STORMTRACK 3: Beryl makes landfall over FL, will head our way Wednesday
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Beryl plowed into north Florida Sunday night, passing directly over Jacksonville as a strong Tropical Storm with winds up to 70 mph.
Now, the storm is simply a tropical depression as it continues to make its way inland over Florida, slowly moving to the west. Beryl will gradually meander into southern Georgia through Tuesday. A cold front from the west will pick up the remnants of Beryl and accelerate the storm northward. This means we can expect whatever is left of Beryl to head our way by Wednesday morning.
Here’s what we expect. For today and tomorrow, we’ll still see some sunshine across the area, but a few tropical rainbands will send showers and storms onshore from time to time. By Wednesday morning, we’ll experience a period of heavy rain, with some gusty (but not severe) winds. Moisture from Beryl will leave us quickly Wednesday afternoon, with some dry air building in. Dangerous rip currents will remain a concern at the beaches.
There are currently no watches/warnings in effect for our area.
Stay tuned to WWAY for updates, and head to Hurricanes 101.
