Tiny Hurricane Beryl continues west; Tropical Depression Three forms off east coast

New predictions for hurricanes, storms in the Caribbean this season National Hurricane Center monitoring two tropical disturbances

Our first hurricane of the 2018 Atlantic Season, Beryl, has already been downgraded to a tropical storm. It's moving west at 15 mph and located about 1,045 miles east-southeast of the Lesser Antilles.

The newly formed tropical storm is now over 1 200 miles east-southeast of the Windward Islands, moving west-northwest. Additional strengthening is forecast, and Beryl could become a hurricane by Friday or Saturday. After which, it is forecast to become an open trough East of the Lesser Antilles.

A hurricane watch has been issued for the island of Barbados and a tropical storm watch has been posted for Martinique, Guadeloupe, St. Martin and St. Barthelemy. This system is forecast to move northward, then northeastward, away from the United States. Dry air and fast upper-level winds should cause this storm to dissipate by early next week.

More news: Hurricane Beryl takes aim at eastern Caribbean; will likely miss Puerto Rico

Hurricane Beryl, upgraded to a category one overnight from a tropical storm, remains on a slow course towards the Caribbean. The area denoted in yellow east of the Caribbean Sea shows a concentrated area of t-storms associated with a small low pressure center. Of course, we had subtropical storm Alberto in May, but anything after Hurricane Harvey in terms of a quieter hurricane season is pleasant for Houstonians. This system appears to be less organized, the center said, and the chances for a tropical depression to form are diminishing. Maximum sustained winds are now 30 miles per hour. It was moving west at 16 miles per hour. Over the coming day, the storm could intensify to a tropical storm as it races west.

"It looks like it's going to eventually run into some trouble when it approaches the Windward Islands where some wind shear will weaken the storm", Walsh said.

Beryl is not the only item of note in the tropics as we wrap up the first week of July.
