‘Surprising’ Beryl Ramps Up to Tropical Storm Level

Subtropical Storm Alberto came ashore on the Florida Panhandle in late May. Despite this early season activity some forecasters are expecting the rest of the season to be below average

Tropical Storm Chris formed off a tropical depression along the Carolinas' coast early Sunday morning as Beryl remained a storm, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Right now, the National Hurricane Center is not tracking any tropical depressions or storms.

Beryl won't have much impact to anyone, it's a tiny storm drifting through a very unfriendly environment for storms it is surrounded by dry air and high wind shear.

At 11 p.m., the center of Tropical Storm Beryl was located near latitude 13.1 North, longitude 54.3 West. Beryl is moving toward the west-northwest near 18 miles per hour and this motion with an increase in forward speed is expected during the next couple of days.

Given the development of the storms with this disturbance as seen by satellite, the National Hurricane Center says there's a high 70 percent chance of developing into at least a depression.

The system is expected to deteriorate before moving closer to Peurto Rico in the coming days.

Trump does have leverage, in the sense that all of these countries depend far more on exports than the United States does. The White House said it would consult on tariffs on the other $US16b of products, and would apply these later.

As of 2:30 p.m. ET Thursday, Beryl had winds of 40 miles per hour and was moving to the west at 16 miles per hour.

Tropical Storm Beryl, a compact, fast-moving system, continued to intensify Thursday and could become a hurricane in the coming days. 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. Beryl is then forecast to possibly fall apart in the eastern Caribbean Sea as it encounters unfavorable conditions early next week.

The storm was forecast to weaken into a depression Monday by the time it reaches seas just south of Puerto Rico, which was devastated by Hurricane Maria in September, but that island remained under a state of emergency.

The hurricane center is giving the low a 30 percent chance of development within the next two days and a 40 percent chance over the next five days.

Forecasters noted that remnants of the storm could bring heavy rains and winds in portions of the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico.

A second area of disturbed weather was located between the U.S. East Coast and Bermuda on Thursday.
