Alberto is on Land now
The eye of the storm has come ashore this morning. Fortunately winds never did reach hurricane strength. The storm track posted here shows a long stretch over land before the eye passes back over water around the VA/NC border.
The issue now is primarily rainfall and I'm sure flooding is a concern. The tropical update a few posts down explains the official concerns much better than I can. It is interesting to me that the strength of Alberto is being predicted to hold at a Tropical Storm level across the land. Earlier the prediction was for it to drop back to a depression and then reform once it got out in to the Atlantic. I wonder if there is much of a risk along the coast or into Canada. We will keep a watch on this storm until the advisories are cancelled.
