Tropical Storm Alberto formed over the weekend, and Alberto has been struggling to maintain tropical storm strength ever since. As of 10 AM this morning, Alberto had sustained winds at 40 mph, and Alberto should maintain tropical storm strength for another day or so before being downgraded. The movement is away from the United States, and the chances of Alberto strengthening into a hurricane are very slim. Just because this tropical storm formed before the official start of the 2012 Atlantic Hurricane Season doesn’t mean it will be a bad hurricane season. In a few weeks, Alberto will be a distant memory as it will be a forgotten storm, which is a good thing.
