Fortunately its a v small storm, but pretty impressive how quickly it formed. Local forecasters are saying it will fizzle out before  leeward islands thanks to Sahara dust.

It's looking like strong vertical wind shear will put an end to Beryl as she approaches the Caribbean. The conditions down there are currently quite hostile for storms. Any trying to form would likely have their tops sheared off, and in Beryl's case cause degeneration as she moves into the area. Here's the latest GFS 5-day wind shear anomaly forecast for 850 - 200 hPa to 10th July:

Accuweather also tweeting that "Newly formed Atlantic Tropical Storm Beryl may not survive trip into Caribbean".

Interestingly, Phil Klotzbach tweeting that this problem may persist well into the hurricane season:

"Latest Climate Forecast System model runs predict much stronger than normal vertical wind shear during August-October in Caribbean & a bit stronger than normal further east in tropical Atlantic. If this verifies, would likely reduce Atlantic #hurricane activity."

Beryl is such a small storm that it could easily weaken with shear or Sahara dust. It looks like that is what is happening this morning. 

It's track goes over Dominica which is still recovering from Maria last September.
