  • Tropical Storm Chris

The latest forecast from the U.S. National Hurricane Center said, "At 500 PM EDT, the center of Tropical Storm Chris was located by an Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft to be near latitude 32.2 North, longitude 74.4 West".

As of Monday morning, Abraham said both the Canadian Hurricane Centre in Dartmouth and the U.S. National Hurricane Centre in Miami say Chris is on track to pass south of Nova Scotia.

A flash flood watch will be in effect for Monday.

No coastal watches or warnings were in place for Chris as of Sunday. A dip in the jet stream will reportedly help move the storm out to sea. There is also the potential that Beryl could produce total rainfall accumulations of two to three inches across portions of the Leeward and Virgin Islands, as well as Puerto Rico.

Tropical storms are fueled by warm ocean surface waters.

- Gov. Roy Cooper and other state officials are cautioning vacationers and residents on the coast to monitor Tropical Storm Chris, which could be upgraded to a hurricane on Monday.
