  • A continued quick westward to west-northwestward motion is expected during the next few days.
  • On the forecast track, the center of Beryl is expected to move across the Windward Islands late Sunday night and Monday.
  • Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 85 mph (140 km/h) with higher gusts.
  • Rapid strengthening is forecast over the next day or so, and Beryl is expected to become a dangerous major hurricane before it reaches the Windward Islands.
  • Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 15 miles (30 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles (110 km).

  • Hurricane conditions are expected in the hurricane warning area beginning Sunday night.
  • Devastating wind damage is expected where the eyewall of Beryl moves through portions of the Windward Islands.

  • Tropical storm conditions are possible within the watch area starting Sunday night.
  • Wind speeds atop and on the windward sides of hills and mountains are often up to 30 percent stronger than the near-surface winds indicated in this advisory, and in some elevated locations could be even greater.

STORM SURGE:

  • A life-threatening storm surge will raise water levels by as much as 5 to 7 feet above normal tide levels in areas of onshore flow near where Beryl makes landfall in the hurricane warning area.
  • Near the coast, the surge will be accompanied by large and destructive waves.

RAINFALL:

  • Hurricane Beryl is expected to produce rainfall totals of 3 to 6 inches across Barbados and the Windward Islands Sunday night into Monday.
