The storm is located about 50 miles (80 km) west-northwest of Dothan, Alabama, with maximum sustained winds of 35 mph (55 kph), the Miami-based weather forecaster said.

“Continued weakening is forecast as Alberto moves farther inland, and the system is expected to degenerate into a remnant low by Tuesday evening,” the NHC said.
