Tropical Storm Beryl is expected to strengthen into a hurricane on Sunday evening or Monday as it moves toward the Caribbean.

A hurricane warning was issued for several Caribbean islands on Saturday. The storm could bring heavy rains, hurricane-force winds and dangerous waves when it reaches some islands in the Lesser Antilles, a group in the Caribbean, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) said in a morning warning.

The storm would be the first hurricane of the season. Researchers have predicted a particularly intense hurricane season. Beryl’s early arrival made it one of the few storms in history to form in the region so early in the year, the National Hurricane Center said.

Beryl is expected to strengthen quickly, the NHC said Saturday. By midday, the storm was located about 820 miles east-southeast of Barbados and reached maximum sustained winds of 65 mph.

A hurricane warning has been issued for Barbados, St. Lucia, Grenada and St. Vincent and the Grenadines. A tropical storm warning has been issued for Martinique and Tobago.

The storm is expected to bring 3 to 6 inches of rain to Barbados and the Leeward Islands, which are part of the Lesser Antilles. Hurricane-level winds are possible in the affected areas through Sunday night or Monday morning, the NHC said.
