Beryl becomes the first hurricane of the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season

Hurricane Beryl, while tiny in size, will approach the Lesser Antilles late this weekend or early next week, and its chances of striking the Antilles as a hurricane are increasing.

At 8 p.m., Hurricane Beryl, carrying maximum sustained winds near 80 miles per hour, was about 925 miles east southeast of the Lesser Antilles and moving towards the west at 15 miles per hour. The island's meteorological service warned of six to 12 inches of rain and said weather conditions would start deteriorating Saturday night on Dominica, which is rebuilding from Hurricane Maria, which hit as a Category 5 storm previous year. Tropical storm conditions are possible in the watch areas of the Lesser Antilles by late Sunday or Monday.

The National Hurricane Center expects Tropical Storm Beryl to continue to weaken, and possible become an open trough by time it reaches the Caribbean Sea and Hispaniola on Monday night.

Although the storm is close to the US the hurricane center doesn't expect any watches or warnings to be issued. "There is a lot of uncertainty", she said, adding that the storm's track and strength could change in the next 24 hours.

Beryl is now a Category 1 hurricane with maximum sustained winds of 80 miles per hour. But as of early Friday afternoon, the storm system was lingering several hundred miles southeast of the North Carolina coast, posing no threat to the Garden State.

"Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 65 miles per hour (100 km/h) with higher gusts".

We are also monitoring Hurricane Beryl (see Fig. 5).

Beryl is the easternmost hurricane to form from an African wave in July on record, according to University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science hurricane researcher Brian McNoldy. The depression should slow down and meander of well offshore of the coast of North Carolina through Monday.

Beryl is not expected to have any impact on the eastern United States.

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

"The hurricane center said rain and storms were starting to look more organized near the system and tropical depression is "likely" to form over the next few days".

The storm downgraded from a category one hurricane around 11 a.m. Saturday.
