Tropical wave in Atlantic strengthens to depression

This Atlantic hurricane season will not be nearly as active as last year’s according to forecasters

Satellite imagery indicates convection has persisted with enough tenacity and enough evidence of surface low pressure existence that the National Hurricane Center (NHC) indicated the formation of Tropical Storm Beryl Thursday afternoon.

But Beryl, described by the Hurricane Center as "a tiny tropical storm", is forecast to degenerate just east of the Lesser Antilles sometime over the weekend, the Hurricane Center said.

Moving about 15 to 20mph to the west, the storm system will interact with upper level winds and Sarahan Dust this weekend, prohibiting any further strengthening. The National Hurricane Center will be watching this to possibly name it Beryl ahead of its dissipation.

Tropical waves are areas of low air pressure which move from east to west across the tropics, causing areas of cloudiness and thunderstorms. Subtropical Storm Alberto became the first named storm of the season when it formed in May, dumping heavy rain on the southern United States.

The NHC said, "Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 50 miles per hour [85 km/h] with higher gusts".

Tropical Depression Two had winds of 35 miles per hour.

We'll continue to monitor the progress of Tropical Depression Two. So, at this point there are no concerns for impacts for the U.S.

The hurricane center put the chances of it becoming a tropical depression at 40 percent over the next five days, which is down from 60 percent on Wednesday.
