Tropical disturbance to bring large amount of rain for Memorial Day weekend

TALKING THE TROPICS: Mike Buresh explains the low pressure over Caribbean

A tropical disturbance is moving into the Gulf of Mexico this weekend. 
And it's not even hurricane season yet. 
The tropical disturbance may not become a named storm, regardless, the system will dump a large amount of rain on Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia for Memorial Day weekend. 
If the system becomes a tropical storm, it will be named Alberto. 


If there is a named storm in May, history shows that there is some correlation to an active season overall in the United States. A possible landfall will be between Louisiana and the Florida Panhandle sometime over the weekend.




In Talking the Tropics@MikeFirstAlert says the screaming message with this system will be heavy rain potential from Jacksonville and along the I-10 corridor all the way to New Orleans. 
The more west you go from Jacksonville, the stronger the impacts: Gusty winds, rough seas/surf, rip currents and heavy rain.
