Tropical Depression Three forms off North Carolina coast

Beryl becomes the first hurricane of the 2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season

Hurricane Beryl has formed east of the Lesser Antilles and is a Category 1 hurricane, according to the National Weather Service (NWS).

Due to the small size of the hurricane, short-term changes in intensity, up or down, could occur over the next day or two, but Beryl is forecast to be near hurricane strength as it nears the Lesser Antilles. The storm was moving west-northwest at 14 miles per hour. The storm, which is now a Category 1, is expected to arrive in the Lesser Antilles by late Sunday or early Monday.

Beryl is the second named storm of the 2018 hurricane season.

Maximum sustained winds are reaching 80 miles per hour with larger gusts. Its hurricane-force winds extended only about 10 miles from the storm's center, and tropical storm-force winds extended up to about 35 miles from the center.

Earlier, the National Hurricane Center had warned that Beryl will remain very hard to predict. Small storms can morph quickly - Beryl flared up from a depression Thursday morning to a hurricane in less than 24 hours. But forecasters say Beryl could regain hurricane status as it moves into the Caribbean Sea.

While the USA doesn't need to be overly concerned with Hurricane Beryl at this time, there is another story that is sitting off the coast of the Carolinas. Some additional strengthening is forecast today. By late Sunday, it should begin a transition back to a tropical storm, continuing a path toward the north-central Caribbean. An alternative scenario, supported by the NHC's large-scale models, is that Beryl weakens to a tropical wave near the 72-hour point.

The storm should then dissipate to just an area of low pressure by the middle of next week while it is near Cuba.

According to the NOAA, Beryl is now 1,140 miles off the coast of the Lesser Antilles.
