Tropical Storm Beryl has weakened since yesterday and now has max winds of only 40 knots. Beryl is accelerating and now moving towards the WNW at 16 knots and continues to move into an area of increasing vertical wind shear and drier air so it is forecast calls to continue weakening, with Beryl forecast to weaken to a depression just after moving through the Lesser Antilles and then degenerate into a tropical wave over the eastern Caribbean Sea.
