Good news: Tropical Storm Beryl weakened to a remnant low as it was approaching the Lesser Antilles on Sunday, according to the National Hurricane Center (NHC). Its maximum sustained winds were down to 45 miles-per-hour (MPH) as of Sunday afternoon. The storm was losing strength on Sunday due to strong wind shear, which is the change of wind speed and direction with height that essentially tears apart a storm. That said, there's a chance that Beryl may re-develop in a few days time when it moves into a more favorable wind shear environment. The timing would likely be mid-week as it moves into the Bahamas and the western Atlantic. Be sure to stay with WeatherNation for the latest on this storm. In the meantime, the impacts to the Lesser Antilles and the Caribbean islands will be heavy rain and gusty winds. Localized flooding and landslides are possible with Beryl, which, fortunately, is an unusually small storm in terms of diameter. Despite Beryl losing its tropical storm status, it still remains a wind and rain threat for the eastern Caribbean. Residents in the Lesser Antilles, Hispaniola, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands should be prepared to deal with gusty winds and heavy rainfall. Stay with WeatherNation for the latest on Beryl and the tropics. For WeatherNation: Meteorologist Chris Bianchi
