However, the storm lost strength throughout the day Saturday and will continue to weaken as it moves west. Beryl is a tropical storm as of early Sunday with maximum sustained winds of 45 miles per hour, after starting out as a hurricane on Saturday morning.
An Air Force hurricane hunter aircraft dispatched into the center of the storm found that sustained winds are near 40 mph, and extend up to 60 miles from the center of the storm.
Tropical storm watches are in effect for Barbados, Martinique, St. Martin, St. Barthelemy, Saba, St. Eustatius and St. Maarten.

For the first 30 minutes or so it was all Belgium , the tournament's most prolific scoring team, with French defenders desperately challenging them.
The storm was forecast to weaken into a depression Monday by the time it reaches seas just south of Puerto Rico, which was devastated by Hurricane Maria in September, but that island remained under a state of emergency.
On the forecast track, the center of Beryl will approach the Lesser Antilles through Sunday, cross the island chain Sunday night, and move south of the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico on Monday. Additional weakening is likely, and the NHC said Fabio is forecast to become a remnant low in a day or two. "They should not let their guard down", he said.
The seasonal average is 12 named storms, six to seven hurricanes, three to four of which are major.

The government of Dominica said it would shut down its water system and Puerto Rico's governor warned of likely new power outages.
The leftover bits of Beryl looked set to bring two to three inches of rain to Puerto Rico, along with wind gusts up to 40 miles per hour.
