  • Tropical Storm Chris to strengthen; Beryl weakens to remnants

The Barbados Meteorological Services reports that at 11:00 am today, Tropical Storm Beryl was 14.4N, 57.9W which is about 130 miles or 210 km to the northeast of the island.

The storm remains in an environment conducive for gradual strengthening as it is centered over the warm waters of the Gulf Stream. A tropical storm watch is in effect for Barbados, Martinique, St. Martin, St. Barthelemy, Saba, St. Eustatius and St. Maarten.

It might reach Nova Scotia by Thursday, although Environment Canada notes forecasters are still unsure about the storm's projected track and the system's intensity. They expect Chris to become a hurricane by mid-week with additional strengthening forecast afterward.

The storm is forecast to come within 450 miles the west-northwest of Bermuda at noon on Wednesday, its closest point within the next 72 hours.

The storm that had been the Atlantic season's first hurricane has been losing power, but residents on islands hit hard by storms previous year stocked up on food and water Saturday and prepared for possible damaging winds, rains and waves. "Hence the tropical storm watch for Barbados has been discontinued", the Barbados Met Office said last this morning.
