The third named storm of the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season is expected to strengthen into a hurricane by Tuesday, staying away from the USA but still close enough to churn up unsafe waters for beachgoers, forecasters said Monday.

Wind, waves and visibility can quickly become problematic for boaters, while the increased sea states leading up to and after a tropical storm can create powerful rip currents, according to a release from the Coast Guard.

Despite the storms, Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello told the AP that all ports remained open, and only one cruise ship canceled a visit because of the weather. "The system can still cause a lot of damage regardless of whether it's a tropical storm or a hurricane".

“Tropical Storm Chris will meander to our west then eject northeastward on Wednesday and pass to our distant north dragging a trailing cold front and showers mainly early Thursday.”.

"Tropical Storm Watch means that tropical storm conditions are possible within the watch area", the hurricane center said.

Off the U.S. East Coast, Tropical Storm Chris has maximum sustained winds of 60 miles per hour (95 kph).

Tropical storm Chris is expected to intensify to hurricane status Monday but it's still uncertain the degree of impact it will have on Nova Scotia.

Beryl has weakened significantly as it moves across the Eastern Caribbean under the watchful eyes and cautious preparations of officials from several islands. More than 1,500 power customers remain in the dark more than nine months after Maria, and some 60,000 people still have only tarps for roofs.

"So it is critically important that we keep an eye on friends, family and neighbours who may be at risk. It is not the moment to panic, but it's the moment to prepare".

In its 11 a.m. advisory, the National Hurricane Center in Miami said Beryl was located about 210 miles east of Martinique and 235 miles east-southeast of Dominica.
