Earlier, the NHC described the storm as "Tiny Beryl" because of "its very small size".

According to the National Hurricane Center, as of 5 is located about 230 miles south-southeast off Cape Hatteras, North Carolina.

Hurricane Beryl, which the National Hurricane Center described as a small storm in terms of area coverage but a "brazen" one, was forecast to pass through the Lesser Antilles late Sunday or Monday. The storm, which is now a Category 1, is expected to arrive in the Lesser Antilles by late Sunday or early Monday.

The hurricane centre said Beryl could strengthen a bit more in the next few days but predicted it would begin weakening after entering the Caribbean late Sunday or early Monday.

There are now no coastal watches or warnings in effect. While no watches or warnings are yet in effect, forecasters say hurricane watches could be needed for some of the islands by tonight. The projected wind speeds also came down a tad to an expected peak at 90 miles per hour in two days, but forecasters stressed there was a lot of uncertainty surrounding Beryl.

Tropical Storm Beryl has become the first Atlantic hurricane after strengthening overnight, according to National Hurricane Center.

Strong wind shear and dry air is expected to end Beryl's run before it reaches the United States.

Tropical Depression #3 is drifting toward the north.

The Atlantic basin had its first tropical cyclone crowned hurricane status less than 24 hours after becoming a depression.

The path of the relatively tiny Hurricane Beryl is now tracking westwards through the Atlantic in the general direction of Puerto Rico. After that, it will track through the northern Caribbean and head towards Haiti and the Dominican Republic. Even though it's not expected to become a threat to the US mainland, the hurricane's future remains uncertain, as the forecast keeps changing.
