Tropical Storm Beryl churned near North Carolina Wednesday, but is not expected to cause any severe damage before moving out to sea.

Tropical Storm Beryl formed late Tuesday, becoming the second tropical storm of the season. The storm is expected to brush North Carolina as it continues northeast into the Atlantic.

A tropical storm watch remains in effect for coastal North Carolina from north of Cape Lookout to Currituck Beach Light.

Beryl's maximum sustained winds are at 45 miles per hour and have been strengthening in the past few hours. The storm is 105 miles east of Cape Hatteras.

The storm is currently moving north at about 7 miles per hour. While some strengthening is predicted, Tropical Storm Beryl is not expected to become a hurricane.

People along North Carolina's coast are being warned of rip currents due to Beryl. Most of the storm's heavy rains and high winds remain well offshore.
