The National Weather Service is reporting the tropical storm could turn into a hurricane as it moves northeast Monday night and picks up speed. The hurricane will cause 'rough seas and rip currents' along the coast of the Carolinas and mid-Atlantic Beaches through Tuesday and Wednesday. The projected path should take it northeast, keeping it offshore, but it will most likely remain stationary through Tuesday.

The Hurricane Center says ex-Beryl has a 40 percent chance to become a tropical depression or storm again over the next five days.
