Tropical Storm Chris to bring showers

The hurricane center said Beryl's remnant had maximum sustained winds of 40 miles per hour (65 kph) late Sunday and was moving west-northwestward at 26 miles per hour (43 kph). "The system can still cause a lot of damage regardless of whether it's a tropical storm or a hurricane".

Tropical Storm Chris is expected to become a hurricane Monday (July 9), according to the National Hurricane Center.

While Chris is expected to become a hurricane, it will stay offshore and head to sea, according to the storm center.

"Swells generated by Chris are expected to increase and affect portions of the coasts of North Carolina and the mid-Atlantic states into early next week", the NHC says.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center said the system's winds would fall below gale force during the night as it headed on a path expected to take it south of those islands.

At noon today, Chris was 594 miles west of Bermuda, with winds of about 46mph and higher gusts. Beryl has weakened significantly, meteorologists said, and tropical storm watches have been lifted for Martinique, St. Martin, St. Barthelemy, Saba, St. Maarten and St. Eustatius.

I don't know how far they are in the process, but he's going to pop up on the board [on the USADA website] on Monday or Tuesday. Brock Lesnar , considered one of the biggest PPV draws in history, is expected to return to MMA later this year.

At 11 a.m. EDT on Sunday, the storm's center was located about 160 miles south of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina with maximum sustained winds around 45 mph.

N.H.C. said this morning that interests elsewhere in the Leeward Islands, the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and the Dominican Republic should monitor the progress of Beryl.

Forecasters expect gradual weakening during the next 48 hours and it will degenerate into a trough of low pressure as it moves across the Lesser Antilles and into the eastern Caribbean Sea by Monday.

In the Caribbean, a tropical storm warning was up on Guadeloupe and Dominica and long lines were reported at grocery stores on several islands as people shopped for food and water.

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.
