Tropical Storm Chris could become hurricane

Tropical Storm Chris, the third named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season, was about 180 miles (290 km) south-southeast of Cape Hatteras in North Carolina with top sustained winds of 50 miles per hour (85 kph), the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said in an advisory.

As some East Coast residents gear up for Tropical Storm Chris, New Englanders can rest easy knowing the storm will avoid the area, forecasters said.

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Beryl - the second named storm of this season - is expected to dump heavy rain over the Lesser Antilles at the end of the weekend.

However, the storm's path is expected to stay away from the New England shore.

The hurricane center said there was a possibility that Beryl's remnant could regenerate into a tropical cyclone in a few days while moving across the Bahamas. These swells could cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions up and down our coast.

As a tropical storm, Chris has maximum sustained winds of 45 miles per hour with higher gusts, according to the National Weather Service.

Mickelson has openly said that the two probably should have always gotten along this well, but they've "turned the corner". While they were fierce rivals then, it may be their more relaxed relationship that has brought them together once again.

Although Chris is likely to remain offshore of the U.S. East Coast, it will still bring impacts for beachgoers.

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

Tropical Storm Chris is expected to bring swell and showers to Bermuda towards the middle of this week.

The storm that had been the Atlantic season's first hurricane has been losing power, but residents on islands hit hard by storms past year stocked up on food and water Saturday and prepared for possible damaging winds, rains and waves.

A flash-flood watch was in effect for Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands from late Sunday through Monday evening, NWS San Juan said on Twitter. On average, the third storm forms August 13, said Phil Klotzbach, a tropical weather researcher at Colorado State University and Capital Weather Gang contributor. Tropical storm watches were in effect for Dominica and Guadeloupe.
