By Karen Graham     Jul 7, 2018 in Environment
After just barely reaching hurricane status on Friday, the National Hurricane Center has downgraded Beryl to a Tropical Storm, forecasting it will weaken as it approaches the eastern Caribbean Sea islands early next week.
Tropical Storm Beryl is 720 miles (160 kilometers) east-southeast of the Lesser Antilles, moving west-northwest at 14 mph (14 kph). Beryl has a minimum central pressure of 999 MB...29.50 inches as of the NHC 11:00 a.m. update.
Tropical Storm Beryl is still packing winds of 65 mph (100 kph) and is expected to approach the Lesser Antilles over the weekend and cross the island chain late Sunday or Monday, and move south of the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico on Monday and Monday night.
The government of Barbados has issued a Tropical Storm Warning and discontinued the Hurricane Watch for Dominica, while the government of the Netherlands has issued a Tropical Storm Watch for Saba and St. Eustatius. Tropical Storm Watches are also in place for Barbados, St. Lucia, Martinique, Guadeloupe, St. Martin, and St. Barthelemy.
Beryl is a small tropical storm. The storm is expected to produce total rain accumulations of 2 to 4 inches through Monday across the southern Leeward and the northern Windward Islands. Across the remainder of the Leeward and Windward Islands, the Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico, rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches with locally higher amounts are expected.
Update on Tropical Depression Three
Tropical Depression Three is 150 miles. (240 kilometers) south-southeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina as of 11:00 a.m. EDT, with present movement to the north at 2.0 mph (4.0 kph) an maximum sustained winds of 30 mph (45 kph). The storm's minimum central pressure is currently 1015 MB...29.98 inches.
There is minimal movement expected over the next two days, with the storm forecast to begin moving toward the northeast by Tuesday. Some strengthening is forecast during the next several days, and the depression could become a tropical storm later tonight or on Sunday. A reconnaissance plane is currently approaching the depression.
