First named Storm of 2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season

The Atlantic Hurricane Season technically begins on June 1 of each year. But, 2018 is off to an early start, more specifically 9 a.m. on May 25. The National Weather Service named the system in the northwestern Caribbean “Alberto.”

As of this posting, Alberto is only a sub-tropical storm, but local meteorologists are expecting Alberto to have a significant impact on the Upstate of South Carolina during and after the Memorial Day weekend. Weather patterns are predicting between 2 and 6 inches of rain in certain parts of the Upstate between Sunday and Wednesday. And that could lead to issues because of the amount of rainfall over the past two weeks saturating the ground. There may be flooding and mudslides in some areas.

We encourage area residents to exercise caution during this storm event.
