The latest track for Subtropical Storm Alberto from the National Hurricane Center brings the storm ashore Monday afternoon in the Florida Panhandle, then tracks it close to Interstate 65 into Middle Tennessee on Tuesday.
This means that Tuesday will likely bring an “all day rain” that could be heavy at times.

Up to two inches of rain could fall in some areas, so a Flash Flood Watch is in effect for all of Middle Tennessee from Tuesday morning until Wednesday morning.
The quick movement of the track has the center already near the Ohio River by Wednesday morning, meaning that rain will be tapering back to scattered showers by then. The quicker the movement, the better to mitigate flooding potential.
Because of the “twisting” of the winds with the tropical system passing by, The Storm Prediction Center has placed our eastern counties under a “Marginal Risk” for severe weather with the possibility of a brief spin up tornado. Those chances are low, but not zero.
