Tropical Storm Chris to bring showers

Tropical Storm Chris to bring showers

Beryl is expected to produce total rain of 2 to 3 inches through Tuesday across the Leeward and the Virgin Islands, as well as Puerto Rico.

While the storm was not expected to make landfall as of Sunday afternoon, it will bring "life threatening" rough surf and unsafe rip currents along the East Coast, the weather service said.

Tropical Storm Chris is expected to strengthen and remain off the Carolinas' coast Sunday as Beryl weakened to remnants of a storm, according to the National Hurricane Center.

A tropical storm warning is up on Guadeloupe and Dominica, while a tropical storm watch has been issued for the French Caribbean territories of Martinique, St. Martin and St. Barts as well as St. Maarten, Barbados, St. Lucia, Saba and St. Eustatius.

Leo said that it was impossible to predict the positions of any of the leading candidates for the seat on abortion. Kavanaugh, 53, was picked by former President George W.

Forecasters said conditions somewhat conducive for regeneration of a tropical cyclone are expected as Beryl is forecast to move across the Bahamas and the western Atlantic.

Tropical Storm Chris has formed in the Atlantic, the third named storm of the 2018 hurricane season. Interests in Atlantic Canada, including Nova Scotia and Newfoundland, should monitor the progress of Chris for potential direct impacts later next week. It has been a mostly stationary storm so far, sustaining maximum wind speeds close to 45 miles per hour, but is expected to remain "well offshore" of the USA coast. Gradual weakening is forecast during the next 48 hours, and Beryl is forecast to degenerate into a trough of low pressure as it moves across the eastern Caribbean Sea on Monday.

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.
