New predictions for hurricanes, storms in the Caribbean this season

People along the Carolina coast should monitor the progress of this tropical system, as conditions are favorable for its development, with a 70-percent chance of formation over the next 48 hours and an 80-percent chance over the next five days.

Earlier this week, Colorado State University updated its forecast for the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season, lowering the number of named storms expected to 11, 4 hurricanes and 1 major hurricane.

Dominican Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit told people to store water because the government would be shutting down the water system as a protective measure, and he warned them to stay alert despite's the storm weakening.

The eye of Hurricane Beryl was located near latitude 10.7 North, longitude 46.5 West on Friday morning.

Beryl is moving toward the west-northwest near 20 miles per hour (31 km/h), and this motion with an increase in forward speed is expected during the next couple of days.

"Tropical storm warnings and watches are in effect for portions of the Lesser Antilles, where Beryl is forecast to bring impacts from wind and rainfall to some of the islands beginning late today or tonight", forecasters said Sunday. Tropical-force winds extend up to 35 miles from the center.

Former Navy SEAL: Thailand Cave Rescue Is Like 'Climbing Mount Everest'
According to our correspondent, Thai officials have warned the rescue could take three or four days in the worst case scenario. The acting Chiang Rai governor had said rescuers couldn't wait for flawless weather conditions because of several factors.


However, the storm is forecast to weaken gradually, eventually becoming a trough of low pressure Monday as it moves across the Caribbean Sea.

Beryl is a compact hurricane.

"The estimated minimum central pressure is 1004 mb (29.65 inches)".

A hurricane watch has been issued for the island of Barbados and a tropical storm watch has been posted for Martinique, Guadeloupe, St. Martin and St. Barthelemy. Dry air and fast upper-level winds should cause this storm to dissipate by early next week.

Beyond that time frame, the ultimate path and intensity of Beryl or its leftovers is unknown. "In fact, this system will probably lose its designation in about three days - before it even reaches the Lesser Antilles", the publication reported on Thursday, July 5. Meanwhile, a tropical depression formed in the afternoon off the U.S. East Coast.

There is no indication the depression will form into a hurricane, much less strike Florida or Indian River County, according to forecasters.

As it still moves over warmer waters, Chris will likely reach Category 1 hurricane strength with maximum winds upwards of 75 miles per hour. "It has a brief chance to develop, but once it reaches those upper-level winds, it will have a very hard time generating into anything more".
