Tropical Storm Chris continues to spin off North Carolina coast

Tropical Storm Chris continues to spin off North Carolina coast

No coastal watches or warnings were in effect.

Tropical Storm Chris strengthened in the mid-Atlantic and was expected to become a hurricane on Monday evening or Tuesday, while the former Hurricane Beryl dwindled into a heavy rainstorm threatening to bring flooding to Puerto Rico, forecasters said.

The storm was almost stationary early on Tuesday as it churned about 200 miles (322 km) south-southeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina with maximum sustained winds of 70 miles per hour (110 km/h), the Miami-based weather forecaster said.

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Chris became Hurricane Chris with maximum sustained winds of 85 miles per hour, the hurricane center said in its 5 p.m. advisory. High surf and risky rip currents are expected to spread from the North Carolina coast to New England for several days.

As of 5 p.m. EDT (2100 GMT), the storm was about 215 miles (350 km) south-southeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina.


Interests along the coast of North Carolina and in Atlantic Canada should monitor the progress of Hurricane Chris.

There is still "uncertainty" about the possible track it will take and it would be an ex-hurricane by the weekend when it may hit the UK.

Yorkshire is now expected to see wet weather and showers over the next few days, including heavy showers on Thursday, whilst the Lake District and surrounding areas could see thunderstorms.

However, this doesn't mean that the weather conditions in the United Kingdom won't be impacted by Storm Chris, as wet and windy weather conditions are now expected.
