DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 400 PM CDT (2100 UTC), the center of Tropical Depression Alberto
was located near latitude 40.5 North, longitude 86.4 West. The
depression is moving toward the north-northeast near 23 mph (37
km/h) and this motion is expected to gradually increase overnight.

Maximum sustained winds are near 30 mph (45 km/h) with higher gusts.
Little change in strength is forecast during the next 36 hours. The
system will transition to an extratropical wave cyclone as the
remnant circulation encounters an upper level trough moving east
across the Great Lakes through Thursday.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 998 mb (29.47 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
RAINFALL:  Additional rainfall of 1 to 3 inches, with isolated
higher amounts, will be possible northward along the track of
Alberto into the Lower Peninsula of Michigan. Isolated to
scattered flash flooding will remain a possibility across this
area.

WIND:  A few wind gusts may approach tropical-storm force (34 knots
or 39 mph) from central and northern Indiana into Lower Michigan
into this evening.
