Weather forecasters say Tropical Storm Chris is likely to strengthen to a hurricane by Monday but will remain well away from the US coast for the next two or three days.

Environment Canada has issued a statement for Nova Scotia and parts of P.E.I. and New Brunswick, saying they could be in the path of a tropical storm that formed off the US coast Sunday morning.

The province is looking at some rocky weather later this week as tropical storm Chris makes it way from the Eastern United States. "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 storm's remnants crossed directly over the island with top sustained winds of 40 miles per hour (65 kph), and was expected to drop up to 3 inches (8 centimeters) of rain, with as much as 5 inches (13 centimeters) in isolated spots. It could pass near or over Nova Scotia and Newfoundland later this week, but is expected to be weaker then.

Radar from the National Weather Service in Newport/Morehead City, N.C., showed thin bands of rain from Chris just offshore of Cape Hatteras on Monday morning.

A number of beaches along the Outer Banks on Sunday are not open for swimmers.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 45 miles from the center.

A Tropical storm watch is in effect for Dominica while watches for Martinique, St. Martin, St. Barthelemy, Saba, St. Eustatius and St. Maarten, were discontinued. There weren't any coastal watches or warnings as of early Monday.

"Swells generated by Chris are expected to increase and affect portions of the coasts of North Carolina and the mid-Atlantic states into early next week", the NHC says.

However, Beryl may not be over and done with.
