    Tropical Storm Alberto hovers off SC coast

    It's just way too early for this nonsense...

    "The first storm of the season that officially begins June 1 was not expected to approach landfall on the Carolinas' coast, but it had prompted a tropical storm watch and forecasters warned that it could produce high winds, heavy surf, rip currents and scattered rain across the region."

    But then, maybe an early start will truly mean a light season.

    "Overall, the predictions are not dire for 2012. The season is being forecast to be relatively tame. Forecasters seem to agree mostly that there is a probability of 12 named storms and out of the 12 named storms, seven possibly will develop into hurricanes."

    And here are this season's names:
    Alberto
    Beryl
    Chris
    Debby
    Ernesto
    Florence
    Gordon
    Helene
    Issac
    Joyce
    Kirk
    Leslie
    Michael
    Nadine
    Oscar
    Patty
    Rafael
    Sandy
    Tony
    Valerie
    William

    Did anyone feel the effects of this storm? It seemed to weaken rather suddenly.

    I was just thinking about you Gypsy as you said in the shark thread that you are on the coast. Are you in the path of the storm?

    Aw...Thanks for thinking of me! Naw...I am waaaaay over here in the NW Panhandle. We have a place here in Destin on the water where I spend a lot of time and happen to be right now, but I live in Pensacola - about 10 minutes from the water. We will get some rain probably from this storm if it makes it's way over here, but I don't suppose anything too bad. We could use some rain actually.

    A very early storm. The water should still be too cold for TS activity.
