There’s little doubt in my mind we’re on the verge of seeing Tropical Storm Beryl form in the Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of the Southeast. An area of low pressure is becoming better-defined just north of the Bahamas and that trend is likely to continue thru Friday. As upper-level winds become more-favorable, we could see a tropical cyclone form by the end of Friday, or at least by Saturday morning. Below is a look at our FutureTrack model, showing a potent area of low pressure off the coast of the Carolinas Saturday morning.
Most computer models agree on a west or WSW track on Sunday into Monday, taking the system into either South Carolina or Georgia. Heavy rainfall will be the main threat, but at least rain is needed in that part of the country. We’ll keep tracking this disturbance and every other one that follows this year.
