TD Beryl poised to soak most of the Triangle

Beryl's circulation and shield of rain strengthened overnight as her center hugs the coast moving NE.  Radar indicates heavy rain and thunderstorms emanating far from center.   It appears that the Triangle, particularly east of Highway 64 is poised for excessive rainfall, 2-4".  In the National Weather Service Radar image below , the banding features on the north side of the center are clearly visible.

Unfortunately the timing of the rain will impact rush hour.  The pre-frontal trough which Beryl is merging is already dumping moderate rain on the Durham area just west of RDU.  This sets the stage for a tough drive to work as rain caused slowdowns will build quickly.  Be patient and safe when driving this morning.
