Tropical Storm Beryl closed in on the southeastern U.S. coast on Sunday, dumping rain and whipping up heavy surf from northern Florida to South Carolina.

The second named storm of the 2012 Atlantic hurricane season is expected to make landfall with possible wind gusts to hurricane force, according to the U.S. Hurricane Centre.

Computer forecast models show Beryl moving on an eventual path back out over the Atlantic after coming ashore, posing no threat to U.S. oil and gas installations in the Gulf of Mexico.

Forecasters say it is expected to weaken to a depression by Monday night.
