(Jacksonville, FL) Tropical Storm Beryl Forms.
Bottom line for the First Coast:
No direct impacts expected. The storm will draw some dry air across the area through at least Wednesday, possibly Thursday putting a lid on most of the shower/thunderstorm activity. Higher seas, surf should generally stay farther north up the coast.
Beryl continues to organize. Beryl should continue to steadily increase & it's not out of the realm of possibility that it becomes a hurricane. Shear is weak & the storm will be crossing the gulf stream the next 24-36 hours. The only limiting factor could be some dry continental air over the Eastern U.S.
