TT Met Service Reveals Beryl Is A Dangerous Category 3 Hurricane

At 8 am Sunday Hurricane Beryl was located near 10.6oN latitude 53.9oW longitude, approximately
740km E of Tobago.

The Trinidad and Tobago Met Service says Beryl is moving towards the west near 33km/h.

A quick westward to west-northwestward motion is expected during the next few days.

On the forecast track, the system is expected to move across the Windward Islands early on Monday.

Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 155 km/h with higher gusts.

Rapid strengthening is forecast over the next day or so and Beryl is expected to become a dangerous hurricane before it reaches the Windward Islands.

Hurricane- force winds extend outward up to 30 km from the centre and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 130 km.

Tobago has been upgraded to a Hurricane Warning.

This means there is a higher potential for hurricane conditions, including sustained winds in excess of 100 km/h, within the warning area, within the next 30 hours.

A Hurricane Warning is also in effect for Grenada and its dependencies.

At this time, the system poses no direct threat to Trinidad, as the probability for Tropical Storm conditions is low (10-25%).

The initial outlook for Trinidad and Tobago is for cloudy to overcast skies with showers and medium chance (Trinidad) to
high chance (Tobago) of heavy showers/thunderstorm activity by Monday 1st July 2024. Sea conditions are expected to
become rough from early Monday morning, as Beryl moves across the Windward Islands.

A Hurricane Warning is in effect for the following islands: Barbados, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines and Grenada
and its dependencies and Tobago.

A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for the following islands: Martinique.

A Tropical Storm Watch is in effect for Dominica.

The TTMS continues to monitor this system very closely and will issue an update at 11 am today (30th June, 2024) or
earlier if the situation warrants.
