Memorial Day along the Gulf Coast has been dominated by Subtropical Storm Alberto which will make landfall near Panama City Monday morning, bringing an abundance of rain to parts of the Florida Panhandle. 

Winds are around 65 mph with gusts up to around 75, however, this wind field if relatively confined to the center of the storm as this has been a small compact storm. 

Heavy rain will be the predominate threat with 6-12" of rain possible in some areas between Pensacola and just east of Panama City, so travelers will want to be aware of the flooding potential. 

Acadiana’s impacts from this system will be minimal and all south Louisiana will get is a breeze out of the north around 8-12 mph, this could interact with our moist atmosphere and spark a few showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon. 

In the meantime, it will be hot and humid the next few days, with drier, hotter air moving into Acadiana by the end of the week and the start of the weekend.
