It's all about the pressure gradient, not the lowest pressure. The reason Beryl is moving so quickly west (near 25 mph) is that the Bermuda High to its north is very strong. That, combined with a passing tropical wave (Beryl) can easily produce winds above tropical storm strength. Many tropical waves produce tropical storm-force winds in squalls, but without a circulation they're just tropical waves.

Recon is flying back into this area where we think a new LLC is or has formed.

Recon finding lower pressures in this new area of vorticity but not quite westerly winds, at least not yet.

No westerly winds found by the recon south of the new suspect area.

If we don't see a outflow boundary, I won't be surprised to see Recon clock some west winds in the next hour or so especially given the strong updraft from the tower. Seeing some decent helicity with it.

It's not just about finding A westerly wind somewhere. To be a tropical storm requires a well-defined low-level circulation, which is something Beryl definitely does not have. Convection will occasionally flare up east of the wave axis over the next 24-48 hrs, but it will have a difficult time regaining that circulation. Now, the question becomes, will the NHC still call Beryl a TS because the wave does contain some gusty TS winds in squalls? If so, then will they do the same for each wave that approaches the islands with similar winds this season?

Well wxman57, if the NHC follows the letter of the law so to speak, then no, you can not classify this system as a tropical cyclone without a well defined low level closed surface circulation.

Simple as that.

The fact that it’s moving at 20mph isn’t helping it close off again as well.

That's true, but we've seen many times in the past that once the NHC has issued warnings for tropical storm conditions they are very reluctant to downgrade an approaching system, particularly if the wave is producing a small area of tropical storm-force winds and/or if that wave may have at least a slight chance of redeveloping a circulation. I suppose they could classify it as post-tropical but continue advisories to cover that aspect. But, again, would they plan on doing the same for every tropical wave with a slight chance of developing a circulation when passing the islands? For a PTC advisory, they require a high chance of development and impact within 48 hrs.

I wonder if they can use the PTC designation here, since it may not be a TC, but warnings need to be issued

Do warnings need to be issued? Many strong tropical waves impact the islands each season with some winds to tropical storm strength in squalls (but no circulation). How are those waves handled without NHC advisories? I'm still doubtful that the NHC will downgrade Beryl just because it lost its circulation.

Yeah the NHC is caught between a rock and hard place with this situation. They can not deem this a tropical cyclone by the letter of the law. We know this.

I think we will see "the remnants of Beryl "or "regeneration possible" mentions from NHC to likely happen at least imo until a circulation is closed off.

At the same time, it's a bit stupid to declassify a system that still have strong winds and still could get back up to a TS in a short time. Could be a lot of on/off it they followed the rules strictly.

I respectfully disagree. Rules are rules. You have them in place for good reason. They are not there to be routinely bent. At this moment, this is not a tropical cyclone by definition. It is now at the moment a vigorous tropical wave. Yes it could regenerate and special statements from NHC will highlight that possibility.

DAT2

Tropical Storm Beryl Discussion Number 13
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL AL022018
1100 AM AST Sun Jul 08 2018

An Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft investigating Beryl
earlier this morning was unable to find a closed low-level center.
However, the wind data from the aircraft indicated that a sharp
through did exist northeastward of the deep convection located in
the northeastern quadrant of the larger circulation. Since that
time, a stronger burst of convection has developed over the sharp
trough, and the assumption is that the convection could have
spun up a new center. For that reason, the system is still being
considered as a tropical cyclone for this advisory. The highest
850-mb flight-level wind measured was 56 kt in the northeast quad,
which equates to about a 45-kt surface wind. However, the advisory
intensity is being maintained at 40 kt in case the recent convective
development doesn't persist. Another reconnaissance mission into
Beryl is scheduled for this evening.

The initial motion estimate is 290/20 kt. Beryl is expected to
maintain this quick west-northwestward motion through dissipation
due to the strong and broad deep-layer ridge that extends
east-to-west across most of the subtropical Atlantic Ocean. The
latest model guidance remains tightly packed about the previous
advisory track, so no significant changes were required.

For now, Beryl seems to have found a sweet spot where the vertical
wind shear is a little lower and more difluent based on water vapor
imagery. However, this localized favorable upper-level wind flow
pattern is expected to be short-lived and give way to more hostile
shear conditions by 12 hours and beyond when the shear is forecast
to increase to more than 25 kt from the west. The result should be
a rapid degeneration of the cyclone into an open wave by 24 h when
the system will be moving over the eastern Caribbean Sea. However,
the system will likely produce strong gusty winds and locally heavy
rainfall across the Leeward Islands, the Virgin Islands, and Puerto
Rico during the next couple of days. On days 3-5, there appears to
be an opportunity for the remnants of Beryl to regenerate into a
tropical cyclone when the system moves through the Bahamas and into
the southwestern Atlantic. Vertical wind shear conditions are
forecast by most of the models to be light, with even the
possibility of the development of a weak upper-level anticyclone
across the Bahamas. The combination of the favorable upper-level
wind flow pattern in conjunction with sea-surface temperatures of
28-29 deg C should yield conditions conducive for the reformation of
a tropical cyclone, although Beryl's low-level remnants are likely
to be significantly disrupted by Hispaniola and could take some time
to reform.

Key Messages:

1. Tropical storm warnings and watches are in effect for portions
of the Lesser Antilles where Beryl is forecast to bring impacts
from wind and rainfall to some of the islands beginning late today
or tonight.

2. Although Beryl is forecast to degenerate into a trough of low
pressure over the eastern Caribbean, the system is likely to produce
strong gusty winds and locally heavy rainfall across the remainder
of the Leeward Islands, the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and
Hispaniola through Tuesday.

Apparently, rules are not rules. No circulation was found yet it's still classified as a tropical storm because it might regenerate a circulation. I'm not surprised by that decision.

So you get this slender reed they're hanging on to, from the 11AM discussion:
Since that time, a stronger burst of convection has developed over the sharp
trough, and the assumption is that the convection could have
spun up a new center


"assumption", "could have" :D
