Beryl is the first hurricane of the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season

The system is then forecast to interact with a frontal system on Sunday, which would limit any additional development.

A tropical depression strengthened into Tropical Storm Beryl on Thursday afternoon, the National Hurricane Center said.

Although what had been the Atlantic season's first hurricane was losing power, residents on islands hit hard by storms past year stocked up on food and water and prepared for possible damaging winds, rains and waves. The storm remains extremely compact, with hurricane force winds only extending 10 miles from the center of the storm and tropical storm force winds only extending out 35 miles. A second system a few hundred miles southwest of Bermuda remained disorganized Thursday morning, but forecasters said it could strengthen as it moves east, away from the USA coast.

An average hurricane season produces 12 named storms, of which 6 become hurricanes, including 3 major hurricanes, according to NOAA.

Beryl has triggered a hurricane watch for Dominica and tropical storm watches for Martinique, Guadeloupe, St. Martin and St. Barthelemy, according to a 5 p.m. weather updated from the National Hurricane Center. That's due to strong wind shear, dry air and dust, which should all combine to weaken the system, AccuWeather said. Subtropical Storm Alberto became the first named storm of the season when it formed in May, dumping heavy rain on the southern United States.

Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 80 miles per hour with higher gusts. "A fast westward to west northwestward motion is expected through the weekend", the National Hurricane Center said.

A Tropical Storm Watch means that tropical storm conditions are possible within the watch area. It was moving west at 16 miles per hour.

But it's far out at sea and is expected to weaken before it reaches the Caribbean.

The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1 to November 30, and peaks from mid-August to late-October.

Tropical Storm Beryl is churning in the Atlantic on Saturday and taking aim at the small islands that make up the eastern Caribbean.
