Subtropical Storm Beryl Arrives
A few hours ago, the National Hurricane Center up’d its Tropical Weather Outlook to a 100% chance that Invest 94L would become Subtropical Storm Beryl…and it has! As of 11pm ET, Subtropical Storm Beryl has formed, and it’s information and track are below:
- Current winds: 45 mph
- Current location: 32.5N 74.8W
- Movement: North at 9 mph
- Minimum central pressure: 1001 millibars
- Watches/Warnings: Tropical Storm Warning from the Volusia/Brevard county line in FL to Edisto Beach, SC; Tropical Storm Watch from Edisto Beach, SC to South Santee River, SC
- Heavy rain for coastal South Carolina, Southern Georgia, and northern Florida
- Rip currents are possible along the Florida east coast and the southern Georgia coastline; Getting in the Water is NOT advised
- Gusty winds are likely from Savannah to the Space Coast throughout the holiday weekend along the coastline and at sea; tropical storm warnings mean that winds of 40 mph or greater are expected within 36 hours; tropical storm watches mean that winds of 40 mph or greater are possible within 48 hours
- Boating is NOT advised until at least Tuesday; Seas could reach 6-9 feet near the center of STS Beryl
The only years that had the second tropical storm of the season BEFORE hurricane season were 1887 and 1908!
