Tropical Storm Chris to bring showers

While Tropical Storm Chris is not expected to directly impact land over the next few days, rough surf and unsafe rip currents will continue to impact coastal areas of the Carolinas, mid-Atlantic and the Northeast through much of this week.

In the Atlantic Tropical Storm Chris is slowly beginning to strengthen with sustained winds now up to 50 miles per hour and gusts reaching 60 miles per hour.

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.

As of 5 p.m. Sunday, Chris remained stationary and was not expected to move in the next few days. It said Beryl will have maximum sustained winds of 45 miles per hour and occasional higher gusts.

While there are no current coastal watches or warnings in effect, these swells could cause life-threatening surf and rip-current conditions. "Local amounts up to 5 inches are possible", the hurricane center said. "Hence the tropical storm watch for Barbados has been discontinued", the Barbados Met Office said last this morning.

The Met Office assured the public however that the country is not under any tropical storm watch or warning. These shearing winds should weaken this system as it is reaching the Lesser Antilles.

It is said Beryl will "degenerate into a trough of low pressure" as it moves into the eastern caribbean sea by Monday.

Any of these passing showers or storms will be capable of producing periods of heavy downpours, rumbles of thunder and lightning and gusty winds up to 30-40 miles per hour.

"However, due to the continuing uncertainties associated with Beryl, any possible motion towards the north could bring the system closer to the islands, thus, watches or warnings cannot be ruled out", the Department of Disaster Management (DDM) said in its 11am update on Sunday.

About 7,000 houses and businesses in Puerto Rico still lack power after Hurricane Maria leveled an electricity grid that was ill-maintained before the storm.
