- Forecasters think Beryl will move through the northern Windward Islands as a tropical storm.
6th July 2018, 11:00am – Beryl has intensified further. Winds are now estimated at 80 mph. Some additional intensification is possible today. Wind shear is likely to increase tomorrow, which should lead to a gradual weakening trend. Most of the guidance now brings Beryl through the islands as a tropical storm instead of a tropical wave. Winds are forecast to be 50 mph when Beryl moves through the northern Windward Islands. Beryl is also a very small storm. When it moves into the Caribbean, winds of tropical storm force winds will only extend about 35 miles north of the center.
Beryl is expected to move on a track slightly north of due west for the next few days. The forecast takes Beryl through the northern Windward Islands late Sunday.
The next advisory will be issued by 5 PM
