Don't panic. The National Hurricane Center says Chris, the third named storm of 2018 in the Atlantic, won't come onshore here but turn and head away from the U.S.

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. "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.

The hurricane center said there was a possibility that Beryl's remnant could regenerate into a tropical cyclone in a few days while moving across the Bahamas.

There is a moderate risk of rip currents for most of the local beaches, except for Cramer Park beach in Saint Croix, with a high risk of rip currents, the weather service said.

All the while sitting not too far off the U.S. East Coast.

The storm was traveling west-northwest at 26 miles per hour with maximum sustained winds of 45 miles per hour, meteorologists said Sunday evening.

At that point, a cold front should absorb Chris and rapidly sweep it to the north-northeast toward Nova Scotia and Newfoundland.

Tropical Storm Beryl is moving rapidly westward toward the Lesser Antilles at the eastern entrance of the Caribbean Sea.

Any of these passing showers or storms will be capable of producing periods of heavy downpours, rumbles of thunder and lightning and gusty winds up to 30-40 miles per hour.

A separate system, Tropical Storm Chris, lingered off the Atlantic Coast on Sunday and is expected to remain in place for several days, according to forecasters.

Those living near Puerto Rico's south coast were wary of the rain forecast, since they were the first ones hit by Maria and saw some of the biggest damage. Tropical storms can have winds reaching 73 miles per hour. A tropical watch remained in effect for Dominica Sunday evening, according to the NHC.
