Forecasters reverse course, predict below-average 2018 hurricane season

Satellite imagery indicates convection has persisted with enough tenacity and enough evidence of surface low pressure existence that the National Hurricane Center (NHC) indicated the formation of Tropical Storm Beryl Thursday afternoon.

"At 11:00 a.m., the center of Tropical Depression Two was located near latitude 10.2 North, longitude 41.4 West".

The newly formed tropical storm is now over 1,300 miles east-southeast of the Windward Islands, moving west-northwest. The storm could gain tropical storm strength, in which case it would be named Beryl.

"It looks like the disturbance is going to be somewhat stationary over the next few days, with not much organization", Staarmann said Thursday morning.

Model forecast if the tropical depression.

Only 45 named tropical storms have formed in the first half of July from 1851-2017, for an average rate of one every 3.7 years.

European Union warns Trump that raised auto import tariffs would hurt US
The potential new European Union measures would apply "across sectors of the United States economy", the letter stated. This is based on a letter, reported by the Financial Times , from the European Commission to the U.S.

The tropical wave closest to the United States is the weakest of the two; however, it remains less than 1,000 miles away from the Florida coast.

Just hours after strengthening into a depression, Tropical Storm Beryl now has maximum sustained winds of 40 mph with higher gusts and is moving west at 16 mph.

Both systems are expected to strengthen as we enter into the second full month of the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season.

The depression is located between the Cabo Verde Islands and the Lesser Antilles, southeast of the Caribbean Sea.

But it added that the system is forecast to interact with a frontal system on Sunday, which would limit any additional development.
