Beryl Cut to Tropical Depression, Hurricane Center Says

May 28 (Bloomberg) -- Beryl, the second named weather system of the Atlantic hurricane season, was downgraded to a tropical depression after making landfall and moving over northeast Florida, the National Hurricane Center said.

The weather system was about 60 miles (100 kilometers) west-northwest of Jacksonville, with maximum sustained winds of 35 miles an hour, the Miami-based center said in an advisory posted at 10:47 a.m. New York time.

Beryl is likely to turn northward later today and move to the northeast tomorrow, the center said. All coastal tropical-storm warnings have been discontinued, it said.

Beryl is “soaking portions of north Florida and South Georgia,” the advisory said, predicting “more rain to come.”

A storm becomes tropical when thunderstorm activity begins building close to the center of circulation, according to Weather Underground Inc. of Ann Arbor, Michigan. A subtropical storm usually has a large cloud-free center of circulation, Weather Underground said.

Beryl may bring 4 to 8 inches of rain, with isolated maximum amounts of 12 inches, from northern Florida through southeastern North Carolina, the center said.
