Tropical storm Chris is third named storm of 2018 Hurricane season

LOLA wave model guidance valid on Monday afternoon

Increased swells were expected for the coasts of North Carolina and mid-Atlantic states, with the warning: “These swells could case life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.”. A tropical storm becomes a hurricane when its top sustained winds reach 74 miles per hour (120 kph).

A flash-flood watch remained in effect for Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands from late Sunday through Monday evening, NWS San Juan said on Twitter.

Tropical Storm Chris is shown off the eastern coast of North and SC, U.S., in this satellite image July 9, 2018 at 16:12 UTC.

At least 24,000 homes and businesses were in the dark in Puerto Rico as the remnants of Hurricane Beryl brought rain and strong winds to the island.

High surf and risky rip currents are expected along parts of the Carolina and mid-Atlantic coasts through early week.

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.

How the higher unemployment rate is actually a good sign
Which is too bad ... because this is a jobs report the administration of USA president Donald Trump should brag about. Nonetheless, at 6.6 million, the number of unemployed Americans could again be smaller than current job openings.

Chris will also impact our area with rip currents so be extra careful in the water this week. While the storm isn't forecast to move much in the next day, a trough will push southeast towards the Carolina coast.

Puerto Ricos governor had feared new power outages if Beryl passed near his island as a tropical storm as originally forecast.

The combination of Tropical Storm Chris and an area of High pressure to our west will make for a breezy north wind.

The US National Hurricane Centre said: “Chris has been almost stationary the past several hours, and little motion is expected during the next day or so.

As of Monday morning, Chris was still meandering in one spot, about 200 miles off the coast of the Carolinas.

Most forecasts so far predict that the storm's centre will track off Nova Scotia's east coast but the province is still likely to experience heavy rain and high winds.
