Tropical Storm Chris set to become hurricane Monday, Beryl weakens

Beryl at 11am on July 8

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Chris, is bobbing 160 miles south of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina.

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.

Hurricane Beryl had been downgraded to a tropical storm by Sunday and was still on track toward Puerto Rico, Haiti, the Dominican Republic and other Caribbean islands. Then it is expected to turn to the northeast and speed away from the US on Wednesday and Thursday. "The system can still cause a lot of damage regardless of whether it's a tropical storm or a hurricane".

They say storm could attain hurricane status by late Tuesday or early Wednesday.

The storm is, however, forecast to maintain this strength as it heads west over the next day, prompting tropical storm warnings for Dominica and Guadeloupe, where gusty winds and one to three inches of rain are possible.

The hurricane center cautioned those along the coast to keep an eye on Chris but think its worst weather will stay offshore.

A number of beaches along the Outer Banks on Sunday are not open for swimmers.

McNoldy noted the simultaneous presence of two July tropical storms, Beryl and Chris, hasnt happened since 2011, when Bret and Cindy roamed the Atlantic.

At noon today, Chris was 594 miles west of Bermuda, with winds of about 46mph and higher gusts. Tropical storm force winds extend 70 miles out from the center of the storm.

However, Beryl may not be over and done with.

After the storm passes through the Caribbean early next week, "there appears to be an opportunity for the remnants of Beryl to regenerate into a tropical cyclone when the system moves through the Bahamas and into the southwestern Atlantic", the National Hurricane Center said.

Forecasters said conditions could become a bit more favorable for the storm to regenerate later this week.
