Alberto, the first named Atlantic storm of 2018, is expected to reach land on the Gulf Coast on Monday afternoon or evening, the centre said.
A tornado or two may occur on Tuesday from southern Kentucky to parts of Georgia, the NHC reported.
"The main concern from Alberto is flooding; not so much along the immediate coast, but inland, from the heavy rains that are coming on top of over a week of rain across the southeast", said Chuck Watson, a disaster modeler at Enki Research in Savannah, Georgia.
Alberto's winds continued to slow down throughout Monday, reaching maximum sustained winds of 45 miles per hour as it made landfall in Laguna Beach, west of Panama City on the northern Gulf Coast, according to the National Hurricane Center. The storm that was expected to make landfall later Monday had maximum sustained winds of 65 miles per hour (100 kph).
Once Alberto is inland, and deprived of the warm waters that fuel tropical weather systems, the storm was expected to steadily weaken.
A subtropical storm like Alberto has a less defined and cooler center than a tropical storm, and its strongest winds are found farther from its center.
Meteorologists are calling Alberto a 'subtropical storm.' What the heck is that?
The National Hurricane Center also said that swells, which could cause life-threatening surf and rip current condition, could affect the eastern and northern Gulf Coast through Tuesday. The Florida Keys were likely to get several inches of rain.

Forecasters said Alberto could bring unsafe high water to southern coastal states when it douses an area from MS to western Georgia with up to 12 inches (30 cm) of rain and possible tornadoes. Unfortunately for Apalachicola, the maximum storm surge should arrive at this morning's high tide, resulting in a total water level roughly 3.4 feet above the normal high tide.
