Tropical storm watches are in effect for Barbados, Martinique, St. Martin, St. Barthelemy, Saba, St. Eustatius and St. Maarten. "The system can still cause a lot of damage regardless of whether it's a tropical storm or a hurricane". Four of those storms are projected to be hurricanes with wind speeds of 74 miles per hour (119 kilometers per hour). It was located about 965 miles east-southeast of the Lesser Antilles.

Tropical Depression Two, in the lower right of this GOES-16 satellite image, is moving west toward the Caribbean. Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 10 miles from the center, and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 35 miles. Dominica is now under a tropical storm warning as the worst of its weather is predicted to affect the island Sunday night.

Beryl is the first mid-Atlantic storm to develop in July since 2014, while Alberto marked the fourth season in a row with a tropical system developing before the "official" start of the season on June 1. That's due to strong wind shear, dry air and dust, which should all combine to weaken the system, AccuWeather said.
