From the National Hurricane Center’s 11 a.m. update about Tropical Depression Beryl (just downgraded from a tropical storm):
ALL COASTAL TROPICAL STORM WARNINGS HAVE BEEN DISCONTINUED.[. . .]
LOCATED NEAR LATITUDE 30.5 NORTH…LONGITUDE 82.7 WEST. THE DEPRESSION IS MOVING TOWARD THE WEST-NORTHWEST NEAR 6 MPH…9 KM/H. A TURN TO THE NORTH IS EXPECTED LATER TODAY…FOLLOWED BY A SLOW TURN TO THE NORTHEAST ON TUESDAY. ON THE FORECAST TRACK…THE DEPRESSION WILL CONTINUE TO MOVE OVER NORTHERN FLORIDA AND SOUTHEASTERN GEORGIA TODAY AND TUESDAY. [. . .]
BERYL IS EXPECTED TO PRODUCE TOTAL RAIN ACCUMULATIONS OF 4 TO 8 INCHES…WITH ISOLATED MAXIMUM AMOUNTS OF 12 INCHES…FROM NORTHERN FLORIDA THROUGH SOUTHEASTERN NORTH CAROLINA.
So: potential for heavy rains, dangerous surf and some coastal flooding — though both abating somewhat, high winds — but those too are abating.
The updated forecast map has the tropical depression passing just to the north of Savannah on its way back out to see. I’ve gotten a little much-needed rain here at my house, but not nearly as much as some locales south of Savannah appear to have gotten. For much of the morning, there was a strong band of rain not far off the coast of Tybee, but it largely fizzled as it rotated inland.
And for those wondering why I’ve made all these Beryl posts: I’m a stormwatcher and I check the NHC updates every 3 hours if I’m awake and it’s convenient, plus I’m frustrated that other outlets either aren’t giving updated information about the storm or aren’t including appropriate graphics.
