Subtropical Storm Alberto has made landfall, bringing with it a path of destruction. Your 7 Day Forecast keeps rain chances around for the rest of the week, but very much scattered in nature tomorrow, and mainly inland by Thursday and Friday. But forecasters said it will dump heavy rain on parts of the Florida Panhandle, Alabama and Georgia, raising the risk of flash flooding. Lifeguards posted red flags along the white sands of Pensacola Beach, where swimming and wading were banned due to high surf and unsafe conditions. While he says some people are wading along the water's edge, others are taking refuge in bars and restaurants. The storm was moving north at 6 miles per hour with winds that remained at 65 miles per hour. The reason the storm has the "sub" prefix is due to the system showing qualities of both a tropical system (warmest part of system is in center) along with qualities of a more traditional cyclone (while weak, it has fronts circulating around it).

The storm is expected to spin up multiple tornadoes as it marches inland after making landfall this afternoon. It is still predicted to bring extremely heavy rain, gusty winds and, just east of where the center makes landfall, a rise in ocean water of up to several feet above normally dry land.
