The storm was sitting almost still off the SC coast on Sunday, about 160 miles south of Cape Hatteras.

The Carolinas could see their first hurricane of the season on Monday, as Tropical Storm Chris strengthens.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami said Sunday that the storm has barely moved since Saturday but was likely to strengthen in the coming days. It has been a mostly stationary storm so far, sustaining maximum wind speeds close to 45 miles per hour, but is expected to remain "well offshore" of the USA coast.

Tropical Storm Chris continues to spin just off the North Carolina coast and is now centered roughly 150 miles to the south of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina. It said Beryl will have maximum sustained winds of 45 miles per hour and occasional higher gusts. Meteorologists said the swells can result in life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.

What's left off Beryl is racing towards the island of Dominica and will produce heavy rains and tropical storm force winds to the island as a Tropical Storm Watch remains up for the island.

"Based on the current track by the National Hurricane Center, it looks to be tracking well southeast of Nantucket", Buttrick said.

No coastal watches or warnings are in effect, but forecasters say swells along the coasts of North Carolina and the mid-Atlantic states could produce unsafe surf and rip current conditions. "Tropical storm conditions are possible in the watch areas of the Lesser Antilles by later today or Monday", forecasters said, "Strong gusty winds are also possible in the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico on Monday".

The storm was expected to move toward the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico, or just south of those areas, on Monday.

Tropical Storm Beryl is moving rapidly westward toward the Lesser Antilles at the eastern entrance of the Caribbean Sea.
