Sub Tropical Storm Beryl formed from a low pressure area off the coast of South Carolina overnight. This storm was assigned a name by the National Hurricane Center because of the potential for high wave action, tropical storm force winds and heavy rains. The storm is moving east southeast and will be impacting north eastern Florida, Georgia and South Carolina by day’s end with actual landfall later Sunday evening, May 27. Once this storm makes landfall, it will start to be directed back to the north east by an upper level system and will be downgraded to a subtropical depression and then a low pressure area by mid week. Persons in coastal north eastern Florida, Georgia and South Carolina can expect high wave action, strong rip currents, gusty winds, heavy rain in some areas and some lowlands coastal flooding. Since this storm is sub tropical in nature, this will be our only reporting of Named Storm Beryl.
