Tropical Storm On Saturday, Beryl was intensifying as it moved quickly westward toward the Caribbean.

The National Hurricane Center said Beryl, the second named storm of 2024 in the Atlantic Ocean, could become the year’s first hurricane as early as tonight or Sunday.

Beryl is forecast to approach the Caribbean by then, and Barbados is now under hurricane watch.

On Saturday, the hurricane center was also tracking two other tropical disturbances, both of which might develop into tropical depressions in the coming days. (The following names on the 2024 storm list are Chris and Debby.)

Barbados is the only island under surveillance so far. According to the hurricane center, Beryl is forecast to travel across the Windward Islands late Sunday night and into Monday.

The official forecast tracks what might be Hurricane Beryl south of Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands with the storm’s center moving near or directly over Jamaica on Wednesday, when the forecast period ends.

However, the hurricane center warned that track mistakes on Days 4 and 5 might be significant.

It is too early to tell if or when Beryl will affect the United States. The hurricane center predicted that Beryl will bring a 2- to 4-foot storm surge to Barbados and 3 to 6 inches of rain to the Windward Islands

Some hurricane watchers believe the Atlantic basin activity looks more like August than June, with two new tropical disturbances to watch as of Saturday.

One of them is likely to migrate toward the southern Gulf of Mexico’s Bay of Campeche, but will not pose a threat to the United States.

That tropical storm has a 40% probability of becoming a tropical depression in the following two days and is predicted to travel inland along Mexico’s Gulf Coast early next week.

The second system, which is following closely after Beryl will also be worth watching.
