HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND

RAINFALL:  Alberto is expected to produce 2 to 6 inches of rain from
Alabama northward into the southern Great Lakes and from north
Florida into the southern Appalachians through Thursday. Isolated
maximum storm totals of 12 inches are possible over the Florida
Panhandle and Alabama.  These rains may produce flooding and flash
flooding.

WIND: A few gusts to tropical-storm force are possible across
portions of central and northern Alabama this morning.

TORNADOES: A tornado or two may occur today from southern Kentucky
to parts of Georgia.

SURF:  Swells generated by Alberto will continue to affect the
