Depression meanders off Carolina coastline; Beryl continues to weaken

Essentially, this area of low pressure has between now and Sunday to get classified a tropical system before moving back into unfavorable conditions.

As it still moves over warmer waters, Chris will likely reach Category 1 hurricane strength with maximum winds upwards of 75 miles per hour.

However, forecasters with the National Hurricane Center said another low-pressure system a few hundred miles southeast of North Carolina may develop into a tropical depression and move slowly or stall over the weekend. Should it become a tropical depression or a more serious storm, though, it is (at present) far enough out in the Atlantic that it does not seem to present any threat to land.

The storm showed good outflow banding, and continued convective buildup near the center of circulation based on rapid-scan imagery from GOES 16 Thursday morning. Activity is expected to be most widespread during the mid-afternoon into the early evening hours. Subtropical Storm Alberto became the first named storm of the season when it formed in May, dumping heavy rain on the southern United States. Four of those storms are projected to be hurricanes with wind speeds of 74 miles per hour (119 kilometers per hour).

On the forecast track, the center of Beryl will approach the Lesser Antilles through Sunday, cross the island chain Sunday night, and move south of the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico on Monday. The hurricane center said the storm was expected to generate swells that would increase in intensity along the North Carolina and mid-Atlantic coasts. Tropical storm strength winds can be expected in the watch and warning areas late Sunday through Monday morning and total rain accumulations of 1 to 3 inches through Monday.

Tropical Storm Beryl has formed between west Africa and the Lesser Antilles, but is unlikely to survive as a tropical cyclone by the time it reaches the Lesser Antilles this weekend.
