Tropical Storm Beryl strengthening in the Tropics

Tropical Storm Beryl strengthening in the Tropics

Tropical Depression Two, which could become Tropical Storm Beryl, was located about 1,385 east-southeast of the Lesser Antilles and is moving west at 35 miles per hour.

As of 5 p.m. ET Friday, Beryl had winds of 80 miles per hour and was moving to the west at 15 miles per hour.

At this point, the National Hurricane Center is forecasting the storm to maintain category 1 strength as it nears the Lesser Antilles.

However, it is forecast to lose its intensity over the weekend.

The next tropical storm of the season will be named Beryl.

"Places like the Lesser Antilles watch out because you could feel the effect of this by the weekend". Upper level winds ahead the system are likely to weaken it before it reaches the Leeward or Windward Islands late this weekend.

At 11 a.m., the center of Tropical Depression Three was located near latitude 33.1 North, longitude 74.8 West, about 150 miles south-southeast of Cape Hatteras.

The government set up a liaison unit in the crisis management center of the prime minister's office to gather information. An emergency heavy rain warning is issued in anticipation of extreme downpours that occur only once in several decades.

The year's first named storm, Alberto, hit in late May.

Nearly on cue, just days after Philip Klotzbach and the Tropical Meteorology Project at Colorado State announced a decrease in the seasonal forecast for Atlantic tropical cyclone activity, we've seen two systems develop in the Atlantic.

Sea conditions are expected to remain slight to moderate for the next few days.

In May, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration forecasters predicted the Atlantic would produce more storms than normal during the coming season.

We are also watching a cluster of storms just east of The Carolinas.

Meteorologist Domenica Davis said the first storm closer to the east side of the Atlantic has 40 percent of developing into a tropical cyclon.

A tropical disturbance between west Africa and the Lesser Antilles may become a tropical depression today, one of two systems behind monitored, neither of them likely to pose a significant threat to land in the days ahead.
