Subtropical Storm Alberto to impact middle Tennessee
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Subtropical Storm Alberto will soon make landfall with the remnants headed for middle Tennessee.
Alberto will make landfall as a subtropical storm on Monday likely along the Florida Panhandle to roughly Gulf Shores, Alabama, according to FOX 17 News Meteorologist Colleen Mehlberg. This system will push its way north through Alabama to Tennessee.
Rain from Alberto will impact middle Tennessee mainly Tuesday and Wednesday. Mehlberg says based on the current path of the storm, areas west of I-65 will likely see 2-3” or rain with areas east of I-65 1-2”. Locally higher amounts will be possible. If the path of Alberto changes in the next 48 hours, there will be some adjustments.
The Storm Prediction Center has areas east of I-65 in a marginal risk for severe storms on Tuesday. This is a level 1 out of 5 on the severe index. The main threat will be training showers/storms that could lead to some localized flooding.
As with most tropical systems, a spin-up tornado cannot be ruled out. Winds may be a bit gusty at times potentially with wind gusts up to 35 MPH.
