Beryl becomes first hurricane of the 2018 season

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

Beryl became the first hurricane of the Atlantic season Friday as the storm made its way to the Lesser Antilles, the National Hurricane Center said. Beryl is a very compact storm with sustained winds of 80 miles per hour gusting to 100 miles per hour at times.

The storm strengthened to a Category 1 hurricane from a tropical storm early Friday morning. Forecasters say it is unlikely to have much impact on the island, which is still recovering from the devastation of Hurricane Maria past year.

Tropical Storm Beryl formed as a tropical depression on Thursday, July 5.

Maximum sustained winds are now 30 miles per hour.

At 11a.m., Hurricane Beryl was located near latitude 10.7 degrees north and longitude 46.5 degrees west or about 913 miles east south-east of Dominica. "It would be best if they are completed by June 1st at the start of hurricane season".

As of 5 pm ET on Thursday, Beryl had winds of 50 miles per hour and was moving to the west at 16 miles per hour. The storm continued moving through the state, bringing heavy wind and rain to Tampa, while causing tornado warnings in the Orlando area.

Hurricane Beryl is expected to produce 2 to 4 inches of rain through Sunday across the southern Leeward Islands and northern Windward Islands.

The storm should begin to weaken once it reaches the eastern Caribbean on Monday. The system is forecast to be close to hurricane strength when moving through the region.

Thai schoolboys not ready for underwater escape
On the surface, a huge military and civilian rescue operation is racing against the clock to bring the boys to safety. But as the group ventured deeper into the cave that Saturday afternoon, the sky opened up and it began to rain.

Beryl is a very compact hurricane. The hurricane centre said it would likely become a tropical storm Saturday and continue strengthening over the next few days while remaining far offshore.

Another storm system now off the coast of North Carolina has a high likelihood of cyclone formation, according to NWS.

Interests elsewhere in the Lesser Antilles should monitor the progress of Beryl, as additional watches could be required for other islands tonight or early Saturday.

The storm should then dissipate to just an area of low pressure by the middle of next week while it is near Cuba.

On the way back up, hands aloft as if he were trying to end the play, Allen appeared to give Young a slight shoulder check. Allen was chasing down a loose ball when his leg got in the way of a player on the Atlanta Hawks.

However, the emergence of Beryl serves as a timely reminder that, despite the long-term forecast of much less activity this season than first believed, storms are always unpredictable.
