More rain for Beaufort as Beryl circles back on Lowcountry (Updated)

Winds blows sand on St. Simons in Georgia where Baryl's winds were stronger, the storm brought mostly rain and mild winds to the Lowcountry.

Update May 30: While Beryl's remnants may have doused the Lowcountry, it wasn't nearly as much as expected.

On Tuesday evening and early Wednesday, only 1 inch was recorded at the Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort and there's little more rain expected today.

However the winds did provide The Island Packet with the opportunity to score this cute photo of a kid and her umbrella at the Waterfront Park.

First reporting: So far the effects of Subtropical Storm Beryl have been largely a benefit to the Lowcountry, brining much needed rain to an area some 4 inches below average rainfall for the year.

Indeed it seems that Beryl's waves did little erosion damage to Hunting Island.

However more moisture and winds are due for the Lowcountry as the now Tropical Depression Beryl hooks back.

As of 4 a.m. Tuesday, Beaufort had still received only .43 inches of rain at the air station — however, some 4 inches of rain is expected to fall, starting this morning with the worst rains hitting tonight. Wednesday should also be generally quite wet with the rain stopping late in the evening.

Beach goers should be should still be extremely cautious of rip currents.
