  • Hurricane Beryl could hit parts of the Caribbean

Hurricane Beryl has strengthened quickly to become the first hurricane of the 2018 Atlantic season, though it's due to weaken before making landfall overnight Sunday in the Caribbean.

A tropical storm warning is in effect for Dominica and Guadeloupe, while a tropical storm watch is in effect for Martinique, St. Martin, St. Barthelemy, Saba, St. Eustatius and St. Maarten. Dominica was under a hurricane watch and several surrounding islands issued tropical storm watches, with the strong winds possible by Sunday evening.

Beryl's hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 10 miles from the centre, and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 35 miles. A weak and disorganized Tropical Storm Beryl continued to track westward toward the Lesser Antilles on Sunday with 45 miles per hour winds.

The hurricane center said an Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft was unable to find a closed low-level center in Beryl early on Sunday morning. The storm's trajectory remains uncertain and no coastal warnings are now in effect, but forecasters urge those along the coast of North Carolina to stay alert.

As with any tropical system, we will continue to monitor the National Hurricane Center's forecast as it develops and bring you the latest on our various media platforms when available. The storm's sustained winds were at 74 miles per hour.

Beryl is officially the first hurricane of the 2018 Atlantic season, the National Hurricane Centerannounced Friday. Puerto Rico, which was devastated by Hurricane Maria in September, remained under a state of emergency.

The hurricane center noted early Sunday that many forecast models have shifted the path for Chris south and westward.

The center says Beryl may not weaken until it reaches the area near Hispaniola and the central Caribbean Sea.

"The hurricane center said rain and storms were starting to look more organized near the system and tropical depression is "likely" to form over the next few days".
