KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Tropical Storm Beryl developed in the central Tropical Atlantic and has maximum sustained winds of 40 miles per hour with higher gusts.

The more significant of the two disturbances was upgraded to a tropical depression at 11 a.m. and now forecast to become a Tropical Storm Beryl with maximum sustained winds of around 40 mph in the next 24 hours.

This storm doesn't look too scary right now, but of course, we'll keep a close eye on it! A tropical depression could form as the system moves west-northwestward and then northward, between Bermuda and the east coast of the United States.

It formed in May, just before June 1, the official start of hurricane season. In fact, this system will likely lose its designation in about three days - before it even reaches the Lesser Antilles islands.

Wind shear is forecast to clip Beryls wings as it heads west — but the system has the potential to bring rain to the Caribbean.

If that happens, the system would become the second named storm of the hurricane season, taking the name Beryl.

Earlier this week, forecasters said an El Niño has a 50 percent chance of forming during the fall with conditions expect to remain neutral through September. The probability of direct hit on the USA coast from a major hurricane - classified as a Category 3, 4, or 5 on the Saffir-Simpson scale - is down to 39 percent from 63 percent. But one of them was catastrophic Hurricane Andrew, which devastated portions of South Florida and killed dozens of people.
