Tropical Storm Chris to bring showers

The storm was expected to strengthen to a hurricane by about 8 a.m. on Monday. A man died in the rough surf in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina, on Saturday, when Chris was still a tropical depression.

According to the 5:00 a.m. advisory, the center of Tropical Storm Beryl was located near latitude 13.7 North, longitude 56.0 West. Beryl is moving toward the west-northwest near 20 miles per hour (31 km/h) and this motion with an increase in forward speed is expected during the next couple of days.

A third named Atlantic storm that formed off the North Carolina coast early on Sunday was forecast to become a hurricane on Monday, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said, while Tropical Storm Beryl looked set to threaten Puerto Rico.

The storm was sitting almost still off the SC coast on Sunday, about 160 miles south of Cape Hatteras. The storm is forecast to intensify into a hurricane over the next several days but remain off the coast before zipping off toward Newfoundland late in the week. It is now a minimal tropical storm, with peak winds of 40 miles per hour. They predict Beryl will continue to weaken over the next 24 hours, but said the storm may develop into a tropical cyclone in a few days as it moves across the Bahamas and the western Atlantic.

At noon today, Chris was 594 miles west of Bermuda, with winds of about 46mph and higher gusts.

On this present position and the latest available forecast track, Tropical Storm Beryl no longer poses a direct threat to Barbados.

An "all-star" team of 18 divers entered the caves this afternoon as the boys and their families were notified of the development. Chalongchai Chaiyakam said. "Their health and their minds are ready and they have knowledge of the mission", added Narongsak.

Tropical storm warnings remain for Dominica and Guadeloupe.

The Tropical Storm Watch for Barbados has therefore been discontinued.

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.

Tropical Storm Beryl is moving rapidly westward toward the Lesser Antilles at the eastern entrance of the Caribbean Sea.

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