The National Hurricane Center updated that a tropical depression strengthened into Tropical Storm Beryl on Thursday afternoon.

Beryl had winds of 40 mph on Thursday mid-afternoon and was traveling to the west at 16 mph. It was located about 1,330 miles east-southeast of the Lesser Antilles, a chain of islands in the eastern Caribbean Sea.

AcuWeather said, however, that the storm should fall apart by the time it arrives at the Lesser Antilles, due to strong wind shear, dry air, and dust, which should all contribute to weakening the system.

The hurricane center added that remnants of the storm should still bring locally heavy rains and gusty winds to parts of the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico on Sunday and Monday. A separate storm, meanwhile, could develop off the U.S. East Coast over the following days, but unlikely to directly impact land

I'm not saying they're wrong, but the same prediction was made of Hurricane Andrew when I was a kid.
