Tropical Storm Kyle was a relatively moderate tropical storm that brought torrential rainfall and devastating flooding to Georgia, and extreme southern South Carolina as it transitioned into an extratropical storm, in October 2020. Kyle originated from a low that developed north from the Cape Verde Islands, as it trekked across the Central Atlantic, before developing further into a tropical depression on October 12. The depression remained at that intensity, before strengthening two days later into Kyle, the eleventh named storm of the season. As Kyle neared the East Coast, Kyle interacted with moist and favorable conditions and strengthened further until it reached winds of 65 mph (105 km/h). Prior to landfall, Kyle lost tropical characteristics and transitioned into an extratropical storm.
