Beryl has dissipated and is now an open tropical wave. The remnants of Beryl will bring some rain and gusty winds to portions of the Lesser Antilles tonight. Meanwhile, TS Chris located off the coast of North Carolina is forecasted to meander offshore and strengthen to a hurricane before moving away from the United States coastline mid week. Later this week, portions of Southeast Canada may receive some impacts from Chris as it weakens.

Tropical Depression Three has developed off the North Carolina coast and is forecasted to become Tropical Storm Chris this weekend, and possibly further intensify into the second hurricane of the season by mid-next week as it begins to move away from the Mid-Atlantic coast. TD 3 will meander off the southeast coast through early next week as steering currents are currently weak. Interests along the coast of North Carolina should monitor the progress of this system.
