Tropical Storm Chris to bring showers

Tropical Storm Chris

Update – Tropical storm watch discontinued

Chris, now churning offshore, is expected remain just off the coast of North Carolina for a few days before turning north and east and heading away from the US coastline by Wednesday.

Forecasters expect it will gain hurricane strength later on Monday before moving up Gulfstream waters on a path that won't take it near the USA mainland but could cause life-threatening surf on East Coast beaches this week.

In the Atlantic Tropical Storm Chris is slowly beginning to strengthen with sustained winds now up to 50 miles per hour and gusts reaching 60 miles per hour.

Hurricane Beryl had been downgraded to a tropical storm by Sunday and was still on track toward Puerto Rico, Haiti, the Dominican Republic and other Caribbean islands.

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

The U.S. National Hurricane Center says the system's winds will fall below gale force during the night as it heads on a path expected to take it south of those islands.

"Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello said in a press conference late Saturday that the island could experience power outages and urged people without sturdy roofs to move in with relatives or a government shelter". Though the storm poses no threat to the US, it will cause strong rip currents along the east coast.

Tropical storm warnings remain for Dominica and Guadeloupe. However, showers and thunderstorms with heavy rain are expected across the area on Monday.

"A high wind advisory means winds of 22 to 27 knots with higher gusts, in this case, are imminent but are not strong enough to warrant a high wind warning".

Environment Canada said the storm could approach the province by Thursday but Abraham doesn't think it can maintain a hurricane status over our cooler water this time of year. Some 60,000 people still have only tarps for roofs.

The storm was sitting almost still off the SC coast on Sunday, about 160 miles south of Cape Hatteras. "We're a little bit scared because of what we've been through", said Jose Bultron, a delivery man in the southeast town of Humacao. It was centered 60 miles (95 kilometers) east of Martinique and was racing west-northwestward at 26 mph (43 kph).

The cyclone has barely moved today, and no significant motion is expected during the next day or so.
