ATLANTA - Subtropical storm Alberto's outer bands are hammering cities along the Gulf Coast and some of those bands have even reached metro Atlanta.
A Flash Flood Watch will go into effect Monday night and will continue through Tuesday night as Alberto moves ashore and dumps rounds of rain across north Georgia. Two to 4 inches of rainfall are possible with isolated spots receiving more.
Severe Weather Team 2 Meteorologist Katie Walls said tropical storm force winds will reach the coastline Sunday night and will extend 115 miles from the storm's center.
Rainfall from #Alberto will come in waves. We're experiencing the first one now. Flooding is my primary concern in the coming days. Storms embedded in those bands could produce gusts to 35 mph. @KarenMintonWSB is tracking the latest starting at 4:30AM pic.twitter.com/VAPixWhc2o— Katie Walls (@KatieWallsWSB) May 28, 2018
Tropical storm warnings are in effect for the Alabama coastline and along the Florida coastline to the Anclote River in southwest Florida. Storm surge of 2-4 feet are possible along Florida’s coastline. Parts of Florida and the Gulf Coast are expecting up to 12-inches of rain. Deadly rip currents are ongoing.
If you're traveling this holiday weekend, Delta is helping passengers whose trips are affected by Alberto.
The Atlanta-based airline will issue refunds for passengers whose flights are canceled or delayed for more than 90 minutes.
Delta will also waive fees for passengers who want to change their flights to or from affected cities.
