Share

A tropical storm watch has been issued for metro New Orleans, the National Weather Service announced Friday afternoon, as Subtropical Storm Alberto churns in the Caribbean Sea.

The center of the storm was located about 110 miles southeast of Cozumel, Mexico, and 180 miles south-southwest of the western tip of Cuba as of the National Hurricane Center's 11 p.m. EDT update.

Storms Friday morning should not be severe, but some heavy rainfall and wind gusts up to 45 miles per hour can be expected.

The World Cup is pivotal for Salah in his quest to end Africa's wait for a second Ballon d'Or victor . Salah has had an incredible season this year.

A tropical storm watch means sustained tropical storm force winds in excess of 39 mph are possible in the watch area within 48 hours. That's a typical trait of subtropical storms, which have maximum winds far from the center, rather than clustered tightly around the center like a tropical storm.

Forecasters say a tropical weather system moving toward the Gulf of Mexico is strengthening. Alberto would mark the first named storm of the 2018 Atlantic season.

An early named storm doesn't indicate the this year's hurricane season will be more or less active than normal.

The flood watch goes into effect at 2 p.m. Saturday and runs through 8 p.m. Monday. Rainfall could reach up to 6 inches in parts of Florida up to the Carolinas.
