Tropics quite busy for early July with hurricane Beryl and now TD #3

Things are getting busy now in the Atlantic as we track two systems: hurricane Beryl and newly designated tropical depression #3 off the NC coast.

I have prepared a short video summary of both systems and posted it here. Feel free to share as you see fit – especially for those friends and family who might be heading to the beach this weekend along the North Carolina coast. I am worried about an increase in rip currents from the developing storm off the coast – a hazard that is often overlooked when it comes to understanding tropical cyclones.

I’ll post another video discussion here tomorrow afternoon.
