Forecasters warned of life-threatening surf conditions as Alberto approached the Florida Panhandle, where it was expected to make landfall later in the day.

Subtropical Storm Alberto was disrupting plans for Memorial Day barbecues and beach outings in Alabama, Florida and MS, as the storm continued churning north through the Gulf of Mexico on Sunday.
Outer rain bands from the storm have already begun affecting areas as far away as North Carolina as Alberto begins to take on the typical appearance of a tropical storm, with clouds and thunderstorms beginning to wrap counterclockwise around the center of circulation.
