Tropical Storm Chris Forecast to Become a Hurricane Early This Week


"Tropical storm conditions are possible in the watch areas of the Lesser Antilles by later today or Monday", forecasters said, "Strong gusty winds are also possible in the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico on Monday".

The storm was traveling west-northwest at 26 miles per hour with maximum sustained winds of 45 miles per hour, meteorologists said Sunday evening.

As of 5 p.m., Beryl was about 60 miles northeast of Martinique and about 70 miles east-southeast of Dominica, according to meteorologists.

Chris formed off the coast of North Carolina on Friday and is now about 160 miles off the coast of Cape Hatteras.

Tropical Storm Beryl is disorganized but still maintaining 45 miles per hour winds and as it picks up speed in the Caribbean.

Barbadians can breathe a sigh of relief, as the island is no longer under Tropical Storm Watch.

As Beryl approached, Puerto Rico, a USA territory, was still recovering from the devastation of Maria, which struck the island on September 20, 2017, as Category 4 hurricane with maximum wind speeds of 155 miles per hour.

Tropical Storm Chris is expected to become a hurricane Monday (July 9), 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. "Interests elsewhere in the Leeward Islands, the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and the Dominican Republic should monitor the progress of Beryl". On average, the third storm forms August 13, said Phil Klotzbach, a tropical weather researcher at Colorado State University and Capital Weather Gang contributor.

Rains of up to five inches are possible in the Leeward Islands, the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico through Tuesday, according to the NHC.
