Will Hurricane Beryl Hit Florida? Projected Track & Forecast

Hurricane Beryl remains small in size but continues to strengthen, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center.

According to N.H.C.'s 5:00 p.m. advisory, the center of Hurricane Beryl was located near latitude 10.6 North, longitude 47.8 West. Beryl is moving toward the west near 15 miles per hour (24 km/h). It was moving west-northwest at 14 miles per hour (22 kph).

Beryl is expected to gain strength today before weakening into a tropical storm and making landfall late Sunday or early Monday on the islands, according to data from the National Hurricane Center.

Still, the remnants of the storm should bring locally heavy rains and gusty winds to portions of the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico on Sunday and Monday, the hurricane centre said. By this time, however, forecasters predict that Beryl will be downgraded to a Tropical Storm. The storm is moving toward the north-northwest near 5 miles per hour (7 km/h). Lojero also warned that the storm is expected to dump up to four inches of rain and could unleash landslides.

"Although the system is forecast to interact with a frontal zone next week, it could linger off the southeast coast and some additional development is possible", Bridges said. In its 7 a.m. Saturday (July 7) advisory, the National Hurricane Center reported that the system showed signs of being less organized, and it could be downgraded to a tropical storm later in the morning.

Government forecasters are advising residents and vacationers in the Carolinas to closely monitor the progress of this storm system, which is expected to drift slowly northwestward this weekend towards the North Carolina coast, where it might stall or meander. The NHC noted that it's possible for the storm to deteriorate to an open wave before hitting the Lesser Antilles on Monday.

Beryl formed on Jul. 5 and became a hurricane a day later.

The average second tropical storm is on August 1 while the average first hurricane doesn't occur until August 10.
