DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 500 AM EDT (0900 UTC), the center of Post-Tropical Cyclone
Alberto, now a wave of low pressure along a frontal zone, was
located near latitude 44.9 North, longitude 83.9 West.  The
post-tropical cyclone is moving toward the north-northeast near 35
mph (55 km/h) and this motion is expected to continue until it
attempts to merge with an approaching frontal wave in southeast
Ontario early this afternoon.

Maximum sustained winds are near 30 mph (45 km/h) with higher gusts.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 994 mb (29.36 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
RAINFALL:  Additional rainfall of 1 to 2 inches, with isolated
higher amounts, will be possible within the convergent flow
well to the southeast of Alberto across the western Carolinas and
near the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia this morning. Isolated to
scattered flash flooding will remain a possibility across this
area.

WIND:  Wind gusts approaching tropical-storm force (39 mph or 62
km/h) will fade this morning across southeast Lower Michigan as
the system pulls away to the northeast.
