The organization will then remain active through the week until the storm no longer poses a threat to the Canadian response zone, which includes both land and marine districts.

Beryl, which had been the Atlantic season's first hurricane, disintegrated as a tropical storm shortly before reaching Dominica.

But not for a day or two.

Off the U.S. East Coast, Tropical Storm Chris was centered about 180 miles (290 kilometers) south-southeast of Cape Hatteras, with maximum sustained winds of 50 mph (85 kph).

The storm probably won't bring any wind or rain, but Schroeter said a cold front moving in tomorrow will help keep temperatures low during the week.

What's the path for Chris?

On the forecast track, Chris was expected to show little movement through Tuesday, but begin heading northeast along the US coast. You can also watch her forecasts Monday through Friday on 41NBC News at Daybreak (5-7 a.m.) and 41Today (11 a.m.).

A man died in the rough surf in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina, on Saturday, when Chris was still a tropical depression.

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

"Tropical storm conditions are expected in Dominica and Guadeloupe tonight".

The hurricane center said Beryls remnant had maximum sustained winds of 40 miles per hour (65 kph) late Sunday and was moving west-northwestward at 26 miles per hour (43 kph). The hurricane center said the storm was expected to generate swells that would increase in intensity along the North Carolina and mid-Atlantic coasts.

Chris is the only named storm in the Atlantic as of Monday morning.

The storm formerly known as Beryl passed over the Lesser Antilles Sunday and entered the Caribbean as a remnant.

However, Beryl may not be over and done with.

Those traveling to North Carolina "should monitor the progress of this system", the center said.
