Tiny Tropical Storm Beryl pops up in open Atlantic

New predictions for hurricanes, storms in the Caribbean this season

National Hurricane Center monitoring two tropical disturbances

Tropical Storm Beryl has formed in the Atlantic, becoming the second named storm of the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season.

Hurricane Beryl is located about 1140 miles east-southeast of the Lesser Antilles and is moving to the west at 14 mph (22 km/h). As of 11 a.m., the depression is now heading west at 16 miles per hour with maximum sustained winds of 35 miles per hour. The center of the system is 1385 miles east of the Lesser Antilles.

Two powerful storms threaten to turn into tropical cyclons in the Atlantic as hurricane season seems to have started hitting the Caribbean east coast this summer.

Tropical Storm Beryl has formed between west Africa and the Lesser Antilles, but is unlikely to survive as a tropical cyclone by the time it reaches the Lesser Antilles this weekend. Weakening is expected once Beryl reaches the eastern Caribbean Sea on Monday, but the system may not degenerate into an open trough until it reaches the vicinity of Hispaniola and the central Caribbean Sea. "By Tuesday, a faster northeastward motion is expected to begin", forecasters said.

[YELLOW] Shower activity has changed little in organization near a small area of low pressure and tropical wave located several hundred miles west-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands.
