Tropical Storm Beryl Forms Strengthens Moving Westward

The tropical depression in the Eastern Atlantic 1350 miles east of the Leeward Islands has strengthened to Tropical Storm Beryl earlier this afternoon and in fact has strengthened further based on satellite estimates. Beryl is remarkable for its size. It is very small, almost tiny in nature. There have been instances of storms like this surprising on the upside as they basically operate in their own little world while the surrounding environment seems hostile. Beryl is in that world now but this weekend it will run into hostile conditions and it should weaken to a tropical wave as it approaches the Leeward Islands. The advisory from the National Hurricane Center lies below the satellite loop.
