Tropical storm Chris is third named storm of 2018 Hurricane season

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.

"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.

Canada's national forecaster says the Maritimes could be in the path of a tropical storm that formed off the USA coast Sunday morning.

"Based on the current track by the National Hurricane Center, it looks to be tracking well southeast of Nantucket", Buttrick said.

"It may become necessary to issue a flood warning at short notice".

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

The Tropical Storm Watch for Barbados has therefore been discontinued.

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.

Chris was upgraded from a tropical depression to a tropical storm on Sunday.

Tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 60 miles from the storm's center.

'Additional weakening is forecast during the next 48 hours, especially once Beryl reaches the eastern Caribbean Sea on Monday, ' the NHC said.

While Tropical Storm Chris is not expected to directly impact land over the next few days, rough surf and unsafe rip currents will continue to impact coastal areas of the Carolinas, mid-Atlantic and the Northeast through much of this week.

Puerto Rico, which was devastated by Hurricane Maria in September, remains under a state of emergency.
