Tropical Storm Beryl takes aim at eastern Caribbean

New predictions for hurricanes, storms in the Caribbean this season

The Caribbean should see fewer storms, and the chance of a major hurricane hitting the region is significantly less than it was when the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season began.

"Some strengthening is forecast during the next couple of days, and Beryl could still be a hurricane when it reaches the Lesser Antilles late Sunday or Monday", the agency said.

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Chris formed off the Carolinas, and the USA hurricane centre said it was likely to grow into a hurricane while heading to the northeast, roughly parallel to the coast.

Tropical Storm Chris is expected to become a hurricane on Tuesday and is forecast to accelerate northeastward on Wednesday and Thursday.

According to Meteorologist Grant Gilmore, intensity forecast models show a large range of possibilities - from Beryl remaining a tropical storm to it potentially becoming a hurricane.

The next hurricane advisory is scheduled for 5 p.m. Sunday.

Federer walks out at Wimbledon in Uniqlo shirt, not Nike
Roger Federer made light work of Dusan Lajovic as he began his quest for a ninth Wimbledon title with a 6-1 6-3 6-4 victory. The tennis star donned the Japanese brand at his Wimbledon match on Monday, but for now has kept his Nike shoes.

Though the storm is far from the strength of major Hurricanes Maria and Irma a year ago, Beryl still poses a threat of wind and rain to areas that have not fully recovered from those destructive storms.

In April, meteorologists from Colorado State University predicted an active hurricane season, with an estimated seven hurricanes projected to form.

Tropical storm warnings remain for Dominica and Guadeloupe.

As it still moves over warmer waters, Chris will likely reach Category 1 hurricane strength with maximum winds upwards of 75 miles per hour. It wasn't projected to directly threaten land over the next few days, though forecasters said it could kick up unsafe swells. It is located about 240 miles east of Barbados and is moving west-northwest at 20 mph. Rossello, who said the island could experience power outages, urged people without sturdy roofs to move in with relatives or a government shelter.

"As is the case with all hurricane seasons, coastal residents are reminded that it only takes one hurricane making landfall to make it an active season for them". It was centred 60 miles (95 kilometres) east of Martinique and was zipping west-northwestward at 26 mph (43 kph).

"Swells generated by Chris are expected to increase and affect portions of the coasts of North Carolina and the mid-Atlantic states during the next few days", the NHC said.
