At 5 p.m. Sunday, center of Subtropical Storm Alberto was located about 165 miles west of Tampa, moving toward the north-northwest near 12 mph. Along the coast a few wind gusts to 40 miles per hour are possible, while the rest of the area will be breezy with winds of 20-35 miles per hour.

The projected storm track for Alberto has shifted eastward, according to reports, lessening the threat to oil production facilities in the Gulf of Mexico, but increasing the danger to northeastern Florida coastal areas.

The Air Force Reserve's Hurricane Hunters again flew out Saturday to gather data on the storm, and it has not strengthened much if at all, the center says.
