  • Rain and storm winds blowing trees

The National Weather Service in San Juan, Puerto Rico, issued a hazardous weather outlook for the U.S. Virgin Islands Sunday afternoon as Tropical Storm Beryl entered the Caribbean, bringing lots of rain, high winds, and possible flooding.

As some East Coast residents gear up for Tropical Storm Chris, New Englanders can rest easy knowing the storm will avoid the area, forecasters said.

A tropical storm that formed off the North Carolina coast early on Sunday was forecast to become a hurricane on Monday, forecasters said, while the remnants of Tropical Storm Beryl looked set to bring heavy rain to Puerto Rico.

“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.”.

However, the storm's path is expected to stay away from the New England shore.

After the storm passes through the Caribbean early next week, "there appears to be an opportunity for the remnants of Beryl to regenerate into a tropical cyclone when the system moves through the Bahamas and into the southwestern Atlantic", the National Hurricane Center said. Meteorologists said the swells can result in life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.

The storm, 150 miles south of Cape Hatteras, packs maximum sustained winds of 40 mph. It was seen staying well off the USA coast. Interests in Atlantic Canada, including Nova Scotia and Newfoundland, should monitor the progress of Chris for potential direct impacts later next week. On average, the third storm forms August 13, said Phil Klotzbach, a tropical weather researcher at Colorado State University and Capital Weather Gang contributor. Hurricane force winds for a Category 1 storm are 74 to 95 miles per hour. Tropical storm warnings were in effect for Dominica and Guadeloupe.

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.

McNoldy noted the simultaneous presence of two July tropical storms, Beryl and Chris, hasnt happened since 2011, when Bret and Cindy roamed the Atlantic.
