System in Caribbean has 70 percent chance of tropical development

System in Caribbean has 70 percent chance of tropical development

A tropical storm warning remains for Barbados and a hurricane watch was discontinued for Dominica, which endured Hurricane Maria's Category 5 winds in September.

A separate storm, Tropical Depression Three, formed off the Carolina coast Friday afternoon.

The only storm in the Atlantic basin so far this year was Subtropical Storm Alberto, which formed on May 25 and dissipated on May 31 after making landfall in the Florida panhandle. Additional weakening is forecast during the next 48 hours, and Beryl is likely to weaken to a tropical depression after moving across the Lesser Antilles.

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Chris formed off the Carolinas, and the US hurricane centre said it was likely to grow into a hurricane while heading to the northeast, roughly parallel to the coast.

The system is expected to deteriorate before moving closer to Peurto Rico in the coming days.

Israel and Jordan - which already hosts over 666,000 United Nations registered refugees - say they will not let refugees in. Israel has sent humanitarian aid across the border for several years.

An Air Force hurricane hunter aircraft dispatched into the center of the storm found that sustained winds are near 40 mph, and extend up to 60 miles from the center of the storm.

In less than a day, Tropical Storm Beryl was upgraded to the first hurricane of the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season and another system brewing near the Carolinas has a high chance of tropical development.

The storm is forecast to strengthen in coming days and could become a tropical storm Saturday night or Sunday, the hurricane center said Saturday morning.

However, upper-level winds are expected to become less conducive for development by the weekend, when the system approaches the Lesser Antilles. It appears that Fabio has reached its peak intensity with wind speeds of 110 miles per hour and its minimum pressure at 964 mb. It was located about 965 miles east-southeast of the Lesser Antilles. Beryl is then forecast to possibly fall apart in the eastern Caribbean Sea as it encounters unfavorable conditions early next week. Tropical storm strength winds can be expected in the watch and warning areas late Sunday through Monday morning and total rain accumulations of 1 to 3 inches through Monday.
