Video Carlisle Jno Baptiste

Tropical Storm Chris is expected to strengthen and remain off the Carolinas' coast Sunday as Beryl weakened to remnants of a storm, according to the National Hurricane Center.

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.

The storm is, however, forecast to maintain this strength as it heads west over the next day, prompting tropical storm warnings for Dominica and Guadeloupe, where gusty winds and one to three inches of rain are possible. By midweek, Chris may intensify into a hurricane as it continues to become better organized.

Tropical Storm Chris could become hurricane
According to the 5:00 a.m. advisory, the center of Tropical Storm Beryl was located near latitude 13.7 North, longitude 56.0 West. High surf and unsafe rip currents are expected along parts of the Carolina and mid-Atlantic coasts through early week.

Chris has barely moved since Saturday and is not expected to make any significant movement for the next few days.

However, the storm's path is expected to stay away from the New England shore.

As of 11:00 p.m. Sunday, the remnants of Beryl were located near latitude 15.8 North, longitude 62.4 West, N.H.C. said. These swells could cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions up and down our coast. 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 USA coast. It was seen staying well off the US coast.

European peace activists march against Trump's NATO visit
He is due to arrive in Helsinki the evening of July 15 for meetings the next morning with Finnish President Sauli Niinisto. Other than with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, Trump has no other bilateral meetings now scheduled.

Chris may eventually impact parts of Nova Scotia and Newfoundland while transitioning into a strong non-tropical area of low pressure late in the week.

Maximum sustained winds are near 40 miles per hour (65 km/h) with higher gusts.

Intermittent rainstorms already were hitting Dominica early Sunday, and the U.S. National Hurricane Center said 2 to 3 inches (5 to 7.5 centimeters) of rain could fall as the storm moves through or near the island on Sunday night.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp hails new talent Naby Keita and Fabinho
