The first named storm of the 2018 hurricane season — Alberto — has formed in the Gulf of Mexico, the National Hurricane Center said on Friday morning.

The hurricane center will begin issuing regular advisories on Alberto, which is currently located over the northwestern Caribbean, Friday morning. The National Center shows Alberto making landfall on Monday or Tuesday, somewhere between Louisiana and the Florida Panhandle.

Current models have Alberto stalling out over the southeastern U.S. If the track proves correct, the Piedmont Triad can expect steady rain through the middle of next week.  Total rainfall through Thursday night is expected to range from 4” to 6” and temperatures Tuesday through Thursday will hover in the lower- to mid-80’s.
