"At 500 PM AST (2100 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Beryl was located near latitude 10.3 North, longitude 42.8 West. Beryl is moving toward the west near 16 miles per hour (26 km/h)".

A tropical wave being tracked by hurricane forecasters blossomed into a depression in the Atlantic Thursday morning, but is expected to fizzle before reaching land.
