Look like this holiday weekend could be a wash-out from a possible tropical storm from the Gulf of Mexico.

ATLANTA - Much of Georgia is under a flash flood watch through Saturday morning, which was just expanded by the National Weather Service.

Severe Weather Team 2 Meteorologist Brad Nitz said the watch is in effect ahead of anticipated heavy rain this weekend.

Two to four inches of rain is possible, with isolated areas receiving up to eight inches, Nitz said.

Egad. The Weather Channel says that parts of the Gulf Coast could receive up to 20" of rain. That is God awful.

Subtropical Storm Alberto developed Friday morning and is located about 55 miles south of Cozumel, Mexico. It has winds of 40 mph and is moving to the north-northeast at 6 mph.

"Alberto could bring tropical storm conditions and storm surge to portions of the central and eastern Gulf Coast later this weekend and early next week," the hurricane center said. Alberto is forecast to approach the north-central Gulf Coast on Monday.

The slow-moving storm will also dump heavy rain across much of the southeastern United States through Memorial Day weekend.

That's what we call almost fake news with that title there. Here in Atlanta (this is the ATL forum) the rain that is expected is 2-3".

Y'all stay safe and good luck with your move Soccernerd!
