Atlantic system strengthens into Tropical Storm Beryl, could dissipate before impacting Florida

Atlantic system strengthens into Tropical Storm Beryl, could dissipate before impacting Florida

At 2:30 p.m. Thursday, the National Hurricane Center upgraded the system in the central Atlantic to Tropical Storm Beryl.

According to data, the storm is located at 10.2 N, 41.4 W with winds at approximately 35 miles per hour. Now, that complex of storms is being recognized as Tropical Depression TWO.

"Beryl is a tiny tropical storm".

Moving about 15 to 20mph to the west, the storm system will interact with upper level winds and Sarahan Dust this weekend, prohibiting any further strengthening.

Another system, dubbed Invest 96L, now centered southwest of Bermuda has a medium chance of developing into a tropical depression by the end of this week, according to the NHC.




The Atlantic hurricane season typically begins to peak in August and September and will end on November 30. Areas of strong wind shear, the difference in wind speed and direction with height, are shown in purple. Maximum winds are 35 miles per hour as it spins over the central Atlantic.

If that happens, the system would become the second named storm of the hurricane season, taking the name Beryl.

WLTX will continue to monitor the storm as it progresses.

"It looks like the disturbance is going to be somewhat stationary over the next few days, with not much organization", Staarmann said Thursday morning.

Beryl was located between the Cabo Verde Islands and the Lesser Antilles. Satellite data helped convince forecasters that the storm had met tropical cyclone criteria.
