TS Beryl

Tropical Storm Beryl is weakening this morning over northern Florida - see visible satellite image above. Beryl was first identified as a subtropical storm because of its direct association with an upper-tropospheric low. However, during the past 36 hours, NHC reclassified it as a tropical storm as it became somewhat independent of the upper-low and acquired warm core characteristics with maximum vorticity at low-levels. A very interesting evolution for this system. Radar-estimated rainfall (below) indicates possible amounts over  north-central Florida near 4".

There is also a large area of deep convection over the east Pacific this morning (below). There seems to be a bit of circulation associated with this cluster, however, NHC does not expect any development during the next couple of days.
