Tropical Storm Beryl Special Discussion Number 2A
Wiki-Hurricanes Forecast Center
2:45 PM AST Thu Jul 5 2018
This is a special discussion to upgrade the depression to Tropical Storm Beryl with maximum winds of 45kt. Conventional imagery shows that an eye or eye-like feature has become evident for the past hour, and this feature is faintly apparent on infrared imagery as of late. In addition, a 1724Z SSMI microwave pass showed that Beryl had acquired a formative eyewall. In light of these developments, SAB revised their 1745Z estimate from T2.5/35kt to T3.0/45kt. The initial intensity is raised to 45kt accordingly.
A full discussion and updated intensity forecast will be released at 500 PM AST (2100 UTC).
