No surprises with Tropical Storm Chris

What's left of Tropical Storm Beryl has a 50 percent chance of redeveloping into a tropical depression over the next few days as it moves into the Bahamas

Weather forecasters say Tropical Storm Chris has reached hurricane strength while moving away from the US coast in the Atlantic.

Chris is starting to move northeast around 9 miles per hour.

North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper warned beachgoers on Monday to beware of risky rip currents after an unidentified man in his mid-60s drowned just north of Nags Head when he was caught in a rough surf current caused by the storm.

With maximum sustained winds of 70 mph, Chris is about 200 miles south-southeast of Cape Hatteras, N.C., according to the 5 a.m. advisory from the National Hurricane Center.

The National Weather Service issued a flash-flood watch for Puerto Rico, warning of thunderstorms and wind gusts.

It was expected to gain strength Tuesday and Wednesday before weakening Thursday. The system is expected to move over the southeastern Bahamas later Tuesday but should not develop much over the next day or so, the hurricane center predicted.

The storm is tracking out to sea and is not expected to make landfall anywhere in the United States. These swells could cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions. Interests in Atlantic Canada, including Nova Scotia and Newfoundland, should monitor the progress of Chris for potential direct impacts later next week.
