* Subtropical Storm Alberto
* More Tropical Air Coming
* Don't Cancel Race Plans

Subtropical Storm Alberto became the first named storm of the season Friday. Over the holiday weekend, it will continue to move out into the Gulf and toward the US Gulf Coast. The most likely scenario seems to be for the storm to strengthen just a tad before it heads for land and moves up into the US - but staying well west of us. 

Alberto's exact path however will end up being of little consequence to our weekend forecast though since the broader circulation virtually guarantees more tropical air pouring back into the Carolinas.  So naturally rain chances will be elevated, but incredibly, it still appears some dry air will hang around on Sunday and may well clear the way for the Coca Cola 600 Race Sunday evening at Charlotte Motor Speedway.  

For next week, the track of Alberto becomes more important in determining how much rain we see during the week. There is a good chance for rain and muggy weather each day. Highs will remain in the mid 80s. 

Have a good weekend!
