A tropical storm watch is in effect for St. Lucia.

At 11:00 a.m. today, center of Tropical Storm Beryl is located near latitude 12.1 north, longitude 51.1 west or 679 miles or 1092 km east southeast of Saint Lucia.

The system is moving toward the west-northwest (295 degrees) near 14 mph or 22 km/h.

On this projected path, the center of the system is set to pass north of Saint Lucia near Martinique on late Sunday night.

A west-northwest motion with increased forward speed is expected during the next few days.

Maximum sustained winds are near 65 mph or 100 km/h with higher gusts.

Additional weakening is forecast during the next 48 hours.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 35 miles (55 km) from the center.

Interests elsewhere in the Lesser Antilles should continue to monitor the progress of Beryl, as additional watches could be required for other islands later today.
