Tropical wave under watch in southeastern Caribbean

Washington, Jun 26 (Pressa Latina) A tropical wave that generates rains and thunderstorms in the southeastern Caribbean Sea has a low chance of becoming a hurricane, but weather agencies are watching it. The US National Hurricane Center (NHC) said on Tuesday that it might become a tropical hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico later this weekend.

The institution and similar ones in the region are monitoring the convection of this system, as it might generate flash floods and high waves of two to three meters in height, as well as strong winds with gusts of around 50 kilometers per hour.

So far, it gives way to a rainy and constant storm over Aruba, Curacao, as well as Caracas and Maracaibo in Venezuela, including in Maicao and Cabo de la Vela in Colombia.

If it becomes a tropical hurricane, the name that corresponds to it according to the official list of names of tropical storms in 2024 would be “Beryl.”
