Tropical Storm Beryl made landfall just after midnight near Jacksonville Beach, FL. Beryl continues to weaken as it moves inland over northern Florida.

The long term track has Beryl moving up the East Coast and possibly re-strengthening. Beryl will likely weaken to a Tropical Depression later today or tonight as it starts to make a northerly turn. Beryl will turn northeast on Tuesday and head up the coast. If it stays over land it may not strengthen much at all but would track right over eastern NC. If it moves out over the water it would likely strengthen to a tropical storm.
