High Likelihood of Tropical Development to Impact Southeast U.S. This Weekend...

The system that traversed South Florida and Cuba yesterday (as described in this post) has since moved out over the Bahamas and the southwest Atlantic.

This system continues to organize, and there is a high likelihood that it will become Tropical Storm Beryl over the next 24-36 hours.

For those that live or have interests in the Southeastern U.S. coastal region,  please don't be lulled into a false sense of security due to the fact that the system is moving slowly East/Northeast.  All major computer models forecast this system to turn back to the Southwest and make a run at the Southeast U.S. coast by the 2nd half of this holiday weekend (i.e., Sunday and Monday).

Full coverage can be found on the Tropical Atlantic page at our sister site,  Additional information and imagery will be added to that link throughout the coming days, so please check it frequently for updates as this situation progresses.
