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

Tropical Storm Chris continues to spin just off the North Carolina coast and is now centered roughly 150 miles to the south of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina.

Tropical Storm Beryl, downgraded from a category one hurricane, remains on a slow course towards the Lesser Antilles.

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.

While Chris is expected to become a hurricane, it will stay offshore and head to sea, according to the storm center.

"It is going to meander a bit for the next 24 hours off the Carolina coast, and then it's expected to start heading northeast", Kim Buttrick, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service said.

As Beryl approached, Puerto Rico, a US territory, was still recovering from the devastation of Maria, which struck the island on September 20, 2017, as Category 4 hurricane with maximum wind speeds of 155 miles per hour.

The tropical storm, which was named Sunday morning, is expected to continue gaining strength as it hovers over the Gulf stream's warm waters in the Atlantic Ocean, AccuWeather.com reports.

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 a year ago by Hurricane Maria.
