It was centered 865 miles (1392 kilometers) east-southeast of the Lesser Antilles and was moving west at 14 mph (22 kph). Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 10 miles (20 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 35 miles (55 km).
While Beryl is forecast to quickly weaken or dissipate before reaching the Lesser Antilles, some rain and wind are expected to impact those islands early next week.

The National Hurricane Center forecast cone that we show on WECT products is the official and best resource for storm intensity and track information. "Gradual weakening is anticipated during the next 48 hours, and Beryl is forecast to degenerate into a trough of low pressure as it moves across the Lesser Antilles and into the eastern Caribbean Sea by Monday".
The storm will linger off the North Carolina coast through Monday, and then begin northeast late Monday night through Friday, the NWS reports. Forecasters say the storm's remnants are expected to produce 2 to 3 inches (5 to 8 centimeters) of rain, with up to 5 inches (13 centimeters) in isolated areas.
