More rain for Charleston as storm Beryl circles back on Lowcountry

Image by Flickr user BSC Photography 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.

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.

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

As of 4 a.m. Tuesday, Charleston had still received only .26 inches of rain at the air base — 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 — indeed at least one swimmer has gone missing locally.
