In the middle of July in the 2006 Atlantic hurricane season, there was a tropical storm that had gone unnoticed during the hurricane season, and therefore was not named. Had this tropical storm been discovered, it would've been named Beryl, since it formed before the storm which became Tropical Storm Beryl did. This storm was only briefly a tropical storm, forming from an extratropical low by the same cold front that spawned the low-pressure area that would become Tropical Storm Beryl. The unnamed tropical storm degenerated into a remnant area of low-pressure southeast of Nova Scotia shortly after forming. The remnant low-pressure area passed over Atlantic Canada, bringing some rain and some wind to the area, but little else. There are no damage or fatality reports as a result of this unnamed tropical storm.

Meteorological History

In the middle of July, a cold front moved off the East Coast of the United States and spawned a series of of low-pressure areas. Two of these low-pressure areas were able to develop into tropical storms. The first low-pressure area moved all the way south until it was a few hundred miles east of the coast of North Carolina. This low-pressure area is the one that would become Tropical Storm Beryl. The second area of low-pressure that developed was also spawned off by the cold front, but at a much more northerly location than the one that spawned Beryl. This low-pressure area became a tropical storm on July 17, then it moved to the northeast, reaching its peak of 50 mph and made landfall in Atlantic Canada on July 18 with rain and wind, though no damage or fatalities were reported as a result of the storm. After making landfall, the remnant low continued out to sea, where it dissipated later that day.

Lack of Retirement

Since the storm was unidentified throughout the hurricane season of 2006, and therefore was not named, it was not retired. Had it been named, it wouldn't have been retired most likely anyway, due to its very minimal effects.
