Tropical Storm Alberto has begun to steer more eastward Monday afternoon insuring this system will have little or no further impact to the U.S. other than some elevated tides across the Mid-Atlantic States through mid-week.
Alberto, a small compact storm, sporting 40mph winds was located about 180 miles south-southeast of Charleston, S.C. Monday afternoon. This system was moving eastward at 9mph and is expected to turn more northeastward and accelerate through the next couple of days.
Alberto will likely weaken to depression status Tuesday and a weak remnant low Wednesday.
Although this system has become before the official beginning of the Atlantic Hurricane season it by no way indicates the upcoming season will be more active or more severe than normal.
