Beryl Makes a Comeback as a Sub-Tropical Storm

FLORIDA, United States, Sunday July 15, 2018 – Just as forecasters predicted could happen, the remnants of Hurricane Beryl that had threatened the Eastern Caribbean last week have re-emerged, although the system is not expected to be around for long.

Sub-Tropical Storm Beryl developed yesterday afternoon, about 290 miles north of Bermuda with maximum sustained winds near 40 miles per hour.

By Sunday morning at 5 o’clock, the National Hurricane Centre (NHC) in Miami said Beryl was located 415 miles north of Bermuda and was crawling toward the northeast at just about three miles per hour, with a gradual increase in forward speed expected toward the northeast or north-northeast through tomorrow.

Maximum sustained winds remain near 40 miles per hour, and little change in strength is forecast today.

“Beryl should begin to weaken by this evening when it moves over colder water, and the cyclone is expected to degenerate into a remnant low pressure system late tonight or early Monday,” the NHC said.

There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.
