BERYL WEAKENS TO TROPICAL STORM STATUS… The National Hurricane Center has downgraded what was Hurricane Beryl to a tropical storm late this morning. The effects of atmospheric shear are already being felt by the system. Shear will be on the increase, drastically, over the next 2 days. There is a high (and increasing) chance Beryl will be ripped apart in the days ahead as it moves into the Caribbean Sea.The Hurricane Watch that was in effect for Dominica has been cancelled. It has been replaced by a Tropical Storm Warning. Several of the other Lesser Antilles are under a Tropical Storm Watch.Beryl will not affect Alabama or northwest Florida and there is a very, very high chance it will never affect the United States.TROPICAL DEPRESSION #3 UNORGANIZED… The tropical depression off the coast of North Carolina remains fairly unorganized. An Air Force Reconnaissance aircraft is currently investigating the system. This system will also likely stay far enough offshore that it won’t be a direct threat to the U.S. No impacts for Alabama or northwest Florida!
