Tropical Storm Chris

The storm is now 200 miles south southeast of Cape Hatteras with maximum sustained winds of 60 mph.

As of Monday morning, Abraham said both the Canadian Hurricane Centre in Dartmouth and the U.S. National Hurricane Centre in Miami say Chris is on track to pass south of Nova Scotia.

The storm had maximum sustained winds of about 60 miles per hour Monday morning with stronger gusts but was expected to get stronger tonight.

Forecasters expect Tropical Storm Chris to gain strength as it hovers off the Carolina coast Monday. The remnants are moving west-northwestward near 26 miles per hour (43 km/h), and this general motion should continue through Monday.

A second wildfire is also burning to the northwest of the County Fire . "This fire is absolutely, extremely fast-moving", he said. Heavy smoke can be seen across the Bay Area, as far west as Petaluma and as far south as San Francisco and Redwood City.

Beryl, which had weakened to a tropical storm from a hurricane on Saturday, degenerated on Sunday into an open wave, according to the NHC.

"Other than some impacts at the beaches, there are no direct impacts expected for the MYR and Grand Strand areas if Chris does become a hurricane", said Steve Pfaff with the Wilmington National Weather Service. It is expected to move northeast on Wednesday and Thursday. A dip in the jet stream will reportedly help move the storm out to sea.

The hurricane center said there was a possibility that Beryls remnants could regenerate into a tropical cyclone in a few days while moving across the Bahamas.
