TROPICAL UPDATE ON HURRICANE BERYL

BERYL LOCATION AT 8AM: 11.7N 50.3W ABOUT 893 MI ESE OF ST. KITTS AND NEVIS.
MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS…75 MPH
PRESENT MOVEMENT…WEST-NORTHWEST OR 295 DEGREES AT 14 MPH
MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE…995

BERYL IS EXPECTED TO MAINTAIN A PATH SOUTH OF THE LEEWARD ISLANDS. HOWEVER, GIVEN THE UNCERTAINTY IN THE FORECAST TRACK, THERE IS STILL A POSSIBILITY THAT BERYL COULD TRACK CLOSER TO THE LEEWARD ISLANDS. IN THAT CASE, WATCHES OR WARNINGS MAY BE REQUIRED WITHIN THE NEXT 18 HOURS FOR PORTIONS OF THE LEEWARD ISLANDS.

RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF UP TO 2 INCHES ARE EXPECTED ACROSS THE LEEWARD ISLANDS.

RESIDENTS OF THE LEEWARDS AND B.V.I. SHOULD THEREFORE, REMAIN STRONGLY VIGILANT AND CLOSELY MONITOR THE PROGRESS OF BERYL FOR ANY SIGNIFICANT CHANGES.
