Beryl: landfall 70 mph Jax Bch 12:10 AM 5/28 TS warnings lifted S SC to N FL

112 posts in this topic

Dewpoints along the SE coast are high for late May, near 70, which favors tropical. Also, offshore SST's are in the high 70's, which is warmer than average for late May.

Beryl looks to be steered west by the Bermuda high and then will eventually turn eastward as the upper level trough phases east. It will be interesting to see whether or not she restrengthens upon being steered out over the Gulf Stream again.

This is still looking like some nice rain potential for Southern GA and North Florida...I've also noticed that the 700mb RH was significantly higher in the Carolinas on tonight's NAM and GFS...but still paltry on QPF.

I'm thinking we may get an easterly push to the North of Beryl on Sunday/Monday. There should be quite a bit of moisture available for any daytime heating away from the tight core of Beryl.

It's modeled to have a very tight core, so unless you are within 50 mi of the landfall point, I wouldn't expect more than .5-1" of rain, which is still needed.

May/June activity is uncorrelated to Aug/Sep/Oct activity.

I know, which is why I said it might not mean anything (as in probably won't) I've been around a while you know ;):P

That wasn't really my main point though, it's when was the last time have had 2 named storms before the start of the season? ( Which to me is impressive, regardless of how the rest of the season goes.) Anyone?

As for your other point, you are right. It's a tight system and combined with a less than stellar moist environment surrounding it, rainfall won't be huge very far from the center. My only point here was that for a tropical/subtropical system, which normally produces a fairly decent (to of course great at times) rainfall area, this one is going to be pretty dry. I do think areas close to the center will get more then 0.50 to 1 inch though but we'll see.

Good morning fellow Southeasterners. Stepping out to get my morning paper, it's quite evident we're under the influence of Beryl here on Cape Fear, N.C.

No, it's not storming -- but it's clearly not a normal morning either. Typically at 7:00 am the wind is about 5 mph or less but this morning there's a pleasant 15 mph breeze. But what really stands out is the sky. The first thing I noticed was the sky is full of those broken, light and dark milky colored ill-defined clouds -- and they're not just drifting, their moving. The sky looks like it's in a hurry to get somewhere!

Okay, that's it from here. Y'all have a great weekend; and I look forward to reports from others as the weekend progresses.

I am down near Amelia island this weekend. Lots of talk but so far still really nice outside lol. I wouldn't mind a storm hitting while I am already here but it's not looking too impressive at the moment

My cousins are at St. Simons Island this week. I'm pretty jealous of the forecast...

Tropical storm conditions expected. Showers and thunderstorms likely. Cloudy, with a low around 74. East wind 33 to 43 mph, with gusts as high as 60 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70%.

From what I was able to dig up, the last time this occur was way back in 1887... so yea its been a while.

As for the second statement Adam made, I wouldn't go as far to say this system is very tight. There is quite a large wind swath forecasted from the ECMWF. Perhaps the other models have a different take, but this doesn't scream to me a small system. This is not that unusual considering the subtropical origin either.

Not much westward component of motion last five hours and little motion at all last few hours. Note the lack of surface high pressure to its north, which means not much westward steering at the lower levels right now. I'm wondering if the models are assuming too much west motion for today. I've seen this kind of thing in the past when surface high pressure to the north is pretty weak. Perhaps this will mean an overall slower movement toward the U.S. vs. the NHC track. We'll see.

I still wouldn't rule out the idea of it never making shore...and with it being a skeleton anyway, it wouldn't be that big a deal anyway if it turns out.

The GFS IMO has a much better handle than the NAM.

The best thing about the storm is the "cooler" temps because of the on shore wind direction. RDU had stated the temps would have much higher if the storm had not formed. I say keep it off the coast as long as possible.

It could be that with all the convection on the east side of the center is being is what is causing it to be slowed or even tugged a bit in that direction so it could be that you are correct IRT timing as these little nuances are really hard to predict in weaker storms. Makes me wonder if maybe it hugs the coast and or just gets inland and doesnt make it as far south as north Florida.

Beryl is beginning to wrap the storms around its center and it appears to be moving again but with the storms wrapping the center its kinda hard to tell. I have trouble seeing this make it as far SW as the current NHC track has it at, if anything it looks to be moving due west albeit really slowly. Prolly gonna be TS Beryl at 5 instead of STS Beryl I would think, maybe see winds increased to 50 in light of the storms around the center.

Tomorrow's forecast. Should be fun!
