Maritimes could be in path of Tropical Storm Chris, Environment Canada says

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Chris continues to spin off of the coast of the Carolinas.

All the while sitting not too far off the U.S. East Coast.

The remnant of Tropical Storm Beryl has rushed over Dominica but then dissipated, lessening the threat to Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, which had braced for heavy rains and strong winds less than a year after being battered by hurricanes.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami said Sunday that the storm has barely moved since Saturday but was likely to strengthen in the coming days.

What's the path for Chris?

Tropical Storm Chris is expected to bring swell and showers to Bermuda towards the middle of this week. Then it is expected to turn to the northeast and speed away from the US on Wednesday and Thursday. The storm's center was expected to pass just south of the island.

The territory could experience two to three inches or rain, and that height can be higher in some locations.




No coastal watches or warnings are in effect, but forecasters say swells along the coasts of North Carolina and the mid-Atlantic states could produce unsafe surf and rip current conditions.

Residents and vacationers along the coast should be aware and keep a close eye on the weather forecast.

In the next couple of days, "long-term swells. will cause an enhanced risk for development of unsafe rip currents through, at least, the middle of the week", the weather service said. At 11 a.m. EDT, the storm's center was located about 160 miles (260 kilometers) south of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina. Nevertheless, we have a string of great beach days ahead of us here in New England, and Chris could send some rough surf and risky rip currents toward our beaches Wed-Friday.

It notes that "there is a good deal of uncertainty at this time in the forecast track and intensity of this system" but expects that if the track stays as forecast that it will begin to issue storm bulletins starting Tuesday morning.

Tropical storm warnings were in effect for Dominica and Guadeloupe.

However, Beryl may not be over and done with.

Tuesday a weak area of high pressure could move over Acadiana dropping rain chances down to about 20-30% but every other day this week rain chances will be up around 40-60% during the afternoon hours.
