Heavy downpours are expected to begin lashing parts of those states on Sunday.
The flood watch runs to 8 p.m. Sunday, during the period when Alberto is expected to pass closest to South Florida on its course toward the northern Gulf coast. "There's not going to be a lot of grilling or boating going on - it's going to be a messy day".

On Monday, Alberto was off the coast of Florida, moving north towards Tennessee.
Parts of Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana have already seen heavy rain this week, and further deluges could leave those areas vulnerable to flash flooding and river flooding. Tomorrow's high is 81 degrees.
Subtropical Storm Alberto continued its march toward the Florida Panhandle on Sunday with freshening winds and a shield of rain that stretched from the Emerald Coast to the Florida Keys. Some localized areas could see even higher amounts. Outside of storm chances, look for very warm and muggy highs in the mid-upper 80's. However, the moisture associated with it will create widespread showers and storms through the middle of next week.

A flood watch has been extended for all of South Florida until Monday, forecasters say, confirming that Memorial Day will indeed be a wet one.
The bulk of rainfall is expected to remain offshore through Monday morning as drier air filters in over the area from the southwest. Unsafe surf and rip current conditions were also likely to occur.
Alberto, the first named Atlantic storm of 2018, which spun up days before the formal June 1 start of the hurricane season, was packing maximum sustained winds near 65 miles per hour (105 kph) and was expected to drop as much as 12 inches (30 cm) of rain, slamming an area from MS to western Georgia, the Miami-based hurricane center said. Gradual strengthening is forecast until the system reaches the northern Gulf Coast.
A news release from Florida Gov. Rick Scott said that for Taylor County, "Voluntary evacuations have been issued for those in coastal zones and beach communities (Keaton, Dekel, Cedar, Dark Islands), mobile homes, RV parks and low-lying areas".
With conditions expected to worsen overnight, officials are encouraging people planning to check out Monday to give themselves extra time.
