Formed in the Atlantic tropical storm "beryl"

A system in the Atlantic has quickly developed into the second tropical storm of the 2018 hurricane season.

Tropical Depression Two was located over 1300 miles to the east-southeast of the Lesser Antilles, according to the 11 am EDT advisory from the National Hurricane Center.

The newly formed tropical storm is now over 1 200 miles east-southeast of the Windward Islands, moving west-northwest.

The hurricane center anticipates it will strengthen and become Tropical Storm Beryl later today or on Friday. It's expected to degenerate into a low pressure system before it reaches the Lesser Antilles.

The science is "very important", but it has to be paired with "working with local communities and politicians". The resulting egg was fertilized by sperm, taken earlier from Sudan and stored frozen.


It's been a long time since we had a tropical storm. "Again, it's a little uncertain at this time, so we'll just have to keep an eye on it", Loewenthal explained.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1009 mb (29.80 inches).

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. A gradual west-northwest movement is expected over the next several days.

The NHC said that the system is expected to dissipate however it will still bring gusty winds and showers to the Lesser Antilles. TD#3 is sitting over warm water in an area with weak shear, so it is likely that the storm will attain tropical storm status in the next 12 hours, becoming Tropical Storm Chris. Beryl is the first mid-Atlantic storm to develop in July since 2014, while Alberto marked the fourth season in a row with a tropical system developing before the "official" start of the season on June 1.

One model has the system developing and moving west to northwest at 15-20 miles per hour, placing it over Venezuela by early Sunday morning.

Waters across much of the northern Atlantic are cooler than they have been in almost 30 years and an El Niño watch issued last month by the National Hurricane Center appears to be becoming more certain as wind shear, particularly in the Caribbean, has increased.

The barrelling tropical storm caused more than £37million ($50million) in damage and claimed 12 lives as it moved up the United States coast in May.
