High pressure ridge will retreat as Alberto moves north through
the Gulf. Winds and seas will rise this morning as the pressure
gradient increases. Showers and thunderstorms associated with
Alberto will arrive in bands from the south and persist for most
of the day. Occasional gusts near gale force will be possible this
afternoon and evening in stronger squalls. Alberto will reach the
Northern Gulf coast Monday, then move further inland, as high

over the region late in the week.
