[Friday Evening] Alberto Forms – Flooding from Heavy Rain and Storm Surge Primary Threats to U.S.

   Posted by Levi at 6:40pm on May 25, 2018

Latest Advisory from the National Hurricane Center




  • BeachFoxx says:

    Ugh! Looks like I’m at it near ground zero. Thanks Levi
    So proud to see you come so far!!

  • HugeDong says:

    Huge Dong here. Another great update, keep them coming.

  • J.B. says:

    Could this be a cat 1 at landfall in Florida, with a expanded windfield into southeastern Louisiana?

    • Noah says:

      It Probably will not.

    • Sar Jim says:

      J.B., it certainly won’t be both a Florida landfall and hurricane windfields to Louisiana. Landfall in the Florida Panhandle is possible but not the Florida Peninsula. The strongest winds will be on the east side of the storm so it would take a big shift in landfall to spread hurricane force winds to Louisiana. At this point, with a disorganized storm, nothing is impossible, but your scenario isn’t likely.

      Regards, Jim

    I’ve been following your page for a year since moving to FL. I love your work, and was really happy to see your work product displayed as part of the Florida SERT weather briefing this evening- kudos! Keep up the great work.

  • Brenda Strickler says:

    Another awesome video ! ….. I live south of Mobile and its not looking so good for us …. I look forward to your videos every night now …. Thank you so very much !

  • Robert says:

    Most of the radar predictions has this storm moving west/northwest and missing the entire East coast! Yet and still, some weather channels are predicting FIVE INCHES on rain in Savannah and Beaufort, SC on Sunday! I just don’t see it, do you? Who are these people, anyway? What are there credentials for predicting weather/rain, etc? I hope they get new jobs before the Hurricane season is actually upon us! They will have the entire state of South Carolina evacuating to Minnesota!

    • Sar Jim says:

      Robert, I don’t pay a lot of attention to TV weather presenters. Very few have any education in tropical weather, and they do have ratings to worry about. Trusted forecasters like the NHC and Levi are much better sources of information.

      Regards, Jim

  • Richard says:

    Well. Here is the deal. About Saturday noon I will make a decision on my plan of action. 1) take boat out of lift. 2) Buy lots of beer. 3) wait till all weather passes. Probably just raise the lift and follow steps 2 and 3.

    • ossqss says:

      If you have proper insurance, go to option 4, which only needs #2 and #3 involved. I have no idea where you are, but it doesn’t matter either way. Good Luck!

  • ossqss says:

    Would not the LLC run north to stack instead of the MLC digging down? Just looking at the pressures as an ob. Hoping more dry air piles in the system to dry the West coast of Florida out for a graduation party tomorrow for my daughter, who is headed to FSU! Make some room up ther Levi! πŸ˜‰

  • Mark says:

    What can we expect in Western North Carolina? Especially after the serious flooding that occurred here last weekend…Thank You!!!

    • Anonymous says:

      The Forcast Cone says that NC will not get hit by Alberto

      • 48382882djejwusjsj3728susjsjwjwu2727 says:

        Only a little bit on the outside of the cone with hit North Carolina, but the cone is big!

    • Sar Jim says:

      Mark, getting hit directly by Alberto isn’t likely, but rain from Alberto could cause you problems. With your saturated soil, rain from Alberto could renew at least part of that flooding. Just keep an eye on the watches and warning for your area.

      Regards, Jim

  • Lola says:

    So I should leave the sunscreen behind when I vacation in Tulum next week, huh? :/

    • Sar Jim says:

      Lola, Tulum is always sunny and hot, even in the midst of a hurricane. πŸ™‚ Have fun.

      Regards, Jim

  • John says:

    Thanks for the post. We live in fort Lauderdale and are thinking to visit friends in Jacksonville Saturday. Is it safe to drive with possible flooding conditions

    • Sar Jim says:

      John, Saturday will be fine. Sunday and Monday might be a different story.


  • Noah says:

    Can you do another video soon?

  • Anonymous says:


  • Anonymous says:

    It’s still 40 mph. 1006 mb.

  • Noah Hanselman says:

    Correction: It is 1005 mb

  • Skjsmsjsmssksmekdmms,z,swksl2838383883 says:

    The Pressure and maximum winds are the same, but it is moving north at 10mph

  • Morris says:

    Does this early development have anything to do with the volcano in Hawaii?

  • Hurricane Master 2005 says:

    How strong will it be?

  • Robert says:

    Well, we had less than two inches on Sunday, and barely an inch on Monday. That’s a far cry from the 5 inches plus they were predicting for Beaufort! Fact is this WHOLE storm petered out and picked up speed so that the total rainfall amounts were vastly over exaggerated for the entire storm/system. How disappointed Accu-weather and there crews must be! Now they can’t wait to conjure up another weak storm system and turn it into a major weather phenomena!
