What’s left of Tropical Depression Beryl continues to soak southeast Georgia after ruining Memorial Day plans along the Georgia and Florida coasts Monday.
The National Hurricane Center’s 5 a.m. advisory centered Beryl about 10 miles northwest of Valdosta, with winds at 30 miles-an-hour winds and a few higher gusts. The storm is inching north at 2 miles per hour, but forecasters said it will turn northeast and pick up speed later Tuesday.
Beryl is not expected to strengthen for the remainder of Tuesday but could intensify a bit as it moves toward the South Carolina coastline Wednesday.
Mostly, the storm is bringing much-needed rain to an area parched with drought.
