Beryl Regains Strength Near Charleston, South Carolina

May 30 (Bloomberg) -- Beryl gained strength today near the Charleston, South Carolina, area and may be reclassified a tropical storm later today as the system moves along the Carolinas coast, the National Hurricane Center said.

There’s a 45 percent probability that the rain-filled system becomes a tropical storm again today, 49 percent tomorrow and 59 percent on June 1, the Miami-based center said today in a 5 a.m. EDT website advisory.

Beryl, bearing 35 miles per hour (55 kilometers per hour) winds, is moving east-northeast at 14 mph and will maintain that course moving along or just off the coast of the Carolinas today, the NHC said. Dangerous surf and heavy rain is accompanying the storm, it said.

Forecasts call for Beryl to be well off North Carolina by early tomorrow as a tropical storm and continue eastward across cooler Atlantic waters far north of Bermuda into the weekend.
