    Tropical Storm Beryl

    I've been watching a system cross the Atlantic. I'm not saying it will reach the continental U.S. but I've noticed the chances of this system forming into a tropical system grow exponentially the past couple of days so I thought I would post this. We are a couple of weeks away so no danger to any appreciable landmass yet.

    From the National Hurricane Center:

    Satellite images indicate that the shower activity associated with a
    small area of low pressure and a tropical wave located between
    the Cabo Verde Islands and the Lesser Antilles remains well
    organized, and a tropical depression could form at any time soon.
    This disturbance is forecast to move westward or west-northwestward
    at 15 to 20 mph over the tropical Atlantic Ocean. However, in a few
    days, the upper-level winds are forecast to become unfavorable, and
    the system is expected to degenerate into a trough of low pressure
    before it approaches the Lesser Antilles.
    * Formation chance through 48 hours...high...70 percent.
    * Formation chance through 5 days...high...70 percent.

    I'll be keeping very close attention to this as well. I'll be in Hilton Head, SC July 14th to the 21st.

    It's way too early to tell the exact track. The following map shows the typical July tracks.

    Also, we are about a week or so away. It is now Tropical Storm Beryl. I'll update later this evening.

    You might want to keep a close eye on this storm system.

    Really hope this becomes nothing more than a rain storm. I know someone in school down in Anguilla currently and the island got destroyed last summer.

    * If the storm is forecast to dissipate within 3 days, the "Full Forecast" and "3 day" graphic will be identical.

    Right now they are identical. So what's the ups, weather wrassler? Is this a thing or not a thing?

    A friend's son is moving down here from Whitley County tomorrow, staying with Mrs. S and me until he can find a place of his own. We gonna get his feet wet right off the bat?

    I just got back home from Lexington and took a quick look at the latest forecast for Beryl. It is forecast to become a hurricane by Friday or Saturday. Then maybe degenerate after passing the Lesser Antilles. So we'll have to wait and see if it does indeed degenerate from hurricane strength. It actually caught the National Hurricane Center by surprise because it gained strength so quickly. So everything is up in the air for now. I'll be watching it.

    Tiny Beryl has become a hurricane. Maximum sustained winds are 75 mph with movement west at 14 mph. Some additional strengthening is forecast for later today. Beryl is forecasted to quickly weaken by late Saturday and become a tropical storm.

    Beryl is no longer a tropical system but it is forecast to regenerate later in the week. For now, there appears Beryl poses no danger to the U.S. mainland. Those who may be planning a vacation in the Bahamas or have interest in that area should keep an eye on this system.

    Ugh, that's the track of the storm that i didn't want to see. South Carolina seems too close.
