Formed in the Atlantic tropical storm "beryl"

Subtropical Storm Alberto came ashore on the Florida Panhandle in late May. Despite this early season activity some forecasters are expecting the rest of the season to be below average

Hurricane season started early this year with the development of Subtropical Storm Alberto, the first named cyclone of the Atlantic hurricane season.

The latest forecast from the U.S. National Hurricane Center said, "At 1100 AM AST [1500 UTC], the center of Tropical Depression Two was located near latitude 10.2 North, longitude 41.4 West".

Maximum sustained winds are near 35 miles per hour (55 kph) with higher gusts.

Even if the system degenerates into a tropical wave, as forecast, an uptick in shower activity, including some locally heavy rain, and gusty winds are expected in the Lesser Antilles Sunday into Monday.

Jordan Pickford has claimed England's supporters have been key towards the team's march into the World Cup semi-finals . Zlatan initiated the bet (naturally), offering to buy Becks dinner "where ever you want in the world" if England win.

"Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 50 miles per hour (85 km/h) with higher gusts". Tropical storm-force winds by Saturday morning extended up to 35 miles from the storm's center. Beryl has a chance to remain a hurricane for a couple of days before strong upper-level winds are likely to weaken or destroy it as it reaches the Caribbean Islands.

Beryl is not the only item of note in the tropics as we wrap up the first week of July.

"Temperatures at the surface of the tropical Atlantic Ocean have become remarkably colder than normal", wrote Phil Klotzbach, a Capital Weather Gang contributor and the lead author of the Colorado State outlooks.

This will give Beryl a rather short lifespan over the next few days and limits any significant threats for the Caribbean or Gulf of Mexico, despite the fact it is strengthening in the short term. Tropical storm watches were in place in Barbados, St. Lucia, Martinique, Guadeloupe, St. Martin, St. Barthelemy, Saba and St. Eustatius, according to the hurricane center. The change in forecast is due to the water temperature in the Atlantic being cooler than average and because of the developing El Niño, which suppresses the Atlantic hurricane season.
