Beryl strengthens in the Atlantic

Beryl strengthens in the Atlantic
Subtropical Storm Beryl has re-strengthened in the Atlantic.

(WVUE) - The remnants of Beryl moved through the Bahamas and into the Atlantic between the eastern United States and Bermuda over the last several days. Saturday morning, the circulation interacted with an upper-level trough resulting in the storm once again becoming well-defined and organized with thunderstorms near the center. That prompted the National Hurricane Center to declare Beryl a subtropical storm as of 11:00 am.

While the strongest winds and convection are relatively close to the center, the upper-level trough is giving energy to the system. That is why the regenerated Beryl is being called a subtropical storm rather than a tropical storm. Subtropical Storm Beryl is in light southwesterly flow that will steer the cyclone generally northeastward for the next two to three days. The forecast track takes Beryl over cold water north of the Gulf Stream. Little additional strengthening is expected. The system should die out over the cold water.
