Tropical Storm Beryl could snarl holiday traffic

Tropical Storm Beryl threatens to snarl Memorial Day traffic after making landfall in Fla. By The Associated Press

Tropical Storm Beryl threatens to snarl traffic on Memorial Day as it brings drenching rain, winds and the possibility of flooding to the southeastern U.S. coast.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center says the storm made landfall in Florida early Monday near Jacksonville Beach around 12:10 a.m. with near-hurricane-strength winds of 70 mph (113 kph).

The weather system is expected to continue dumping rain over parts of Florida and Georgia on Monday. It's forecast to weaken as it moves inland Monday and Tuesday, and as a frontal system comes down from the Great Lakes, Beryl is expected to move out into the Atlantic Ocean.

A tropical storm warning remains in effect for coastal areas from Flagler Beach, Fla. to Edisto Beach, S.C.
