A third named Atlantic storm that formed off the North Carolina coast early on Sunday was forecast to become a hurricane on Monday, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said, while Tropical Storm Beryl looked set to threaten Puerto Rico.
Now, it's moving west-northwest at 23 mph with 45 mph sustained winds that extend 45 miles from the storm's center, still described as "disorganized". Martinique, St. Martin, and St. Barthelemy; Saba and St. Eustatius; and St. Maarten remain on a tropical storm watch.
The storm was expected to move toward the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico, or just south of those areas, on Monday.
The tropical storm, now building near the Carolinas, is expected to strengthen into a hurricane Monday and will most likely remain offshore for two to three days, forecasters said.

The Bank of Canada will most likely raise rates to 1.50 percent, according to 19 of 25 economists surveyed by Reuters July 4-6. The data underscored the continued importance of the USA market, which took in 74.2% of all Canadian goods exports in May.
It is said Beryl will "degenerate into a trough of low pressure" as it moves into the eastern caribbean sea by Monday.
Chris formed off the coast of North Carolina on Friday and is now about 160 miles off the coast of Cape Hatteras.
The same amount, two to three inches, was also expected to fall on the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico, with up to five inches possible in some areas, through Tuesday.
"On this present position and the latest available forecast track Tropical Storm Beryl no longer poses a direct threat to Barbados".
