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.

Canada's national forecaster says the Maritimes could be in the path of a tropical storm that formed off the US coast Sunday morning.

Chris was stationary about 180 miles south-southeast of Cape Hatteras, N.C. with maximum sustained winds of 50 mph, according to the NHC 5 p.m. EDT advisory.

'Additional weakening is forecast during the next 48 hours, especially once Beryl reaches the eastern Caribbean Sea on Monday, ' the NHC said.

As Chris spins over relatively warm water it will gradually strengthen possibly becoming a hurricane late Monday evening or early Tuesday as it eventually heads to the NNE, staying away from land.

No coastal watches or warnings are effect because of Chris. Swells generated by Chris are expected to increase and affect portions of the coasts of North Carolina and the mid-Atlantic states during the next few days.
