Tropical Storm Beryl is located about 11295 miles east-southeast of the Lesser Antilles and is moving to the west at 16 mph (26 km/h). There were signs of good mid-level spin, but it wasn't clear if there a closed circulation at the surface, according to the NHC's discussion.

There's a new tropical depression in the central Atlantic, and it could strengthen and become Tropical Storm Beryl as soon as today.

Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...40 percent.

Another system, dubbed Invest 96L, now centered southwest of Bermuda has a medium chance of developing into a tropical depression by the end of this week, according to the NHC.

The National Weather Service office in Slidell said the storm shouldn't become a headache for the New Orleans area.

Instead it was expected that it would dissipate on its approach to the Caribbean, east of the Lesser Antilles.
