Tropical Depression Beryl to begin Northeast movement (4am CDT Update)

After moving west over parts of Florida and Georgia, Tropical Depression Beryl is expected to turn to the northeast later today.

As of 5am Eastern (4am Central), the center of Beryl was located just 10 miles to the west of Valdosta, Georgia. It is moving very slowly at the present time, creeping northward at only 2 miles per hour.

It is still categorized as a Tropical Depression, packing sustained winds of 30 miles per hour, with occasionally higher gusts.

Although immediate strengthening is not expected, as it moves across South Carolina and back towards the Atlantic Ocean, Beryl could regain strength. It does have the potential of becoming a Tropical Storm once again while over the water.

At the current time, the main threat from Beryl is rain. According to forecasters at the National Hurricane Center, some places could see 5 to 10 inches of rain, with a few areas seeing totals even higher than that. The places expected to see the most rain include northern portions of Florida and southeastern areas of Georgia.

Isolated tornadoes remain a threat, albeit a low one, with some of the bands of the storm. Several storms have prompted tornado warnings over the past 24 hours.
