Since small tropical cyclones like Beryl often have a tendency to strengthen quickly over a short period of time, continued intensification appears likely for the next day or so.

A team of meteorologists, who predicted an above-average 2018 Atlantic hurricane season in April, decreased their forecast on Tuesday.

A forecaster for AccuWeather.com said the storm will break apart due to strong wind shear as well as dry air and dust. It may reach tropical storm status soon and earn a name.

The storm showed good outflow banding, and continued convective buildup near the center of circulation based on rapid-scan imagery from GOES 16 Thursday morning.
