The Florida peninsula has been dealing with days of heavy rain and strong storms from Alberto, and all of that is expected to track northward.

According to Moss, for the most part, the rain will hold off Sunday, making it a great day for grilling out or trips to the pool.

At 2 a.m. EDT Sunday, the National Hurricane Center in Miami said Alberto was about 380 miles (615 kilometers) south of Apalachicola, Florida, and moving north-northeast at 13 mph (20 kph).

While Alberto was expected to become a tropical storm upon landfall, the likelihood of the storm becoming a full-blown hurricane remained low.

Cuba is expected to get as much as 15 inches of rain, the hurricane center said in an advisory Saturday, and the Florida Keys and South Florida could get as many as 10 inches. The storm was on track for a potential landfall in the Florida Panhandle, though the cone of uncertainty stretched well east and west of that mark. "Do not think that only areas in the cone will be impacted - everyone in our state must be prepared".

Gov. Phil Bryant signed a proclamation Saturday morning declaring a state of emergency ahead of Alberto's landfall. Only a half-inch or less of rain is expected for Monday and the chance of rain will decrease from 70 percent to 40 percent as the day turns into evening.
