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. Tropical storms can have winds reaching 73 miles per hour.

As the storm is positioned over very warm ocean waters, it is forecast to steadily strengthen over the next 72 hours and become a hurricane between Tuesday and Wednesday.

The tropical storm, now building near the Carolinas, is expected to strengthen into a hurricane Monday and will most likely remain offshore for two to three days, forecasters said.

"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 said, adding that some of the resulting conditions could be life-threatening.

Beryl is then expected to weaken, with its post-tropical remnants charting a course for Puerto Rico and following a somewhat similar path through the Caribbean as 2017's Hurricane Maria. The storm remains in an environment conducive for gradual strengthening as it is centered over the warm waters of the Gulf Stream.

A Category 1 hurricane has wind speeds from 74 miles per hour to 95 miles per hour, according to the Saffir-Simpson hurricane wind scale (SSHS).

Government officials had said they were most anxious about those still living with tarps on their roofs. Flooding is a big concern for those still living in homes that have not been fully rebuilt since Maria.

"There may be a few rain bands along the Outer Banks and some rough surf", said Gardner.

The wind from Chris is far offshore.

Barbados' government removed at tropical storm watch.

No coastal watches or warnings were in place for Chris as of Sunday. Tropical storm force winds extend 70 miles out from the center of the storm.

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

Chris is churning up the seas along the coast, and large waves and deadly rip currents will be possible from North Carolina into the Mid-Atlantic states, the hurricane center said.
