of 3 to
5 inches with locally higher amounts will be possible over the
watch area through the period.

* The heavy rainfall will have the potential to cause flooding
of low-lying and poor drainage areas. Flooding will also
affect roadways, rivers, creeks, and smaller streams. Remember
to not drive across flooded roadways. Turn around. Don`t
drown. Residents living in flood prone areas as well as along
rivers and faster flowing streams should keep alert to any
rapid rises in water levels and be ready to move to higher
ground if flooding is observed.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
Flood Warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.

NWS Tampa... Sat May 26 2018

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for West Central And Southwest
Florida.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

...THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
Showers and thunderstorms will spread across the area today as
Subtropical Storm Alberto moves north into the southern Gulf of
Mexico. Thunderstorms that develop will be capable of producing
strong gusty winds, locally heavy rains, and frequent deadly
lightning strikes.

...FLOOD IMPACT...
Widespread rain is expected today on top of already saturated
ground. The heavy rain will produce flooding of low lying and
poor drainage areas as well as the ponding of water on roadways.
Motorists should exercise caution.

...RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
Breezy winds and high surf over the Gulf waters will produce an
increased risk of rip currents along area beaches beginning this
afternoon.

...MARINE IMPACTS...
Southeast winds will continue to increase across the Gulf waters
today and tonight, with wind speeds of 20 to 30 knots and seas
building to 10 feet. This will create hazardous boating
conditions for small craft operators.

NWS Miami..........
...FL Keys to southwest FL...
Although the forecast track of Alberto keeps the center well
southwest/west of here, the relatively expansive low-level wind
fields characteristic of a subtropical system will enlarge
hodographs across the outlook area as the cyclone translates
northward over the eastern Gulf, per NHC guidance. Coverage/number
of relatively discrete cells in this environment is uncertain, but
the moist/low-LCL thermodynamic profiles, juxtaposed on
strengthening low-level shear over the region with time, suggest at
least a marginal/conditional supercellular tornado risk remains
warranted -- primarily for the latter half of the period.

Due to the threat of heavy rain and potential flooding, Gov. Rick Scott has declared a state of emergency in all 67 Florida counties.

“As we continue to monitor Subtropical Storm Alberto’s northward path toward Florida, it is critically important that all Florida counties have every available resource to keep families safe and prepare for the torrential rain and severe flooding this storm will bring. Today, I have declared a state of emergency in all 67 Florida counties to make sure that our state and local governments are able to coordinate with federal partners to get the resources they need," Scott said.

Hiya peeps!  

I was watching the recon data earlier and that new center is quite a bit further north, however, it is also just a teeny bit further west.  Today has ended up being pretty decent here... Lots of clouds and the sprinkles started while I was out grocery shopping.  Nothing to really speak of, just sprinkles.   Smile

Levi put out another vid this afternoon.....

Another great Levi update. The young man has a sharp mind.

Very pleasant day up here. Not a hint of rain, comfortable temps, and a nice breeze. Per Levi's vid and some NWS discussions, there's going to be a dry slot somewhere tempering rain for a spell. WPC is also now going lower in their overall QPF for parts of the peninsula.
