The storm already dumped a prodigious amount of rain on South Florida over the weekend, setting a new one-day record for the date in Key West with almost three-and-a-half inches and sparking tornado and flash-flood warnings across the region.

Could the 2018 hurricane season be getting a two-week head start?

Much of the state can expect 1 to 3 inches of rainfall through the week.

Miami Beach officials said the city's pumps operated without any problems during the heavy rain, but they plan to check them anyway "in an abundance of caution", public works director Roy Coley said in an email.

"If everything stays status quo and just get some rain in the area - wet things down but not significant flooding and certainly no real tropical impacts like wind or flooding - we're just not looking for that", said Shephard. If it does garner a name, it would be "Alberto".

A subtropical storm has a large center of circulation with heavy thunderstorm activity at least 100 miles from its center, according to the hurricane center. The National Hurricane Center (NHC) has lowered tropical development chances for that surface low from 40 percent to 30 percent as of Monday afternoon, and we doubt anyone is complaining about that.

Named storms in May in the Gulf are exceedingly rare: The most recent named storm to form in the Gulf of Mexico in May was a subtropical storm in 1976, according to Colorado State University meteorologist Phil Klotzbach.

From Florida to North Carolina, the Weather Service predicts widespread totals of two to four inches over the next several days, with a pocket of four to seven inches in eastern Florida. Although the rain is beneficial overall, there could be pockets of localized flash flooding in some districts.

U.S. Drought Monitor valid May 8.

The hurricane center began watching an area of low pressure in the Gulf of Mexico over the weekend. By late May, the rainy season is usually ramping up across South Florida.
