Beryl 2.0? Chances Increase of Re-Development

9 Jul 2018, 3:25 pm

Beryl degenerated into a remnant low on Sunday, but that may not be all for the Atlantic basin’s first hurricane of the 2018 season. The National Hurricane Center (NHC) has upped the probabilities of Beryl re-developing to 50 percent, as of Monday afternoon.

For now, Beryl is delivering heavy rain to Puerto Rico and the island of Hispaniola in the Caribbean. But, as the remnant low moves north, it will move into an area that’s expected to be more conducive for possible development. Regardless of formal re-development or not, heavy rain is expected to be the main impact for the Caribbean. 

Now while formal re-development appears to be increasingly possible, impacts to land are expected to be relatively minimal. The storm will likely stay north of the Bahamas, but interests along the eastern U.S. coastline, Bermuda and the Bahamas should, in particular, keep a close eye to the happenings of the storm.
