Hurricane Beryl Is A Major Hurricane And Continues To Strengthen

Hurricane Beryl is a major hurricane and it continues to strengthen as it approaches the Windward islands tomorrow
morning, Monday July 1st, 2024.

A Tropical Storm Watch is now in effect for Trinidad.

This means that tropical storm conditions, including sustained winds of 63-118 km/h, are possible somewhere within the watch area, in this case within 24 hours.

A Hurricane Warning remains in effect for Tobago.

This means there is a higher potential for hurricane conditions, including sustained winds in excess of 118 km/h, within the warning area, in this case within 24 hours.

Preparations to protect life and property should be rushed to completion.

At 11 am today, Sunday 30th June, 2024, Beryl was located near 10.7°N 55.9°W, approximately 640km E of Tobago,
moving westward near 34 km/h.

Beryl is a category 3 hurricane on the Saf4r-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale.

Some additional strengthening is forecast through tonight, and Beryl is expected to become an extremely dangerous category 4 hurricane before it reaches the Windward Islands.

As Beryl approaches the southern Windwards on Monday July 1st, 2024 there is a high chance (60-80%) of hurricane
force winds impacting Tobago from early morning on Monday.

Though the stronger hurricane and tropical storm force winds are expected to be closely packed around the centre of Beryl, there is a low to marginally medium chance (10-30%) of tropical storm force winds affecting Trinidad.

Heavy showers and thunderstorms are likely from Monday, and sea conditions can become choppy and rough.
