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.

The moisture pouring northward coincides with Subtropical Storm Alberto, which approached the Florida Panhandle from the Gulf on Monday morning with sustained winds of up to 65 miles per hour.

Locally, the highest winds were reported at New Smyrna Beach Municipal Airport, with 35 mph wind gusts for several hours and sustained winds of 20-21 mph.

Not just that, but he also connected on 17-of-33 shots from the floor, 5-of-7 from deep, and 7-of-11 from the free-throw stripe. He's now shooting a dismal 23.9 percent from the field and 26.9 percent from long distance through six games this series.

A storm surge watch was put into effect from Crystal River to the Navarre, Fla., indicating the possibility of life-threatening inundation of storm water.

Memorial Day, the US-equivalent to today's UK's Bank Holiday Monday, is known as the unofficial start to the summer, but forecasters say Storm Alberto is a sign of an active hurricane season.

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.

The National Weather Service (NWS) said Sunday that tropical storm warnings cover the entire Florida Gulf Coast and inland portions of the Florida Panhandle as well as parts of coastal Alabama.

The Sikkim health department has issued an advisory urging the people of the state to take precaution against Nipah virus. The latest victim was identified as 26-year-old Ebin, who was admitted at a private hospital in Kozhikode with infection.

Governors in Alabama and MS also declared states of emergency on Saturday. Bands of dry air wrapped up with the storm spared Central Florida much of the feared rainfall that had triggered a flood watch, and the watch was discontinued Sunday afternoon. Tropical-storm force winds will be possible in western Cuba and in the Gulf coast area where warnings are posted.

On the forecast track, the center of Alberto will move over the northern Gulf of Mexico Sunday night and approach the northern Gulf Coast in the warning area on Monday.

Strong to severe storms will also be possible embedded in the rain on Sunday.

In the Baltimore suburb of Ellicott City, a massive storm caused flash flooding on Sunday that swept through its historic Main Street area, local news video showed. "A secondary concern is that even relatively minimal tropical storm winds can topple trees due to saturated soils and water-heavy limbs". Heavy rains are also expected in many areas, with some locations seeing between up to a foot of rain across the Florida panhandle into Alabama.
