Hurricane Beryl takes aim at eastern Caribbean

Ismael LynchJul 08, 2018

A tropical depression strengthened into Tropical Storm Beryl on Thursday afternoon, the National Hurricane Center said.

As of 1 p.m. Saturday, Beryl was located at 12.4 North, 51.9 West, or about 665 miles east-southeast of the Lesser Antilles.

THE LATEST ON T.D.THREE: As of 5 p.m.Saturday, T.D. Three had maximum sustained winds of 35 miles per hour.

The Met Office assured the public however that the country is not under any tropical storm watch or warning. "Again, it's a little uncertain at this time, so we'll just have to keep an eye on it", Loewenthal explained.

"The estimated minimum central pressure is 1004 mb (29.65 inches)". Tropical Depression Two was, however, expected to dissipate east of the Lesser Antilles over the weekend, the NHC said. This disturbance is forecast to move westward or west-northwestward at 15 to 20 miles per hour over the tropical Atlantic Ocean. A fast westward to west-northwestward motion is expected through the weekend of July 7 and 8. A west-northwest trajectory would steer this disturbance into an area that won't really favor any tropical development.

The Atlantic high pressure ridge will continue to influence a moderate easterly wind flow across the region.

As far as the low-pressure system offshore, it has a 70-percent chance of cyclone development over the next two days, increasing the likelihood of showers and thunderstorms, according to a Friday morning National Hurricane Center weather outlook.

A forecaster for AccuWeather.com said the storm will break apart due to strong wind shear as well as dry air and dust.

Colorado State University forecasters Philip Klotzbach and Michael Bell now say they expect 11 named tropical storms in the 2018 season. The odds of this wave becoming an organized tropical system over the next 5 days sits at 50%. It forms when sea temperatures in the tropical Pacific are warmer than average, and cause higher speed, high-level winds across the southern United States, reducing tropical storm formation.
