The hurricane gained strength Friday morning and was a Category 1 storm with maximum sustained winds of almost 80 miles per hour (130 kph), according to the National Hurricane Center.

With tropical-storm-force winds extending out to 35 miles from the center of circulation and hurricane-force winds extending only ten miles out, Beryl is very compact.

Hurricane Beryl has formed in the mid - Atlantic. The center's forecasters estimate Beryl will cross past the Lesser Antilles Sunday or Monday.

Trump , however, has said he wants to wait until after November's USA congressional midterms before committing to a new agreement. On Monday, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau spoke with Lopez Obrador by phone.

However, the emergence of Beryl serves as a timely reminder that, despite the long-term forecast of much less activity this season than first believed, storms are always unpredictable.

However, long-term forecasts still have Beryl staying somewhat organized into the middle of next week. Temperatures will be in the 90's.

Berg said forecasters aren't expecting it to move inland, "but it could get close enough to the coast to cause some impacts like wind and heavy rain". If it does become a named storm, the next name on the list is Chris.

He went on to a career as a sportscaster at TV and radio stations in the area around Moorhead, Minnesota, and Fargo, North Dakota. Schultz reportedly said at the time, "Let them call me what they want, I am going to speak the truth no matter what".

Beryl continues to strengthen and is now forecast to still be a hurricane as it approaches the Lesser Antilles. It had maximum sustained winds of 80 miles per hour and additional strengthening is expected during the next couple days, the National Hurricane Center said.

Another tropical wave, known as Invest 96-L, near Bermuda may also become a depression or a storm by next week, according to the National Hurricane Center.

"It is possible that we could have hurricane watches up for some of those islands by tonight", said Robbie Berg, a hurricane specialist at the National Hurricane Center.
