Special Sunday Update on Beryl and Severe Storms

May 27, 2012; 6:15 AM ET


1. The map below is from the AccuWeather.com Mets and shows the path of Beryl into northeastern Florida. Beryl should make landfall tonight very close to Jacksonville, which is a very rare hit from a tropical system. I don't recall a storm that has come in from the Atlantic into Jacksonville. Beryl should come in as a 50-mph tropical storm and produce locally heavy rain and gusty winds. Peak winds should be between 40-60 mph and power outages are possible along the coast and about 50 miles inland. Beryl will stall out for a day or so before heading out to the northeast again across the Carolinas. It's possible the heavy rain develops across parts of the eastern Carolinas and southeastern Virginia as Beryl interacts with the front.

2. Severe storms will break out along the front today into the Plains. Main impacts will be damaging wind gusts and large hail.
