Flooding still possible though Tropical Storm Watch lifted

This satellite image shows Tropical Storm Beryl on Sunday

Weather forecasters say Tropical Storm Chris is likely to strengthen to a hurricane by Monday but will remain well away from the USA coast for the next two or three days.

Tropical Storm Chris continues to spin just off the North Carolina coast and is now centered roughly 150 miles to the south of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina.

Tropical Storm Chris, which continues to linger off the North Carolina coast, is expected to become a hurricane on Monday.

As the storm is positioned over very warm ocean waters, it is forecast to steadily strengthen over the next 72 hours and become a hurricane between Tuesday and Wednesday.

Weather conditions are expected to gradually improve on Tuesday.

However, the storm's path is expected to stay away from the New England shore.

The remnants of Tropical Storm Beryl are moving west-northwestward at 26 miles per hour toward the Lesser Antilles, according to the 5 p.m. EDT post.

In the next couple of days, "long-term swells. will cause an enhanced risk for development of risky rip currents through, at least, the middle of the week", the weather service said. It was seen staying well off the US coast.

The tropical storm watch for Barbados has been discontinued as Beryl "no longer poses a direct threat".

Chris may eventually impact parts of Nova Scotia and Newfoundland while transitioning into a strong non-tropical area of low pressure late in the week.

The storm that had been the Atlantic season's first hurricane has been losing power, but residents on islands hit hard by storms a year ago stocked up on food and water Saturday and prepared for possible damaging winds, rains and waves.

Environment Canada has issued a statement for Nova Scotia and parts of P.E.I. and New Brunswick, saying they could be in the path of a tropical storm that formed off the US coast Sunday morning. Chris is not expected to move over the next two or three days as it develops into a hurricane and there are no coastal warnings or watches in affect, according to the NHC.
