The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration released the annual hurricane season forecast Thursday in which it calls for 10 to 16 named storms, with five to nine hurricanes.

Alberto disrupted long Memorial Day holiday weekend plans along from Pensacola in the Florida Panhandle to Miami Beach and other areas along the northern Gulf Coast, forced beachgoers out of the the water and prompted evacuations of low-lying areas.

TVA is expecting to open some flood gates later this week when Subtropical Storm Alberto reaches East Tennessee.

"The main impact will be heavy rain, but our biggest concern is the rip currents", Rogers said Sunday afternoon.

When the rain hits, TVA warns boaters and fishers that dams could open at any time without much warning. The storm is also pushing rain bands towards the coast, Gardner said, so there could be some heavy rain there as well.

Subtropical Storm Alberto is expected to remain well west of the Triangle as it moves north from the Gulf of Mexico, but the storm is helping to steer heavy, potentially flooding rains our way.

Isolated tornadoes are likely through Monday night in parts of Georgia and southeastern Alabama, the NHC said.

She said in 2017 that while she might be "Caucasian biologically" she nevertheless "had an authentic black identity". Dolezal is the subject of a Netflix documentary called " The Rachel Divide ", which was released in April.

Weather pushed ahead of the storm has canceled or rearranged some Memorial Day events in Beaufort County, including the Beaufort Memorial Day Parade and The Hilton Head Island Council of the Navy League's 25th Annual Memorial Day Remembrance.

The storm made landfall late Monday afternoon in Laguna Beach, Florida, Stephanie Abrams, a meteorologist at The Weather Channel told Newsweek. Its winds, which had strengthened overnight to 65 miles per hour, were down to 60 miles per hour as of 11 a.m.

The storm's maximum sustained winds had reached 65 miles per hour Sunday night - but although it lost strength, National Hurricane Center meteorologist David Zelinsky told NPR there was no reason to relax.

Rhumes said they've already prepared for the storm by stocking up on groceries. "So how often can you say you rode a storm out?"

Janet Rhumes said her group of friends from Kansas had been planning their Memorial Day weekend on Navarre Beach since October.

Ponce de Leon Road is about a quarter-mile away from the river but the flood waters are still all over the road and people's lawns. Subtropical storms can develop into tropical storms, which in turn can strengthen into hurricanes.That tropical moisture will make its way into North Carolina Monday and Tuesday.

Watch out for a few areas of patchy fog, mist and drizzle early.
