Miami - A forecaster at the National Hurricane Center says Tropical Storm Alberto will likely get bigger, but "not much additional strengthening is anticipated."

The first named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season developed today in the eastern Gulf of Mexico. Alberto has top steady winds near 45 miles-per-hour. That's up ten miles-per-hour from this morning.

A forecaster says Alberto is bringing "heavy rainfall that is probably going to be across much of the Florida peninsula." Experts say it probably won't reach hurricane strength. The storm is several hundred miles west of Key West and is moving to the northwest.

Forecasters expect it to swing into central or northern Florida early Tuesday.
