A number of Caribbean islands issued tropical storm and hurricane watches Friday afternoon ahead of Category 1 Hurricane Beryl, which the National Hurricane Center described as a "miniature" and unpredictable.

Satellite data indicate the maximum sustained winds have increased to near 75 miles per hour (120 km/h) with higher gusts, according to the National Hurricane Center.

"Upper-level winds, also known as wind shear, will likely keep Beryl from further strengthening, and it could be torn apart by the time it reaches the Lesser Antilles", News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said.

"If this trend continues, then Beryl may be downgraded to a tropical storm later this morning". Barbados Meteorological Services issued an advisory this morning at 5 a.m. and Barbadians should note storm conditions with wind-speeds between 39 mph and 73 mph (63 to 117 km/h) are possible within the watch area within 36 hours. The storm became a Category 1 hurricane while heading towards Puerto Rico, so get all the vital details.

Hurricane Beryl will lose strength as it moves into the Caribbean.

Given Beryl's tiny size, it's too soon to determine which islands may see impacts and how strong the impacts will be, but periods of heavy rain, gusty winds and at least some locally choppy seas can be expected, regardless.

Hurricane Beryl is expected to produce 2 to 4 inches of rain through Sunday across the southern Leeward Islands and northern Windward Islands. Weakening is expected once Beryl reaches the eastern Caribbean Sea on Monday July 09.

Projected path of Hurricane Beryl.

The red X shows the location of a tropical disturbance that might strengthen into a tropical depression or a tropical storm during the next few days. It is expected to remain at 75 mph through the next 24 hours, and they still believe it will dissipate after it passes Hispaniola on Tuesday. The NHC noted that it's possible for the storm to deteriorate to an open wave before hitting the Lesser Antilles on Monday.

An area of showers and thunderstorms well offshore has now become Tropical Depression 3.

"Interests along the North Carolina and SC coasts should monitor the progress of this system during the next several days", the hurricane center says.
