NHC: Tropical Storm Beryl Could Become Hurricane by Saturday

Tropical Storm Beryl is strengthening over the tropical Atlantic and could become a hurricane by Friday or Saturday, the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said Thursday.

Beryl is about 1,295 miles (2,080 km) east-southeast of the Lesser Antilles in the Caribbean Sea and contains maximum sustained winds of 50 miles per hour (85 km/h), the NHC said in its latest advisory.

“The center of Beryl will remain east of the Lesser Antilles through Sunday,” the Miami-based weather forecaster added.
