I didn't intend to appear to downplay T.S. Alberto's ultimate impact, I was simply speaking from a standpoint of relative to what we will potentially be facing later in the season. On my website at http://www.kn4lf.com/flwx1.htm I have posted within the 10:30 am EDT advisory the following:
"Beginning today deep tropical moisture and numerous rain showers and a few thunderstorms should engulf the whole of peninsular Florida, with torrential rainfall totals of 4-8" and attendant localized urban flooding "possibly" occurring into Tuesday 06/13/06. Tornadoes will also be a minor to moderate threat due to increasing helicity values."
By the way I had a fast moving broken line of squally thunderstorms move through my area in Lakeland beginning at approximately 1:49 pm. Though I only measured 0.14" of rainfall I did see a wind gust of 30 mph.
