Update: TD Beryl Turns North

Posted: Updated:

Tuesday, May 29


There is currently an active Tropical Cyclone in the Atlantic Basin.

(Floater 1 & 2)

Tropical Depression Beryl is located at 30.90N & 83.4W and is centered 10mi NorthWest of Valdosta, GA. Beryl has Max Sustained winds of 30mph and a Min Central pressure of 1005mb (29.68") and is moving North (360) at 2mph.

Tropical Depression Beryl is in the process of making a U-turn and heading back out to sea. The Tropical Depression is generating some deep convection in a few bands to the East and South of the Center. There is still a clearly defined center of circulation. Therefore, Beryl is still classified as a tropical cyclone. However, the center of circulation is exposed on the western side with very little convection in this area. During the past several hours, radar presentation, especially near the center, has degraded. The strongest winds, associated with Beryl, are located over water and well removed from the center of the storm.
During the next 24-36 hours, Beryl will complete its turn to the NE and will re-enter the Atlantic Ocean. While over the warm waters of the Gulf Stream and low wind shear, Beryl will regenerate and upgrade to a Tropical Storm once again. Then, Beryl will continue moving NE and begin accelerating.

The turn toward the NE with an increase in forward speed is expected later, today. This will bring the center of Beryl close to the coast of South Carolina by early Wednesday morning and back over the Atlantic waters by late Wednesday. Little change in strength is expected today. However, as Beryl approaches the coastline and accelerates, on Wednesday, the storm could develop enough to be upgraded.

At this point, no tropical warnings are in effect. However, there are flood watches and warnings in effect throughout areas that are being affected by this storm.

Elsewhere, tropical development is not expected during the next 48 hours.
