    MIAMI (Reuters) - Tropical Storm Alberto formed off the South Carolina coast on Saturday, bringing an early start to the Atlantic hurricane season, forecasters at the U.S. National Hurricane Center said.


    Alberto was in the Atlantic about 140 miles east-southeast of Charleston. Forecasters initially estimated its top sustained winds at 45 miles per hour but raised that to 60 mph when data from a ship in the area showed the storm was stronger than first thought.


    It was moving slowly southwest and forecasters said a storm watch might be posted later on Saturday for coastal North and South Carolina. Only moderate strengthening was expected.

    An early start after a warm winter and tornado outbreaks....this should be an interesting summer weather-wise.
