Beryl (02L) Transitioning into Extratropical Cyclone32.1N 81W
After moving ashore, Beryl (02L) quickly weakened to a tropical depression. Due to the weakening of the ridge to the north, the storm slowed and dropped heavy rainfall along its path. An approaching cold front turned Beryl to the north and northeast on May 29, and despite being well inland, the depression retained enough convection to remain a tropical cyclone.
As Beryl approached the Atlantic Ocean on May 30, its convection increased to the south and east of the center, although the intrusion of dry air resulted in a ragged appearance on satellite imagery. The approaching front caused the depression to accelerate northeastward. Beryl’s circulation became elongated and its associated convection spread northward, suggesting the transition into an extratropical cyclone.
