Subtropical Storm Beryl Brings Changes

Beryl brings a change to our weather.

Beryl is now located about 120 miles from Brunswich GA and moving west at around 7 mph, and is expected to make landfall later this afternoon near the GA/FL border. You can see from this satellite view exactly where Beryl is located and can see that the outer fringes of the storm are just now arriving at the Georgia coastline. The bands of greatest rainfall currently are in the south and east quadrents of the storm. You can zoon in on this NEXRAD Level II radar image and see the circulation of Beryl as it moves west. 

We are unfortunately going to be on the NW side of this system which means that the heaviest rains will be to our south and east. Most folks in central Georgia won't be complaining though as they are in desperate need for rainfall.

Winds will begin to pick up later this afternoon as Beryl comes ashore, though should remain below Wind Advisory criteria. 

Beryl is forecast to make an abrupt turn to the NE sometime late Monday/Tuesday and slowly lift out of our area in advance of an approaching cold front. 

So we will be in store for an off and on rainy period for the Monday through Friday timeframe. Cloud cover will help to moderate our temperatures somewhat and by the time a cold front passes on Friday, we will fall be to slightly below normal readings for this time of year.

LOL! Kevin, are you being insubordinate again?

Yes indeed! :-)) I'll try to be good again, I promise! Beryl is still moving slight south of west at about 10 mph with maximum wind speeds of around 63 mph. For us, it all hinges on how far west the storm goes before turning northeast. We should hope for further west, at least to the Alabama border, before turning. Otherwise we will be left high and dry with only a slight chance of rain. There will be a very sharp cut-off of rainfall to the NW side of the storm, just a few miles one way or the other will make a big difference in the amount of rainfall for some people.

Happy Memorial Day! This morning at 5am, Beryl was located 20 miles west of Jacksonville and 85 miles ESE of Valdosta with winds of 50 mph, and Beryl is still moving west at 8 mph. Nothing has changed as far as the forecast track, at least for now. Our best chances for rain in our area will be on Tuesday, when moisture from Beryl provides energy for an advancing cold front. I've added another image that shows the rainfall totals since Beryl approached Florida yesterday. Most of the heavy rainfall occurred offshore so far, but some inland areas can still expect to see 4-8" before it's all over. If you'd like to see it full size, here's the link: http://www.daculaweather.com/images/2012_05/beryl_rainfall.png Winds will be the biggest threat but even those will be diminishing. For us, expect breezy conditions all day, especially south of I-85. This should be the last decent day until next weekend, so get out and enjoy it while you can! Maybe we'll see you at the Memorial Day parade in Dacula!

Here's a GRLevel 3 radar loop from the Moody AFB (Valdosta) radar: http://www.daculaweather.com/grlevel4/4_ga-state_moodyafb_vax_br248.php

Our winds are are bringing a nice cool flow of moisture off of the Atlantic ocean this morning and is the reason for the low level clouds. This flow will continue all day and help to keep the temperatures down a little. Great weather for a parade!

Radar is indicating some showers developing to our east and moving our direction. I wouldn't be surprised to see a few showers move through here in the next few hours as the day time heating is helping to trigger the development. I have to say, the weather was great for the parade today, some of the best i can remember. Mostly cloudy skies and breezy conditions lasted until the parade was over. I should have a video of most of the parade up on YouTube this afternoon.
