Forecasters expect Tropical Storm Chris to gain strength as it hovers off the Carolina coast Monday.

Forecasters expect it will gain hurricane strength later on Monday before moving up Gulfstream waters on a path that won't take it near the US mainland but could cause life-threatening surf on East Coast beaches this week. It has the potential to reach hurricane status sometime Tuesday when it's expected to start moving in a northeast direction.

Meanwhile, a tropical depression formed in the Atlantic well off the North Carolina coast, but forecasters said there were no coastal watches or warnings in effect.

The remnant of Tropical Storm Beryl has rushed over Dominica but then dissipated, lessening the threat to Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, which had braced for heavy rains and strong winds less than a year after being battered by hurricanes.

Information from the Associated Press was used in this report.

A flash-flood watch remained in effect for Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands from late Sunday through Monday evening, NWS San Juan said on Twitter.

There is a moderate risk of rip currents for most of the local beaches, except for Cramer Park beach in Saint Croix, with a high risk of rip currents, the weather service said.

Beryl disintegrated as a tropical storm shortly before crossing over Dominica, which is still rebuilding more than nine months after Hurricane Maria killed dozens of people.

The governor urged people without sturdy roofs to move to one of the 424 shelters that the government planned to open across the island. "They're the ones who are suffering the most now".

"Lugo lost his roof and two walls to Maria, and was waiting on Sunday for volunteers to secure his new roof before Beryl arrives". Those living near Puerto Rico's south coast, the first region hit by Maria, were wary of the new storm even if it was no longer a hurricane. The remnants are moving west-northwestward near 26 miles per hour (43 km/h), and this general motion should continue through Monday.

Forecasters said conditions somewhat conducive for regeneration of a tropical cyclone are expected as Beryl is forecast to move across the Bahamas and the western Atlantic.

Environment Canada said the storm could approach the province by Thursday but Abraham doesn't think it can maintain a hurricane status over our cooler water this time of year. The winds extend at least 60 miles from the eye of the storm.
