Tropical Depression Beryl

Posted: Updated:

...BERYL STILL ALIVE...

Tropical Depression Beryl is located just west-southwest of Valdosta, Georgia. Maximum winds remain near 30 mph and the storm is moving toward the northwest at 5 mph. Beryl still has some deep convection and well-defined banding features, therefore, very little weakening is expected into Tuesday.

Beryl is expected to feel a significant disturbance pass to the north across the Great Lakes and begin moving back toward the northeast and emerge back over the Atlantic Wednesday. Beryl may regain tropical status but that will be short-lived. Then, Beryl will be a concern to the shipping lanes of the North Atlantic.

With two named storms before the official start of hurricane season on June 1st, 2012 takes its place with only two other years with such an active beginning. In 1908 ten named storms formed in the Atlantic Basin. In 1887 there were 19 named storms documented. What's going to happen in 2012? Only time will tell but I'll give you my outlook later this week.

I hope your day back at work tomorrow is good.
