SUMMARY: We are still experiencing the aftereffects of what was once Alberto, with the final advisory issued at 4:00 PM. Winds are strong but have decreased since yesterday. Water levels along the coast and lake are falling but will rise again with the mid-morning high tide, peaking in areas like Cadry and Grand Dial. Tides will increase through the afternoon and then recede. Another weather system in Northern Mexico may develop as it moves into the Bay of Campeche, but it is not a current threat. Another system, Invest 92, may briefly develop near Jacksonville or Coastal Georgia. The focus will shift to rising temperatures in the coming days.

Chief Meteorologist Chris Franklin has the latest update on Tropical Storm Alberto and tracking Invest 92-L.

An area over land in eastern Mexico is expected to head into the Bay of Campeche and does have a medium chance of developing.

Invest 92-L might have a brief wind of opportunity to develop before it moves inland over either the Jacksonville area or coastal Georgia.

But neither of those pose a threat to us, our focus will be on the building heat over the next
couple of days.
