TALLAHASSEE, FL (WTXL) -- This weekend's weather brought to us by Subtropical Storm Alberto. Although the center of rotation is still 450 miles south of Apalachicola, the rain extends well to the north and east of it. As we move into the Sunday, and even Monday, Alberto will push closer to the Florida/Alabama border, bringing us quite a bit of rain bands, and gusty winds. Within these rain bands have heavier rain, and stronger storms. There is a chance that some of these storms become severe, and could possibly produce a spin-up, similar to what we've seen in past tropical systems.

Tonight, expect to see a a few rain showers and thunderstorms with mostly cloudy conditions. Winds will be from the east, about 5 to 10 mph. Overnight lows fall to the low 70s.

Sunday, we'll see quite a quite a bit of rain, likely in the form of rain bands. As previously mentioned, some of the rain storms could become stronger at times. Winds are expected to be breezy, from the east at 15 mph with stronger gusts. Highs remain unseasonably cool, only heating to the low 80s. Sunday night also looks to be on the wet side as Subtropical Storm Alberto sits just off the Florida/Alabama coast.
