Maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph with higher gusts - and extend outward 150 miles, primarily east of the center toward Florida.

Rain chances were forecast to begin increasing Saturday night and be at 70 to 80 percent on Sunday and Monday.

The storm was located about 65 miles north-northwest of the eastern tip of Cuba, or 195 miles northwest of the Dry Tortugas.

US forecasters followed suit by issuing a tropical storm watch for parts of the Gulf Coast from the Florida Panhandle southwest of Tallahassee to the New Orleans metropolitan area.

The first named storm of the 2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season has formed, exactly one week before the official start of the season.

Hurricane season doesn't formally start until June 1.

It is not organized enough yet to be a tropical storm, and is considered subtropical.

Forecasters at the National Weather Service warned residents along coastal Alabama and MS as well as the Florida Panhandle to brace for heavy rain and high winds. The best chance for rain and/or storms will be west of I-95 this afternoon. Parts of Cuba could see 10 to 15 inches of rain, with isolated totals of 25 inches across western Cuba, the hurricane center said.

Along with the threat of floods, which could mean about four to eight inches of rain in the Florida Keys and up to a foot in some low-lying locations, and four to six inches along the Miami-Dade and Broward coastlines, tornadoes are also a possibility through tonight, the National Weather Service said.

Red flags warning of unsafe surf conditions are already flying along some beaches.

Subtropical Storm Alberto continued to track toward the Gulf Coast on Saturday but was still a disorganized storm, according to the National Hurricane Center.

"This system will bring excessive rainfall to the watch area beginning Saturday evening and continuing through Tuesday evening".

Alberto is in the southeastern Gulf of Mexico as a subtropical storm. Some storms could produce some very heavy downpours across the region, but they will remain scattered so not everyone will see the rain.

One of the most deadly natural disasters in US history occurred in Florida 90 years ago.
