Tropical Storm Chris forms from depression off Carolina coast

Tropical Storm Beryl, the first Atlantic hurricane of the 2018 season, is expected to further weaken as it approaches the Lesser Antilles and Puerto Rico in the next couple of days.

Beryl is expected to remain on its current path, crossing the Lesser Antilles Sunday and moving near or south of the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico Monday, according to the NHC.

At 11 p.m., the center of Tropical Storm Beryl was located near latitude 13.1 North, longitude 54.3 West. Beryl is moving toward the west-northwest near 18 miles per hour and this motion with an increase in forward speed is expected during the next couple of days.

Off the U.S. East Coast, Tropical Storm Chris was centered about 160 miles (260 kilometers) south of Cape Hatteras, with maximum sustained winds of 45 mph (75 kph).

Colorado State's renewed forecast released on Monday is now predicting there will be 11 named storms in the Atlantic, including May's Subtropical Storm Alberto, with just one major hurricane, a Category 3 or above, TWC said.

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. A Tropical Storm Watch is in effect for Barbados, St. Lucia, Martinique, St. Martin, and St. Barthelemy, Saba and St. Eustatius and St. Maarten.

"While we don't expect a direct hit to take place on Puerto Rico, even some of those outer bands. have the potential to knock out power" on the USA territory, where Maria triggered months of power outages, CNN meteorologist Allison Chinchar said.

As it still moves over warmer waters, Chris will likely reach Category 1 hurricane strength with maximum winds upwards of 75 miles per hour.

Tropical storm warnings are in effect for Dominica and Guadeloupe.

Minimal impacts are expected from this weakening tropical storm. More than 1,500 power customers remain in the dark more than nine months after Maria, and some 60,000 people still have only tarps for roofs. It forms when sea temperatures in the tropical Pacific are warmer than average, and cause higher speed, high-level winds across the southern United States, reducing tropical storm formation.

"As is the case with all hurricane seasons, coastal residents are reminded that it only takes one hurricane making landfall to make it an active season for them".

It said Beryl could reform into a tropical cyclone in a few days when its remnants are forecast to move through the Bahamas.
