Tropical Storm Beryl takes aim at eastern Caribbean

New predictions for hurricanes, storms in the Caribbean this season National Hurricane Center monitoring two tropical disturbances
Andrew Wong | 09 July, 2018, 08:56

Should it become a tropical depression or a more serious storm, though, it is (at present) far enough out in the Atlantic that it does not seem to present any threat to land.

We'll continue to monitor this feature and provide updates during NBC2 Newscasts throughout the next several days.

Weather forecasters say Tropical Storm Chris is likely to strengthen to a hurricane by Monday but will remain well away from the US coast for the next two or three 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.

A tropical storm warning remained in effect for Dominica and Guadeloupe, while a tropical storm watch was issued for Barbados, St. Lucia, Martinique, St. Martin, and St. Barthelemy, Saba and St. Eustatius and St. Maarten.

Tropical Storm Beryl remains small in size but is getting stronger in the Atlantic Ocean early Friday.

As of Sunday at 8 a.m., Beryl had maximum sustained winds of 45 miles per hour and was moving west-northwest at 20 miles per hour toward the Lesser Antilles. It was predicted to pass south of Puerto Rico on Monday as a tropical depression, but forecasters warned that the storm-wracked USA territory could see up to 30 miles per hour winds and heavy rains that could cause flooding and mudslides. And a new storm formed off the U.S. East Coast.

"Rainfall from Beryl will be the primary concern from the northern Leeward Islands to the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico", said AccuWeather meteorologist Jake Sojda. Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello declared a state of emergency for the island and suspended work for Monday, partly because its electricity grid is particularly vulnerable after Hurricane Maria caused damages to it estimated at $100 billion, the AP reported. The water system will also be shut down at 2 p.m., the government said. There is a 30 percent chance the storm could develop into a tropical system over the next two days as it tracks northwest between Bermuda and the East Coast.

A Tropical Storm Warning means that tropical storm conditions are expected somewhere within the warning area.

Off the U.S. East Coast, Tropical Storm Chris was centered about 150 miles (245 kilometers) south of Cape Hatteras early Sunday, with maximum sustained winds of 40 mph (65 kph).
