Tropical Storm Could Bring Rough Weather to NL

The weakening Tropical Storm Beryl is expected to be an open trough by the time it approaches the territory.

In the Caribbean, a tropical storm warning was up on Guadeloupe and Dominica and long lines were reported at grocery stores on several islands as people shopped for food and water.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami said Sunday that the storm has barely moved since Saturday.

Tropical Storm Chris, the third named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season, was about 180 miles (290 km) south-southeast of Cape Hatteras in North Carolina with top sustained winds of 50 miles per hour (85 kph), the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said in an advisory.

Beryl will bring a chance of tropical storm winds to the Lesser Antilles Monday before moving to the west.

Chris, now churning offshore, is expected remain just off the coast of North Carolina for a few days before turning north and east and heading away from the US coastline by Wednesday.

Netflix Testing New, Pricier ‘Ultra’ Subscription Tier
In 2013, the company first introduced a four-screen option as a more expensive alternative to their existing two-screen plans. The new plan would cost roughly $16.99 per month and it's now being tested in two different versions.

Forecasters think the storm will not move much for the next day or so.

Those living near Puerto Rico's south coast were wary of the rain forecast, since they were the first ones hit by Maria and saw some of the biggest damage.

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.

“But, as Tropical Storm Chris kicks out, it will drag a cold front on its backside which will send increasing cloudiness and decreasing stability Wednesday night and into Thursday.”. It has maximum sustained winds of 45 miles per hour or 75 km/h and is moving towards the west-northwest at 23 miles per hour or 37 km/h.

Those traveling to North Carolina "should monitor the progress of this system", the center said. There weren't any coastal watches or warnings as of early Monday. A state of emergency was in effect, the statement said. These swells could cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions up and down our coast.
