Tropical Storm Chris to avoid New England

Sandra Phillips | 09 July, 2018, 09:03

As Chris continues to strengthen, Tropical Storm Beryl is dispersing as it "races" towards the Leeward Islands in the northeastern Caribbean Sea, according to the National Hurricane Center.

As Chris spins over relatively warm water it will gradually strengthen possibly becoming a hurricane late Monday evening or early Tuesday as it eventually heads to the NNE, staying away from land.

"Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Chris formed off the Carolinas, and the U.S. National Hurricane Center said it was likely to grow into a hurricane while heading to the northeast, roughly parallel to the coast".

As of 5 p.m. Sunday, Chris remained stationary and was not expected to move in the next few days.

Weather forecasters say Tropical Storm Chris is likely to strengthen to a hurricane by Monday but will remain well away from the US coast for the next two or three days. It was centered 210 miles (335 kilometers) east of Martinique and was moving west-northwestward at 23 mph (37 kph).

Forecasters say the storm's remnants are expected to produce 2 to 3 inches (5 to 8 centimeters) of rain, with up to 5 inches (13 centimeters) in isolated areas.

No coastal watches or warnings are effect because of Chris.

Tropical Storm Beryl is moving west-northwestward at 26 miles per hour toward the Lesser Antilles, according to the 8 a.m. EDT post.

Tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 60 miles from the storm's center.

There was high threat of risky rip currents north of Cape Lookout, according to the National Weather Service's Newport/Morehead City office. "Hence the tropical storm watch for Barbados has been discontinued", the Barbados Met Office said last this morning.

Forecasters expect gradual weakening during the next 48 hours and it will degenerate into a trough of low pressure as it moves across the Lesser Antilles and into the eastern Caribbean Sea by Monday.

Tropical storm warnings remain for Dominica and Guadeloupe.

Puerto Rico, which was devastated by Hurricane Maria in September, remains under a state of emergency.
