An early tropical storm drenched Florida earlier this week, leaving as much as 10 inches of of rain in some spots. Tropical Storm Beryl has since been downgraded, but continued to bring wet weather to the North Carolina shore on Wednesday. Above, the storm as it appeared around noon on Memorial Day, as captured by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA's Terra satellite.
