Subtropical Storm Beryl to move through North Florida Sunday and Monday

Subtropical storm Beryl maintained its position Saturday in the Atlantic Ocean about 300 miles northeast of Jacksonville with forecasts showing it moving west toward the Florida Panhandle today.

The storm prompted officials to issue a tropical storm warning Saturday from Volusia County and all counties to the north as it headed west at a speed of 6 mph.

It was expected to move over Jacksonville by this afternoon before sweeping through the Panhandle and going north through Georgia by Monday afternoon, according to Bay News 9 meteorologist Diane Kacmarik.

A 60 percent chance of rain was forecast for today through Tuesday in the Tampa Bay area as a result of the storm.

"We'll probably get through Sunday afternoon okay, but after that the rain will pick up," Kacmarik said.

The storm will also create wind gusts of more than 20 mph, Kacmarik said.
