TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — The National Hurricane Center is currently tracking Tropical Storm Alberto and two other tropical waves.

The NHC said Tropical Storm Alberto made landfall on Mexico’s coast Thursday morning and will continue to move inland throughout the day.

The storm’s winds are near 45 mph, with higher gusts. The system is expected to weaken as it moves onshore. It will likely dissipate over Mexico late Thursday.

The NHC said Alberto is a very large storm so residents in Texas and Mexico should not focus on the exact forecast track of the system. Heavy rain and gusty winds are starting to subside for the Texas coast but should continue through the morning along northeastern Mexico.

The storm could dump as much as 20 inches of rain on parts of Mexico, likely producing flash and urban flooding. Mudslides are also possible in areas of higher terrain across northeast Mexico.

Moderate coastal flooding is likely along much of the Texas coast through the morning.

The NHC is also tracking an area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms about 250 miles east of the northernmost Bahamas.

The system could develop as it approaches the northeastern coast of Florida or the Georgia coast early Friday. It has a 30 percent chance of developing.

On Friday, a system in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico could form near the Yucatan Peninsula. The system could become a tropical depression sometime this weekend as it moves slowly west-northwestward or northwestward. It has a 50 percent chance of developing over the next seven days.
