CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Showers are expected to continue into Tuesday for the Lowcountry as Alberto, which has been downgraded to a subtropical depression, moves north after making landfall in Florida. 

The Live 5 Weather Team has declared Monday a First Alert Weather Day.

Even though Alberto is well to our west, Live 5 Chief Meteorologist Bill Walsh says our area is expected to continue to feel effects in the form of sporadic showers through Tuesday morning. 

"It's a big rainmaker," Walsh said."What's coming our way is on and off again rain showers, as well as periods of dry weather." 

Alberto weakened to a subtropical depression late Monday night after it made landfall near Panama City, Florida and is expected to move north-northwest through Alabama. 

Temperatures on Tuesday are expected to be in the mid to low 80s. 

Some parts of the Lowcountry did get heavy flooding Monday morning due to the storm.

Horry County officials reported that some neighborhoods in their area got as much as 5 to 6 inches of rain. 

Currently, the center of Alberto is located near latitude 31.4 North, longitude 86.2 West.

The storm is moving toward the north at 12 mph.

According to the National Hurricane Center, a faster northward to north-northwestward motion is expected during the next few days.

The center of Alberto is expected to move over Alabama later Monday night and Tuesday.

After that, the system is forecasted to travel over the Tennessee Valley on Tuesday and into the Ohio Valley and Great Lakes region on Wednesday and Thursday.

There are no watches or warnings in effect for the Lowcountry in connection with Alberto.
