New predictions for hurricanes, storms in the Caribbean this season

"By Tuesday, a faster northeastward motion is expected to begin", forecasters said. When it becomes a tropical storm, it will be named Chris.

"The estimated minimum central pressure is 1009 mb [29.80 inches]". It will stay mainly stationary off the coast of North Carolina the next 2 days, then quickly jog towards the northeast. However, this still does raise rip current and rough surf risks through the end of next week for the mid-Atlantic coastline.

A tropical storm warning was in place in Dominica, replacing an earlier hurricane watch, and Guadeloupe.

A tropical wave heading for the Caribbean is now a tropical depression and is headed for the Lesser Antilles.

The depression was located about 1,385 miles east-southeast of the Lesser Antilles and was moving west at 16 mph.

"Beryl is forecast to be near hurricane strength when it approaches the Lesser Antilles Sunday night or Monday, and the chance of some islands receiving direct impacts from wind and rainfall continue to increase", NHC forecasters said.

"Maximum sustained winds are near 35 miles per hour [55 km/h] with higher gusts".

Discussing his global future in January, Pique said: "Yes, I will leave the national team after the World Cup ". However he defended the team after they controlled the match before losing on penalties.

However, the storm is forecast to weaken gradually, eventually becoming a trough of low pressure Monday as it moves across the Caribbean Sea. "Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 35 miles [55 km] from the center".

Skerrit also visited some of the most vulnerable areas on the island, pledging to issue whatever help possible in the event of any damages.

The National Hurricane Center gives this area a 30-percent-chance of tropical development within the next 48-hours and a 40-percent-chance of tropical development within the next five days.

The year's first Atlantic hurricane weakened Saturday morning into a tropical storm, but Caribbean islands struck by last year's devastating hurricanes are still on alert.

On May 31, Klotzbach was predicting a total of 14 named storms, six hurricanes and two major hurricanes - category 3 or stronger.

"The tropics have become increasingly active as we've flipped the calendar over to July", Meteorologist Joey Sovine said.
