Subtropical cyclone Beryl formed last night and has seen little chance since it was upgraded to a Tropical Storm and names. Deep convection is minimal and is on the edge of the center of circulation. Hurricane Hunters are scheduled to fly into the storm and investigate this cylclone's intensity.
A building HPR (High Pressure Ridge) is expected to keep this storm moving SW or WSW during the next day or so, followed by a Westerly turn late on Sunday. The center of circulation will be near the Northern Florida coast or Georgia Sunday night or early Monday.
