Sitting on the gulf stream, somewhat favorable wind environment = not surprised. Although, it is doubtful it gets any stronger than it already is.

ALBERTO APPEARS TO BE MAINTAINING ITS STRENGTH. SATELLITE AND RADAR
IMAGES SHOW THAT DEEP CONVECTION REFORMED NEAR THE CENTER OF THE
TROPICAL STORM OVERNIGHT WITH A BROKEN BAND OF THUNDERSTORM
ACTIVITY REMAINING TO THE NORTH OF THE CENTER. AN ASCAT PASS AROUND
0300 UTC SHOWED MAXIMUM WINDS NEAR 40 KT. BASED ON THE
SCATTEROMETER DATA AND THE RECENT INCREASE IN THUNDERSTORM
ACTIVITY...THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS HELD AT 45 KT.

Re: Trop Storm Alberto has formed off the coast of the Carolinas - earliest forming TS in the Atlantic since 2003
(AP) RALEIGH, N.C. - Tropical Storm Alberto churned off South Carolina's coastline Sunday, the first storm of its kind to form in a hurricane season that doesn't officially begin until June 1, forecasters said.


The National Hurricane Center in Miami reported at 5 a.m. EDT Sunday that Alberto, after forming Saturday in the Atlantic, was about 100 miles southeast of Charleston, S.C., and a tropical storm watch continues on that state's coast from Savannah River to the South Santee River.


Alberto was driving maximum sustained winds of 50 mph (85 kph), with higher gusts, but had changed little in strength during the early hours Sunday, the center said. But it warned coastal interests from Georgia to the North Carolina's Outer Banks to monitor Alberto's progress.


Alberto was named a tropical storm Saturday upon forming in the Atlantic. Tropical storms occasionally occur before the official June 1 start of the hurricane season.

Looks like TS Alberto being back over the warm Gulf stream is causing a flare up

TROPICAL STORM ALBERTO DISCUSSION NUMBER 8
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL AL012012
1100 AM EDT MON MAY 21 2012

ALBERTO CONTINUES TO GENERATE SOME DEEP CONVECTION...BUT THE CLOUD
PATTERN OF THE STORM IS BEGINNING TO BECOME ELONGATED EAST-
NORTHEASTWARD...WHICH IS INDICATIVE OF INCREASING SHEAR. THE
CURRENT INTENSITY IS HELD AT 35 KT FOR THIS ADVISORY...ALTHOUGH
DVORAK ESTIMATES SUGGEST A SLIGHTLY LOWER VALUE. AN AIR FORCE
HURRICANE HUNTER AIRCRAFT SHOULD PROVIDE A BETTER ESTIMATE OF THE
STRENGTH OF ALBERTO. GLOBAL MODEL PREDICTIONS SHOW A SUBSTANTIAL
INCREASE IN SHEAR OVER THE NEXT 48 HOURS AND THIS...ALONG WITH DRY
AIR SEEN IN WATER VAPOR IMAGERY...SHOULD LEAD TO WEAKENING AND
DISSIPATION IN 2-3 DAYS. THE OFFICIAL WIND SPEED FORECAST IS
SIMILAR TO THAT FROM THE PREVIOUS ADVISORY AND IS CLOSE TO THE LGEM
GUIDANCE. IT IS CERTAINLY POSSIBLE THAT ALBERTO COULD BECOME A
POST-TROPICAL CYCLONE IN 48 HOURS.

Usually, early season storms fire up in the Carib.

Wonder if Alberto was an effect of the Gulf Spill and Above-Average CONUS temps for the last couple months.
