  • LIAT continues to monitor Tropical Storm Beryl which is currently moving towards the Lesser Antilles

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.

Tropical Storm Beryl has picked up speed in movement, but not winds, according to Sunday's 11 a.m. advisory from the National Hurricane Center.

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.


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.

It however warned that "pockets of moderate to heavy showers and occasional gusty winds are still possible" with rainfall accumulations of one to two inches with isolated higher amounts. A tropical storm warning is already in effect for that area, with hurricane conditions possible beginning on Tuesday. However, Chris is expected to remain well offshore over the next several days, moving slowly at first and then accelerating away from the United States later in the week. It has been a mostly stationary storm so far, sustaining maximum wind speeds close to 45 miles per hour, but is expected to remain "well offshore" of the US coast.

"On the forecast track, the center of Beryl or its remnants will approach the Lesser Antilles today, cross the island chain tonight, and move near or south of the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico on Monday", the advisory said.
