Tropical Storm Chris, the third named storm of the 2006 Atlantic hurricane season, formed Tuesday morning near the Leeward Islands, according to the National Hurricane Center.

A tropical storm warning was posted for Antigua, Barbuda, Anguilla, St. Kitts, Nevis, Saba, St. Eustatius, St. Barthelemy and St. Martin. A watch was issued for Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the British Virgin Islands.

The storm's maximum sustained winds are 40 mph. Chris will likely pass over the northern Leeward Islands early Wednesday.

It could reach the Bahamas by the weekend and Florida by early next week, some forecasters said, but they cautioned that it was too soon to predict the track.
