  • Tropical Depression, Hurricane Both Spinning Out in the Atlantic

Chris remains mostly stationary well east of the SC coast, centered roughly 200 miles to the south-southeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina.

Mainers can expect rip currents and high seas from Tropical Storm Chris this week, according to the National Weather Service.

The National Weather Service is warning about rip current risks from the Delaware-Maryland border southward to the central SC coast.

The storm is forecast to remain more or less stationary for 24 hours before zipping off to the Northeast on Tuesday into Wednesday.

Thousands of Puerto Ricans lost power Monday as driving rains from the remnants of Tropical Storm Beryl neared the island, which was devastated by Hurricane Maria 10 months ago.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center says the system's winds will fall below gale force during the night as it heads on a path expected to take it south of those islands.

NASA's Aqua satellite passed over Tropical Storm Beryl on July 9 at 2:35 a.m. EDT (0635 UTC) and revealed two small area of strong thunderstorms (red) where cloud top temperatures.

Anyhow, we have seen this pattern of upwelling in the past and know, that once the storm starts to move away from the cooled upwelled waters the tropical cyclone will intensify. Chris is forecast to meander off the coast of North Carolina for another day before beginning to accelerate northeast into the Atlantic Ocean Wednesday and Thursday. Beryl was the first named hurricane of the Atlantic season before being downgraded.

The storm was centered about 150 miles (245 kilometers) south of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina.

Meantime, the state of emergency and curfew implemented in Dominica on Saturday evening, ahead of a potential impact by Beryl, was discontinued yesterday morning. It also dumped torrential rain in the U.S. Virgin Island of St. Croix, with the National Weather Service warning of high winds and fallen trees and light posts. The hurricane center gave the system a 50 percent chance of becoming a tropical storm within the next five days.

Remnants of Beryl, the Atlantic season's first hurricane, brought heavy winds and rains to Puerto Rico Monday, resulting in landslides and power outages.
