Alberto: South doused with heavy rains

Alberto will continue to lift north today bringing locally heavy rain and a low threat for tornadoes to east central Florida

The soggy remnants of Alberto are spreading rain deeper into the nation's midsection after downing trees, after triggering power outages and scattered flooding around the South.

The National Hurricane Center said Alberto was forecast to work its way north-northwest through Alabama and into Tennessee and Kentucky before going north through IN, brushing Chicago and heading northeast into MI on Thursday and then Canada with whatever strength it has left.

Solo arrived in the shadow of the Death Star - Avengers: Infinity War - and hot on the heels of Deadpool 2 . Predictions claimed Solo would open to the tune of $130 million over the four-day Memorial Day weekend.

The National Weather Service said a weak tornado briefly touched down Monday in central SC as an outer band from Alberto moved through.

Areas west and east of the flash flood watch will also see likely some showers and thunderstorms today - and a locally flooding downpour isn't entirely out of the question in those areas, either.

Pressure’s on James, Cavaliers in Game 6 vs. Celtics
So, Lue didnt play his third-best player this series in a pivotal Game 5 because the Celtics didnt play their eighth-best player. At home, Boston has been a completely different team out hustling Cleveland, Philadelphia and Milwaukee on both ends.

Those areas are expected to get more rain because the eastern side of the remnants of Alberto will bring more moisture to those regions, said Robert Beasley, a weather service meteorologist in Blacksburg, Va. A flood watch is in effect through Wednesday morning for the northwestern part of the state because of the storm. Double-red flags along the white sandy beaches kept most people out of the rough waters, and some low-lying areas experienced minor flooding, officials said. "Our beaches did good". Anchor Mike McCormick and camera operator Aaron Smeltzer from Greenville, South Carolina's, WYFF News were on Highway 176 when the tree came down after heavy rains saturated the ground, police said. The men died instantly, their vehicle's engine still running, he said.
