First Hurricane Of The Season Forms In Atlantic Ocean

  • At 11pm on July 5 Tropical Storm Beryl was located near latitude 10.4 North longitude 44.0 West

The National Hurricane Center has just upgraded the status of Beryl to a Category 1 hurricane in the Atlantic.

Beryl had sustained winds Friday of 80 miles per hour, which were expected to strengthen over the next few days.

The Dominica Meteorological Service issued an update at midday Friday, advising that a Hurricane Watch would be issued at 5:00 pm Dominica time. Beryl is forecast to quickly weaken by late Saturday and become a tropical storm or degenerate into a strong open trough near the Lesser Antilles late Sunday or Monday.

Beryl is now expected to pass near Dominica and the French Caribbean islands of Guadeloupe and Martinique early Monday as a tropical wave and then continue south of Puerto Rico.

For roughly the next day Beryl is expected to continue developing within very low vertical wind shear conditions and over water with surface temperatures of 78 to 80 degrees. This is the first hurricane of the 2018 Atlantic season and it is moving off to the West at 14mph.

Washington is stepping up pressure on all countries, including India and China , to completely stop buying oil from Iran by November 4.

"It is possible that we could have hurricane watches up for some of those islands by tonight", said Robbie Berg, a hurricane specialist at the National Hurricane Center.

"Upper-level winds will become hostile before Beryl approaches the Lesser Antilles this weekend". A faster west-northwestward motion is expected through the weekend.

Maximum sustained winds are near 80 miles per hour or 130 km/h with higher gusts.

A tropical storm (TS) watch is in effect for Martinique, Guadeloupe, St. Martin and St. Barthelemy. 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.
