Tropical Storm Beryl

The second storm of the season went from a tropical depression to Tropic Storm Beryl today. While it won’t bring any relief or rain to the furnace that is called the Deep South, it looks like my Southern brothers and sisters on the East Coast may be more fortunate (as the storm is unlikely, at this point, to become a major storm threat). WunderBloger meteorologist Dr. Jeff Masters’ says, “A Category 1 hurricane is certainly a good possibility by Thursday morning, as the storm should stay over the warm waters of the Gulf Stream until then. Once the storm gets north of Cape Hatteras North Carolina, the chances for continued intensification lessen, since water temperatures are in the 70s close to the coast.” (Why are tropical storms on a God-talk blog?
