 TPC ATLANTIC ALBERTO 2000 TROPICAL CYCLONE REPORT
Alberto was a long-lived Cape Verde hurricane that remained at sea through its lifetime.
Alberto's track included intensifying into a hurricane three times, a large anticyclonic loop that took five days, and extratropical transition near 53°N. a.
The official intensity forecast errors for Alberto were 5, 7, 8, 11, and 14 kt for 12, 24, 36, 48, and 72 h.

Three hurricanes were considered major this year (a category three or higher on the Saffir/Simpson Scale with sustained winds of 111 mph or higher).
Hurricane Alberto was the third longest-lived tropical cyclone in the Atlantic Basin on record, and the longest-lived tropical cyclone ever to form in the month of August.
While the hurricane was accelerating near 40 degrees north latitude, satellite estimates gave an intensity of about 75 mph, however, a ship just east of the center reported sustained winds of 100 mph, causing the Tropical Prediction Center to quickly upgrade Michael to a category two hurricane.

Alberto actually increased in strength a couple of times while the water temperatures were decreasing under its path, illustrating the dominance of vertical shear on the intensification process of tropical cyclones.
Alberto maintained minimal hurricane status until 1800 UTC on the 8th when it took a turn to the northwest into even cooler waters and weakened into a tropical storm.
Alberto slowed down and weakened some as it was moving over SSTs of about 23 C. The hurricane diminished and became a sheared tropical storm on the 14th.

The 2000 Atlantic Hurricane Season will be long remembered for several mid and late season storms that formed throughout the Atlantic Basin along with the devastation caused by Hurricane Keith in October.
