Flooding still possible though Tropical Storm Watch lifted

09 July, 2018, 09:01 | Author: Darnell Taylor

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 45 miles (75 km) from the center.

The storm still had maximum sustained winds of 45 miles per hour (75 kph) late Sunday afternoon.

Chris may eventually impact parts of Nova Scotia and Newfoundland while transitioning into a strong non-tropical area of low pressure late in the week. "Tropical Storm Chris is generating VERY ROUGH surf".

"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.

Chris has the potential to strengthen into a hurricane because of warm sea surface temperatures and favourable winds.

The next hurricane advisory is scheduled for 5 p.m. Sunday.

As Chris continues to strengthen, Tropical Storm Beryl is dispersing as it "races" towards the Leeward Islands in the northeastern Caribbean Sea, according to the National Hurricane Center.

There was high threat of unsafe rip currents north of Cape Lookout, according to the National Weather Service's Newport/Morehead City office.

At 11a.m. Tropical Storm Beryl was located about 130 miles or 210 kilometres northeast of Barbados. They predict Beryl will continue to weaken over the next 24 hours, but said the storm may develop into a tropical cyclone in a few days as it moves across the Bahamas and the western Atlantic.

By Tuesday, the storm is forecast to degenerate but could still produce some gusty winds and heavy rain over Puerto Rico and Hispaniola.

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.

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.
