Beryl is holding steady with sustained winds of 60 mph and NHC is taking notice. With the latest advisory, there are now tropical storm warnings for Cape Cod and the Islands, and watches are up westerward to central Long Island the the Connecticut coast, including New Haven where I am located. Yay!
Visible imagery looks more impressive that the infrared at this point. There is clearly a very strong circulation and no signs of extratropical transition. The outer bands are already approaching the Northeast.
All models have now locked on to a hit on Cape Cod. However, damage here is not likely to be high. This area is used to taking much worse storms than this during winter Nor'easters. The only difference with this storm will be that the trees still contain leaves and could suffer more damage.
