2012 in the Atlantic is off and storming!!!


The first tropical storm of the 2012 Atlantic hurricane season has formed, 13 days before the official start of the season.

Tropical Storm Alberto developed Saturday afternoon from a disturbance off the coast of the Carolinas. Alberto is expected to drift slowly southwest through Sunday, but a trough of low pressure swinging in from the nation's midsection should pick Alberto up and carry it to the north and northeast by early next week.
