Former Tropical Storm Chris dissipates over Mexico, remnants continue to bring rain: NHC

Former Tropical Storm Chris dissipated over eastern Mexico on Monday, according to the National Hurricane Center. The short-lived storm formed late Sunday night in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico and made landfall in Mexico less than two hours later.

Chris moved ashore about 11:50 p.m. CT in Mexico's Veracruz state near Lechuguillas, about 85 miles southeast of Tuxpan, the NHC said. It had maximum sustained winds of 40 mph.

Chris became the third named storm of the 2024 Atlantic hurricane season. It enters the scene as meteorologists continue to monitor the "extremely dangerous" Category 3 Hurricane Beryl and Invest 96L, which is following close behind.
