STORMTRACK 3: Beryl makes landfall over Florida, rain to head our way Wednesday.

Monday, May 28th, 2012

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Tropical Storm Beryl plowed into north Florida Sunday night, passing directly over Jacksonville as a strong Tropical Storm with winds up to 70 mph. 

As of Monday morning, the storm continue to make its way inland over Florida, slowly moving to the west. Beryl is expected to continue weakening, eventually into a tropical depression with weaker winds. She 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. A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for parts of Georgia and Florida.

Stay tuned to WWAY for updates, and head to Hurricanes 101.

NC musician Doc Watson remains critical

Monday, May 28th, 2012

WINSTON-SALEM, NC (AP) — Grammy-winning folk musician Doc Watson remains in critical condition at a North Carolina hospital after undergoing colon surgery last week.

A spokeswoman at Baptist Hospital in Winston-Salem said Sunday that Watson was still in critical condition.

The 89-year-old Watson’s daughter, Nancy, says that the musician fell a week ago.

The blind singer and guitarist has won several Grammys, including a lifetime achievement award. He also received the National Medal of the Arts.

Watson is known as a master of the flatpicking style of guitar playing. He also started Merlefest, an annual gathering of musicians in Wilkesboro named after his son, who died in a tractor accident in 1985.
