The Carolinas could see their first hurricane of the season on Monday, as Tropical Storm Chris strengthens.

Now, it's moving west-northwest at 23 mph with 45 mph sustained winds that extend 45 miles from the storm's center, still described as "disorganized".

The National Hurricane Center in Miami said Sunday that the storm has barely moved since Saturday.

At noon today, Chris was 594 miles west of Bermuda, with winds of about 46mph and higher gusts. As a result, it is forecast to continue generating life-threatening waves and rip currents for the Mid-Atlantic beaches.

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. The hurricane center said the storm was expected to generate swells that would increase in intensity along the North Carolina and mid-Atlantic coasts.




After pushing across Dominica and moving into the Caribbean Sea the remnants of Beryl will encounter strong wind shear weakening the system even more but it still could produce some rainy weather with 30-40 miles per hour gusts for Puerto Rico and the Virgin Island late Monday and into Tuesday. Gradual weakening is forecast during the next 48 hours, and Beryl is forecast to degenerate into a trough of low pressure as it moves across the eastern Caribbean Sea on Monday.

The storm that had been the Atlantic season's first hurricane has been losing power, but residents on islands hit hard by storms a year ago stocked up on food and water Saturday and prepared for possible damaging winds, rains and waves.

Tropical Storm Chris, which continues to linger off the North Carolina coast, is expected to become a hurricane on Monday.

Puerto Rico, which was devastated by Hurricane Maria in September, remains under a state of emergency.
