Gulf Coast Hurricane Tracker

A single source reference on tropical weather predictions. With a traditional focus on the upper Texas and Louisiana Gulf Coast we've maintained links to track all Atlantic Basin, Caribbean and eastern Pacific storm systems. We are now expanding our view to tropical storms throughout the world intending to be a comprehensive global storm tracking resource.

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.
