Tropical Storm Chris could become hurricane


"Swells generated by Chris are expected to increase and affect portions of the coasts of North Carolina and the mid-Atlantic states into early next week", the advisory said, adding that some of the resulting conditions could be life-threatening.

The storm was expected to strengthen to a hurricane by about 8 a.m. on Monday.

Tropical Storm Chris is expected to bring swell and showers to Bermuda towards the middle of this week.

As a tropical storm, Chris has maximum sustained winds of 45 miles per hour with higher gusts, according to the National Weather Service. However, Chris is expected to remain well offshore over the next several days, moving slowly at first and then accelerating away from the United States later in the week. Tropical storms can have winds reaching 73 miles per hour.

The next hurricane advisory is scheduled for 5 p.m. Sunday.

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Beryl - the second named storm of this season - is expected to dump heavy rain over the Lesser Antilles at the end of the weekend. Gradual weakening is forecast during the next 48 hours, and Beryl is forecast to degenerate into a trough of low pressure as it moves across the eastern Caribbean Sea on Monday.

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

The tropical storm, now building near the Carolinas, is expected to strengthen into a hurricane Monday and will most likely remain offshore for two to three days, forecasters said. "Therefore, a small craft warning is also in effect", the DDM said.
