Chris expected to create rip currents at Jersey Shore

Rain and storm winds blowing trees

Don't panic. The National Hurricane Center says Chris, the third named storm of 2018 in the Atlantic, won't come onshore here but turn and head away from the U.S.

Tropical Storm Chris is expected to gain strength, possibly attaining hurricane status by late Tuesday or Wednesday.

It's far enough out in the ocean that there are no coastal watches or warnings in effect. The remnants are moving west-northwestward near 26 miles per hour (43 km/h), and this general motion should continue through Monday.

Chris has the potential to strengthen into a hurricane because of warm sea surface temperatures and favourable winds.

Dominica and Guadeloupe remain on tropical storm warning while Martinique, St Martin, St Barthelemy, Saba, St Eustatius and St Maarten are on tropical storm watch.

Before the storms arrived, forecasters warned residents in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands that flooding was likely due to the torrential downpours.

Mainers can expect rip currents and high seas from Tropical Storm Chris this week, according to the National Weather Service. Clouds and rain from Tropical Storm Chris will try to push in along the NC coast.

Beryl is then expected to weaken, with its post-tropical remnants charting a course for Puerto Rico and following a somewhat similar path through the Caribbean as 2017's Hurricane Maria.

Storm Chris is now building on the east coast of the United States and is likely to be upgraded to a hurricane later today. It is almost stationary, and little movement is expected through Tuesday.

A forecast released by the NHC predicted Chris will move up the coast toward MA by Thursday morning, reaching Nova Scotia on Friday before continuing north to Newfoundland, Canada.

Those traveling to North Carolina "should monitor the progress of this system", the center said.

The remnants of Storm Chris could move across the Atlantic and get caught up in different weather systems. As of 7 a.m. Monday, Chris had wind speeds of 60 miles per hour and was barely moving.
