FIRST TO ALERT: Alberto continues to weaken, but still bringing rain to the Valley for Tuesday.

Alberto made landfall in Laguna Beach, Florida Monday afternoon around 5 PM ET, and weakened into a subtropical depression overnight. We will continue to see rain bands from Alberto lifting into the Valley from the Gulf throughout the day Tuesday, but the axis of heavier rain remains west of area, closer to the center of Alberto’s circulation.

In our neck of the woods, we could pick up an additional 1-2” of rain over the next few days, and a Flash Flood Watch remains in effect until Wednesday morning.  In addition to the off-and-on rain, gusty winds kicked in overnight and will stay elevated through the early afternoon.  Even after windy conditions subside a bit, rain bands will still trickle in through Tuesday evening. Expect high rain chances through Wednesday thanks to remnant moisture left in Alberto’s wake.

But finally, rain chances dwindle later in the work week. Slowly working more sunshine into the forecast, though there will still be some clouds around. Highs resume in the 90s this weekend. And though next week will feature some rain chances, overall the pattern looks drier in comparison to the wet month of May we’ve had thus far.
