  • New predictions for hurricanes, storms in the Caribbean this season

The newly formed tropical storm is now over 1,300 miles east-southeast of the Windward Islands, moving west-northwest. Four of those storms are projected to be hurricanes with wind speeds of 74 miles per hour (119 kilometers per hour).

Beryl became the first hurricane in the Atlantic this season Friday and is not expected to threaten the United States. mainland.

However, upper-level winds are expected to become less conducive for development by the weekend, when the system approaches the Lesser Antilles. Tropical storm watches were in place in Barbados, St. Lucia, Martinique, Guadeloupe, St. Martin, St. Barthelemy, Saba and St. Eustatius, according to the hurricane center.

Beryl could get even stronger over the next day or so, then weaken to a tropical storm or even a trough by the time it reaches Hispaniola, where impact with land and unfavorable conditions should destroy it.

The Weather Channel warned the Lesser Antilles in the Caribbean should "watch out" as Tropical Invest 95L could cause a lot of damage this weekend.

Forecast for Tropical Depression Two.

The storm is moving west at 16 miles per hour and will continue to track west or west-northwest at 15 to 20 miles per hour over the tropical waters of the Atlantic. The first storm of the season was Subtropical Storm Alberto in May.

This after cooler waters in the Atlantic and a possible El Nino developing which typically means fewer overall hurricanes will form.

Last year, there were 17 named storms, 10 hurricanes and six major hurricanes, including Hurricanes Irma and Maria which devastated some parts of the Caribbean. Additional strengthening is forecast, and Beryl could become a hurricane by Friday or Saturday. Storm force winds extend just 35 miles from Beryl's center.
