South Carolina Seeing Much Needed Rain from Beryl

The remnants of Tropical Storm Beryl are skimming the South Carolina coast as the system moves northeast and eventually out to sea.

The National Hurricane Center says the tropical depression got a bit stronger overnight and now has winds of about 35 mph. The 5 a.m. advisory Hurricane Center advisory put the center of circulation between Charleston and Georgetown.

The system is expected to move along the coast of the Carolinas before moving over the Atlantic later Wednesday. That's when Beryl is expected to regain tropical storm strength.

Forecasters say the storm could mean 3 to 6 inches of rain along its path with isolated amounts of up to 8 inches. Isolated tropical storm wind gusts are expected along the coast and rip currents will again be a problem. is dedicated to serving the agricultural industry in the Carolinas and Virginia with the latest ag news, exclusive regional weather station readings, and key crop market information.
