DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 1000 AM CDT (1500 UTC), the center of Tropical Depression Alberto
was located near latitude 38.7 North, longitude 87.4 West. The
depression is moving toward the north-northeast near 17 mph (28
km/h) and this motion is expected to accelerate today.

Maximum sustained winds are near 30 mph (45 km/h) with higher
gusts. The system will transition to an extratropical wave cyclone
as the remnant circulation comes under the influence of an upper
level trough moving across the Great Lakes and southern Canada
through Thursday.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 997 mb (29.44 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
RAINFALL:  Additional rainfall of 2 to 4 inches, with isolated
higher amounts, will be possible northward along the
Illinois/Indiana border into the Lower Peninsula of
Michigan. Flash flooding and rapid water rises on creeks and streams
will remain a possibility across these areas.

WIND:  A few wind gusts may approach tropical-storm force (34 knots
or 39 mph) across western and central Indiana today.
