Tropical Storm Beryl disintegrates as it zips to Caribbean

Tropical Storm Beryl disintegrates as it zips to Caribbean

The National Hurricane Center is watching two areas of storminess in the Atlantic Ocean; one has been classified as the second Tropical Storm of the hurricane season.

Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands will experience heavy rainfall and gusty winds associated with Beryl's remnants today, according to the NHC.

Although the storm could briefly become a hurricane, it should fall apart by the time it reaches the Lesser Antilles.

But the National Weather Service maintained a hazardous weather outlook for Puerto Rico, the USA territory still recovering from the devastation wrought previous year by Hurricane Maria, warning of thunderstorms and wind gusts.

Meteorologists estimate there will be four hurricanes, 10 named storms and one major hurricane this season.

A tropical storm warning is up on Guadeloupe and Dominica, while a tropical storm watch has been issued for the French Caribbean territories of Martinique, St. Martin and St. Barts as well as St. Maarten, Barbados, St. Lucia, Saba and St. Eustatius.

Once this updated and reduced Colorado State forecast is added to the list of forecasters we track, the Artemis average forecast has dropped slightly, from 13 named storms, 6 hurricanes and 3 major hurricanes, to a new Artemis average forecast for 12 named storms, 6 hurricanes and 2 major hurricanes.

Cavani returns to practice alone after injury ahead of quarterfinal match
But it's not clear if they will see each other on the field, since Cavani has a calf injury that could rule him out of the match. Cavani, the main striker for Uruguay has scored three goals and is one of the top 5 contenders for the golden boot.

However, the National Hurricagne Center predicts the storm will not make landfall.

Forecasters warned that Puerto Rico could see winds of 15 to 25 miles per hour (25 to 40 kph) as well as 2 to 3 inches (5 to eight 8) of rain that could cause flooding and mudslides.

Earlier, forecasters said was likely to fizzle before becoming a threat to land.

As it still moves over warmer waters, Chris will likely reach Category 1 hurricane strength with maximum winds upwards of 75 miles per hour. Some 60,000 people still have only tarps for roofs. It is located about 605 miles east-southeast of the Lesser Antilles and is moving west at 17 mph.

In explaining the changed forecast, they note that the tropical Atlantic is much colder than normal. The depression is stationary and a very slow southeastward motion is forecast during the next couple of days.

It is now 240 miles east of Barbados and 340 miles east of Martinique.
