Ohio Valley and Great Lakes region on Wednesday and Thursday.

Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 40 mph (65 km/h) with
higher gusts.  Continued weakening is forecast as Alberto moves
farther inland, and Alberto is expected to become a subtropical
depression later tonight, and degenerate into a remnant low by
Tuesday afternoon.

Winds of 40 mph extend outward up to 90 miles (150 km) from the
center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 995 mb (29.38 inches).
