According to the National Weather Service forecast, Tropical Depression Beryl will move northeast, bringing heavy rains and flooding to central Arkansas and the lower Ohio Valley Tuesday evening and to the lower Great Lakes and New England Wednesday.

“Widespread, heavy rain and thunderstorms are expected along and northeast of Beryl’s path over the next two days,” the NWS said. Rainfall amounts of 2 to 5 inches (5 to 12 centimeters) are expected from central Arkansas up into parts of Vermont and New Hampshire.

On Monday, Beryl unleashed a spate of severe weather in southeast Texas that killed at least four people, flooded highways, closed oil ports, canceled more than 1,300 flights and left more than 2.7 million homes and businesses without power.

According to the National Hurricane Center, Beryl, the earliest Category 5 hurricane of the season, weakened from a hurricane after devastating the Texas coastal town of Matagorda, a coastal community between Corpus Christi and Galveston. It had sustained winds of over 80 mph when it made landfall at 4 a.m. CT.

Last week, Beryl left a trail of devastation in the Caribbean, killing at least 11 people and destroying or severely damaging infrastructure on several islands. Beryl, which at one point became the earliest Category 5 hurricane on record, last made landfall in Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula on Friday morning.
