Environment Canada issues statement for the Maritimes about Tropical Storm Chris

Tropical storms can have winds reaching 73 miles per hour.

Chris has barely moved since Saturday and is not expected to make any significant movement for the next few days.

Buttrick said local impacts may include building seas and an increased risk for rip currents, but strong winds and rainfall won't be a concern.

"On this present position and the latest available forecast track Tropical Storm Beryl no longer poses a direct threat to Barbados. Some deterioration in sea conditions is still expected as Beryl moves over the area with swells forecast to peak around three metres (10 feet)", the Met office warned in its last advisory on the system. "Therefore, a small craft warning is also in effect", the DDM said.


Tropical Storm Chris, the third named storm of this season, is forecast to become a hurricane by Monday, according to the National Hurricane Center.

But the National Weather Service said Beryl remained on track to move south of the U.S. Virgin Islands and across western Puerto Rico on Monday, potentially bringing 2 to 3 inches (5-8 cm) of rain and gusty winds to the U.S. territory still recovering from the devastation wrought past year by Hurricane Maria.

The tropical storm, now building near the Carolinas, is expected to strengthen into a hurricane Monday and will most likely remain offshore for two to three days, forecasters said.

Tropical storm-force winds extend outward up to 45 miles from the centre but forecasters anticipate Beryl to gradually weaken during the next 36 hours.
