"Subtropical" Storm Beryl Taking Aim on Southeast U.S....

As expected, the system over the southwest Atlantic has reorganized and is now called "Beyrl". Because the system is currently made up of both an upper-level and surface low pressure system, sort of a hybrid, if you will, it has been technically classified as a "subtropical storm".  

This is really a technical/meteorological distinction only, and folks in the path of this system should regard it just as they would any other tropical storm.  As such, all of the watch and warning products issued by the National Hurricane Center are also termed "Tropical Storm" as well.

If you have outdoor plans, especially from the northern Florida coast across the Georgia coast and the South Carolina coast this weekend, please pay very close attention to the progress of this system.
