Beryl will continue to unload drought-quenching rainfall in part of the South today, taking a path parallel to the Carolina coast.
Tropical Rainstorm Beryl has delivered over a foot of rain to parts of northern Florida. A gauge near Midway, Fla. has received 12.65 inches of rain from Beryl as of 6:30 A.M. EDT May 29, 2012.
While less intense amounts of rain are expected looking ahead as Beryl begins to pick up forward speed, both beneficial and disruptive downpours can occur.
Downpours will roll across the cities of Raleigh, Wilmington and New Bern, N.C. and Virginia Beach and Norfolk, Va. along the way.
Enough rain can fall to significantly impact existing drought conditions in a positive way. However, there can also be a few incidents of flash and urban flooding.
Beryl nearly became a hurricane before making landfall near Jacksonville, Fla., early on Monday morning. Beryl was downgraded to a tropical rainstorm during the midday hours Monday as it moved inland over northern Florida.
However, even as Beryl loses wind velocity and circulation the next couple of days, localized torrential downpours and locally severe thunderstorms are forecast begins to drift northeastward.
According to Meteorologist Joseph P. Sobel, Ph.D., "The risk of localized severe thunderstorms are most likely to occur on the storm's eastern and southern side."
Since the system will still be close enough to the coast to grab moisture, rainfall on the order of several additional inches is possible in portions of northern and central Florida to coastal North Carolina through the middle of the week.
It is possible that Beryl will regain some strength later this week, after the system turns well out to sea, off Cape Hatteras, N.C.
This region was foretold as a potential trouble spot and breeding area for tropical activity for the latter part of May. The disturbance that spawned Beryl originated from this region last week.
