Tropical Storm Beryl is not only expected to dump torrential rain on the southeastern coast, but also complicate holiday weekend traffic as people try to head home.

Forecasters say brisk winds and possible flooding are also in the mix today.
The National Hurricane Center in Miami reported Sunday evening that Beryl had maximum sustained winds of 70 mph, just below hurricane-strength, which is 75 mph. Forecasters said Beryl is not expected to strengthen much more before landfall late Sunday or early Monday, after which it should weaken steadily.

As of 8 p.m. EDT, the storm was about 75 miles east of Jacksonville, Fla. The hurricane center said the Jacksonville pier was already reporting winds of 50 mph. Beryl was moving westward at 10 mph.

Tropical storm warnings were in effect for the entire Georgia coastline, as well as parts of Florida and South Carolina.
