The Weather Authority continues to monitor the events of Tropical Storm Alberto, the first named storm of the 2024 hurricane season.

According to the Weather Authority Meteorologist Juliana Mejia, “As Alberto makes its way onto the shores of Mexico with winds reaching around 45 mph, the storm will gradually weaken throughout Thursday.”

According to the National Hurricane Center’s 10 a.m. Thursday update: Alberto had diminished to a tropical depression with 35 mph sustained winds.

Alberto is expected to become a post-tropical storm by the late afternoon.

The heavy rainfall associated with the tropical storm will diminish throughout the day across southern Texas.

The Associated Press reported that three people in Mexico had died due to the impacts of Tropical Storm Alberto.

AP sources then mentioned that “Mexican authorities downplayed the risk posed by Alberto and instead pinned their hopes on its ability to ease the parched region’s water needs.”
