Beryl Looses Steam, Rains Still Expected Overnight
At 500 PM AST (2100 UTC), the remnants of Beryl were located near latitude 15.2 North, longitude 60.3 West. The remnants are moving toward the west-northwest near 26 mph (42 km/h), and this general motion is expected to continue into Monday. On the forecast track, the remnants of Beryl will move across the Leeward Islands, and move near or south of the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico on Monday.
Maximum sustained winds are near 45 mph (75 km/h) with higher gusts. Slight weakening is anticipated during the next 24 hours.
However, environmental conditions are expected to become somewhat conducive for regeneration of a tropical cyclone in a few days when the remnants of Beryl are forecast to move across the Bahamas and the western Atlantic.
