Tropical Storm Beryl Forms In The Atlantic

Tropical Storm Beryl Forms In The Atlantic

A tropical depression has formed Thursday in the Atlantic Ocean, weather officials said.

The United States National Hurricane Centre said the system was forecast to become a tropical storm tomorrow, with gradual strengthening expected through Monday. The storm had maximum sustained winds of 35 miles per hour as it moved west at 16 miles per hour.

A tropical wave being tracked by hurricane forecasters blossomed into a depression in the Atlantic Thursday morning, but is expected to fizzle before reaching land. The government of France has issued a Tropical Storm Watch for Barbados, St. Lucia, Martinique, Guadeloupe, St. Martin, and St. Barthelemy.

The Colorado State University released its seasonal forecast, saying that the east coast and Gulf of Mexico will experience a "below average hurricane season". Beryl is expected to weaken starting on Sunday or Monday. As TD2 (likely as a Tropical Storm) approaches the Lesser Antilles by this weekend, it should feel the influence of the shear and it is possible weakening will occur.

Still, the storm is expected to impact some islands in the Caribbean even if it doesn't directly pass over them.


Currently, the storm is 2140 km from the lesser Antilles.

See the latest advisory and forecast track on the newly formed tropical depression with the First Alert Weather App. Some development of this system is possible during the next day or two while it moves westward at 10 to 15 miles per hour over the tropical Atlantic Ocean.

Hurricane-force winds from the hurricane extend only 10 miles from the center, with tropical storm force winds stretching only up to 35 miles.

In May, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration forecasters predicted that the Atlantic would produce more storms than normal during the coming season. The most recent early-July storm was Claudette on July 13, 2015.
