Forecasters at the National Weather Service in Mobile, Alabama, warned residents along coastal Alabama and MS as well as the Florida Panhandle to brace for heavy rain and high winds.

Alberto is expected to produce heavy rainfall and flooding over western Cuba, South Florida and the Florida Keys, the National Hurricane Center said Sunday.

Watches were issued for storm surges - life-threatening inundations from rising coastal waters moving inland - for a stretch of coastline between Crystal River, Florida, and the mouth of the Mississippi River. Expect rounds of heavy rain through Tuesday with widespread rain totals of 2 to 3 inches expected with locally higher amounts possible. A tropical storm watch and flash flood watch remain in effect.

In Mississippi, Gov. Phil Bryant activated the National Guard. Water could reach up to 4 feet above ground in some areas if the peak surge occurs during high tide, the agency said on Facebook. By Saturday morning, the storm was gathering strength as it moved north. Subtropical storms can develop into tropical storms, which in turn can strengthen into hurricanes.
