Hurricane season is off to a roaring start down here. Yesterday, Alberto became the first named storm of the season, and we’re already experiencing the effects.
It started raining some time early this morning, and has rained constantly all morning, with periods of heavy rain. There really hasn’t been much in the way of winds yet.
Interestingly enough, the current forecast by the National Hurricane Center has Alberto becoming a minimal hurricane later today or early tomorrow. However, the forecast track seems to be moving further north, and at last check, Tampa was no longer even in the cone of probability for a strike. However, all the rain is piled up on the northeast side of this thing, so we’re going to get that. But, it’s much needed rain.
