National Hurricane Center monitoring two tropical disturbances

It will interact with a frontal system on Sunday, limiting additional development.

Then at the end of May, although the predicted number of storms remained the same, it was forecast that six would become hurricanes, two of them major.

Though the storm is far from the strength of major Hurricanes Maria and Irma a year ago, Beryl still poses a threat of wind and rain to areas that have not fully recovered from those destructive storms. "Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 35 miles [55 km] from the center".

The weather system that's now about 1,300 miles east and southeast of the Lesser Antilles had been deemed a tropical depression Thursday morning and strengthened within a few hours to a tropical storm.

The storm showed good outflow banding, and continued convective buildup near the center of circulation based on rapid-scan imagery from GOES 16 Thursday morning.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center said Beryl had maximum sustained winds of 45 miles per hour (75 kph) early Sunday. Beryl is expected to weaken starting on Sunday or Monday.

The NHC's forecast discussion advises, however, that Beryl's small size means "there is greater uncertainty than usual regarding Beryl's intensity forecast".

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico - Gusty winds began to hit the eastern Caribbean on Sunday as Tropical Storm Beryl advanced rapidly toward a region struggling to recover from last year's deadly hurricanes.

The Met Office assured the public however that the country is not under any tropical storm watch or warning. Beryl was downgraded to a tropical storm later Saturday.

Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 80 miles per hour with higher gusts.

There's a new tropical depression in the central Atlantic, and it could strengthen and become Tropical Storm Beryl as soon as today.

Beryl is expected to still be a hurricane when it reaches the Lesser Antilles late Sunday or Monday, the National Hurricane Center said. These shearing winds should weaken this system as it is reaching the Lesser Antilles.
