This is a low threat, but stay weather aware with the Storm Team 7 Weather App through this evening in case warnings are issued.

Forecasters warn storms could bring more flooding Wednesday, but say the heavy rains will be isolated and not widespread. Up to 3 inches of rain have fallen Tuesday. "As the pattern evolves, motorists should be prepared for localized, torrential downpours that may quickly flood streets and low-lying portions of highways". Life-threatening flash flooding is being reported along the Catawba River and its tributaries there. "It was a constant rain but not a heavy rain", said Regina Myers, emergency management director in Walker County northwest of Birmingham. "When driving along roads where the terrain is steep or rocky, watch and listen for falling rocks, mud, trees and other debris".

"On the forecast track, the center of Alberto will move over Alabama later tonight and Tuesday", the NHC said. Most of the region saw only spurts of heavy rain through the weekend, with overcast and at times even sunny skies.

The once subtropical storm is now centralized over West Central Tennessee and will continue on its way northward on what looks like a collision course with Greater Lafayette. But scattered rain and storms will diminish and take a break late tonight through Thursday morning.

Tennant did not directly blame the up to 2 inches (5 centimetres) of rain that fell Monday from the fringes of Alberto for the deaths. Flash flood watches and warnings were in effect for parts of several states from Alabama through Tennessee, Kentucky, Illinois, the Carolinas and Virginia and West Virginia.

Sunday will be hot and muggy also with a high near 90.

"The main thing we would advise people is to not pay too much attention to the maximum winds", Zelinsky said. "Alberto might cause a couple hundred million in damage at worst when it does make landfall, and there is still flooding potential".

The remnants of Alberto will bring rain showers and thunderstorms to north central Wisconsin today.

Wednesday night: Cloudy, a shower possible. We'll expect a large majority of those storms to be inland and mainly in the afternoons of Thursday and Friday. Conditions will be partly sunny with a high near 88 degrees.

Numerous area lakes already are at higher-than-normal levels, she says, leading Duke to release more water through its dams to create storage space for what is expected to be rolling down from the west.
