This Is Tropical Storm Chris' Path and Forecast

The swells generated from Tropical Storm Chris are expected to cause "life threatening" current conditions, the National Weather Service says, and beachgoers and boaters are advised to avoid the waters if possible.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center said the remnants of Beryl would move south of the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico on Monday.

NHC noted "An area of showers and thunderstorms associated with the remnants of Beryl is producing locally heavy rainfall and strong gusty winds over the northeastern Caribbean Sea and the northern Leeward Islands".

As for Beryl it has lose its circulation and tropical characteristics making it just a remnant low with winds of 45 miles per hour and gust up to 60 miles per hour.

Forecasters said Beryl probably would dissipate once it moved south of Haiti and the Dominican Republic on Tuesday or Wednesday.

Meteorologist Marshall Alexander told The Associated Press that officials were anxious about those living with tarps on their roofs after Maria slammed into Dominica as a Category 5 storm a year ago, killing dozens of people.

The remnants of Hurricane Beryl are causing power outages in Puerto Rico, where officials have been scrambling for months to fix the devastation caused by last year's Hurricane Maria.


There was high threat of unsafe rip currents north of Cape Lookout, according to the National Weather Service's Newport/Morehead City office.

The Atlantic hurricane season, which runs from June 1 to November 30, spared Bermuda past year, but battered the Caribbean as well as the United States.

"With additional strengthening, Chris will likely become a hurricane sometime Monday", Bridges said.

A tropical storm warning was issued for Dominica, which was battered by Hurricane Maria in September as a Category 5 storm.

Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rossello met with his Cabinet and weather experts on Sunday to prepare for Beryl's arrival, Rossello's office said in a statement.

Tropical Storm Chris continued to meander just off the Carolina coast on Monday, the hurricane center said. Chris is not quiet there yet as a hurricane but there are strong indications this will happen quickly on Tuesday. On average, the third storm forms August 13, said Phil Klotzbach, a tropical weather researcher at Colorado State University and Capital Weather Gang contributor.

The National Hurricane Center said Beryl degenerated into a tropical wave Sunday afternoon, citing satellite data that suggested there was no longer a closed low-level center of circulation in their 5 pm advisory.
