Beryl Just Became The First Hurricane Of The 2018 Season
Well, that didn't take long.
It is Hurricane Season after all, so it was only a matter of time till we saw our first Cat 1 storm this year, and now we have one.
Beryl has sustained maximum winds of 75 miles per hour, and is currently travelling West at 14 miles per hour.
It's being forecast to weaken as it approaches the Lesser Antilles but is still expected to bring rain and strong gusts to the islands next week.
We'll be sure to share any more updates and be sure to share any important news with @LovinTCI, we'd love to hear from you out there.

In addition to #Beryl, there is a disturbance off the East Coast where development is possible. Will impact the Carolinas regardless.— Erin Thomas (@ErinThomasWx) July 6, 2018
