The system is forecast to move slowly northwestward and could meander or stall near the North Carolina coast over the weekend. 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.
The depression is moving toward the north-northwest near 5 miles per hour and is forecast to slow down and meander well offshore of the coast of the Carolinas through Monday. It was located 1,045 miles east-southeast of the Lesser Antilles on Friday morning and was moving west at 15 mph.
Rapid changes in intensity - both up and down - are possible in coming days.
However, heavy rains and occasional gusty winds are in the forecast for Barbados for Sunday night into Monday, with rainfall accumulations of 25 to 50 mm (one to two inches) expected as the system passes to the north of the island. Residents of the Lesser Antilles should closely monitor the storm.
"Because of the small size of Beryl and anticipated weakening, widespread wind damage is not expected", said AccuWeather meteorologist Jake Sojda.
There is now the chance Beryl may survive in some form into the central Caribbean Sea early next week, though it is expected to have been weakened to some degree, possibly completely ripped apart, from wind shear by that time.
