Hurricane Alberto Tracking - Tropical Storm Alberto Tracking

If there is no tracking map, just a blue page with 'No Tracking Initiated', then the tropical cyclone was not tracked on this site due to the following reasons :

i) the cyclone never became a tropical storm or hurricane (we only track named storms here), or

ii) the storm was never considered to be a threat to land by the NHC, or

iii) no-one was here to do the tracking e.g. holidays, work commitments etc.

STATUS: Tracking Tropical Storm Alberto, inland in Georgia.



13th June, 2006 22:00 News Update

Alberto has just crossed the border into Georgia and is tracking northeast at 40 mph. The chances are, that on the next advisories, Alberto will be a tropical depression then an extra-tropical storm shooting up the east coast. Since this site only tracks named storms, this will be the last tracking map for Alberto.

13th June, 2006 16:00 News Update

Alberto is just about to come ashore as a 50 mph tropical storm, just to the southeast of the Big Bend. It's still tracking northeast and dissipating fast.

STATUS: Tracking Tropical Storm Alberto, in the Gulf of Mexico.
13th June, 2006 12:00 News

Tropical Storm Alberto slowing down as it approaches the Big Bend. Alberto's speed has dropped to 65 mph as it approaches the coast and tracking northeast. This looks as if Alberto's chances of ever becoming a hurricane have gone out of the window.

STATUS: Tracking Tropical Storm Alberto, in the Gulf of Mexico.



12th June, 2006 22:00 News Update

Tropical Storm Alberto fails to reach hurricane status as it approaches the Florida coastline - breath a sigh of relief. Now tracking towards the northeast, Alberto's speed has increased to 10 mph. The chances are that Alberto will continue to speed up as it crosses Florida and Georgia and, at the same time, rapidly de-intensify as per the NHC's prediction.

12th June, 2006 18:00 News Update

NHC have now decided that the LLC to the northeast of the original is now the dominant one, and moved Alberto's position further to the north and east. Tropical Storm Alberto has also increased in intensity again since the last advisory, and significantly so. This rapid change in intensity has forced them to issue hurricane warnings for much of the central to northern west Florida coastline, from Tampa to the panhandle. They expect Alberto to become Hurricane Alberto within the next 24 hours. Alberto is moving to the north-northeast at 7 mph with maximum sustained winds of 70mph. The NHC predicted track is such that the centre is still expected to be to the south of the Big Bend.

12th June, 2006 04:00 News

Looking very broad and ragged, Tropical Storm Alberto has, nevertheless, increased in intensity over the last 12 hours. Alberto is moving to the north-northeast at 8 mph with maximum sustained winds of 50mph. NHC still have Alberto crossing just to the south of the Big Bend, at which time they expect it to be tracking to the northeast.

11th June, 2006 22:00 News Update

Despite being strongly sheared from the southwest, Tropical Storm Alberto's appearance over the last six hours has improved somewhat. This can be seen in the latest short visible image. That said, the NHC have not changed their position on Alberto since the last advisory, and still have Alberto remaining at it's current intensity for the next 24 hours. A lot of rain has been falling over Florida, bringing some welcome relief to residents that have been going through a long dry spell.

11th June, 2006 16:00 News

Tropical Depression One has now intensified to become the first named storm of the year, Tropical Storm Alberto. Alberto looks much better organised since entering the GOM overnight, with it's visible cloud banding clear to see. Convection is still well to the east of the center and is likely to remain there until the westerly shear eases. This system is over the warmer waters of the Gulf, away from the shelf, so some intensification could be expected over the next 24 hours, although the NHC are not currently going out on a limb and stating that. The NHC expect Alberto to continue on it north-westerly track initially, then make a turn the north and northeast later. Alberto still looks likely to pass over the Big Bend and northernmost Florida as the models were predicting. This will result in high levels of precipitation - just what the doctor ordered. Current speed is 9 mph with maximum sustained winds of 45 knots.

10th June, 2006 16:00 News

The mass of cloud and convection in the NW Caribbean has indeed become Tropical Depression Alberto (or TD01 as they're calling it - I will stick to Alberto since I believe it will quickly make it to Tropical Storm status). Alberto is tracking north-northwest at 12mph, and is expected to enter the Gulf of Mexico in the very near future. Sustained winds are 35mph, and the projected path takes him over northern Florida as a Tropical Storm in 3 days.


STATUS: Watching Alberto, -to be. System 90L in the NW Caribbean.

Well, that pesky-looking low in the south-western Caribbean that I mentioned last week has been getting it's act together. It is now somewhat further north, and beginning to take shape. The models are almost uniformly in agreement that this system will track north into the gulf, turn north-east to cross northern Florida, then push onwards up the east coast. Word on the street is that it could be a tropical depression within 24 hours, and become tropical storm Alberto not long after.

Sit down and buckle your belts, this could be a bumpy ride. At the very least, System 90L could bring substantial rain to Florida over the next few days. Check out the latest computer models here


I shall continue to update the tracking maps until Hurricane Alberto dies.
I can be found in the central Florida hurricane center forum until the end of November.
