Tropical Depression Two forms in Atlantic, could dissipate before impacting Florida

New predictions for hurricanes, storms in the Caribbean this season

A tropical depression strengthened into Tropical Storm Beryl on Thursday afternoon, the National Hurricane Center said.

The depression is located about 1,385 miles (2,230 km) east-southeast of the Lesser Antilles and is packing maximum sustained winds of 35 mph (55 km/h), the Miami-based weather agency said.

The depression could become a tropical storm later today or Friday. It's expected to degenerate into a low pressure system before it reaches the Lesser Antilles. The government of France has issued a Tropical Storm Watch for Barbados, St. Lucia, Martinique, Guadeloupe, St. Martin, and St. Barthelemy. A second system a few hundred miles southwest of Bermuda remained disorganized Thursday morning, but forecasters said it could strengthen as it moves east, away from the USA coast. Beryl is the first mid-Atlantic storm to develop in July since 2014, while Alberto marked the fourth season in a row with a tropical system developing before the "official" start of the season on June 1. Beryl is now forecast to track south of Puerto Rico and Hispaniola as a tropical storm early next week.

Still, the storm is expected to impact some islands in the Caribbean even if it doesn't directly pass over them.

This morning, it was moving to the west at 10 to 15 miles per hour and the NHC said it had a 30 per cent chance of developing more over the next two to five days.


Tropical Storm Beryl has formed between west Africa and the Lesser Antilles, but is unlikely to survive as a tropical cyclone by the time it reaches the Lesser Antilles this weekend.

Peak wind speeds were estimated at 50 miles per hour, with some higher gusts.

A tropical system developed into Hurricane Beryl on Friday. It forms when sea temperatures in the tropical Pacific are warmer than average, and cause higher speed, high-level winds across the southern United States, reducing tropical storm formation.

On May 31, Klotzbach was predicting a total of 14 named storms, six hurricanes and two major hurricanes - category 3 or stronger.
