Tropical Depression forms to the west

Tropical Storm Beryl could become hurricane on Friday Beryl becomes first hurricane of the 2018 Atlantic season

Hurricane Beryl, with sustained winds of 70kts, is moving westward at 13kts, now less than 1000 miles east of the Lesser Antilles.

As of Friday morning, Beryl has winds of up to 75 miles per hour and is continuing to move west.

Forecasters said the storm is expected to dump heavy rain across islands including Dominica and Puerto Rico, which could also be hit with winds of more than to 40 miles per hour and flooding. By this time, however, forecasters predict that Beryl will be downgraded to a Tropical Storm.

"It is possible that we could have hurricane watches up for some of those islands by tonight", said Robbie Berg, a hurricane specialist at the National Hurricane Center.

The Atlantic hurricane season, which runs from June 1 to November 30, spared Bermuda a year ago, but battered the Caribbean as well as the United States.

As of 5 pm ET on Thursday, Beryl had winds of 50 miles per hour and was moving to the west at 16 miles per hour.

Given Beryl's tiny size, it's too soon to determine which islands may see impacts and how strong the impacts will be, but periods of heavy rain, gusty winds and at least some locally choppy seas can be expected, regardless.

Eating nuts boosts male fertility: Scientists
If a man regularly eats nuts , he has improved the quality of sperm, reports the Chronicle.Info with reference to the Telegraph. This research comes after an alarming study found that men's sperm counts in the western world have been dropping since 1973 .

In its 11 p.m. Friday update, the NHS said Beryl had shown little change since it reached hurricane status Friday morning.

The hurricane might not weaken substantially until it gets near Hispaniola and the central Caribbean Sea, the hurricane center said in its latest storm advisory.

Environmental conditions appear conductive for some gradual development during the next couple of days while the system moves slowly northwest then north off the coast of North Carolina.

Interests elsewhere in the Lesser Antilles should continue to monitor the progress of Beryl, as additional watches could be required for other islands later today. "By Tuesday, a faster northeastward motion is expected to begin", forecasters said. "Gradual strengthening is forecast during the next few days, and the depression is expected to become a tropical storm by Sunday".

Beryl has formed into a hurricane in the Atlantic Ocean.

The storm was declared the first hurricane of the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season, and is expected to hit the eastern Caribbean as a hurricane instead of dissipating.
