This Is Hurricane Chris' Path and Forecast

Tropical Storm Chris was expected to become a hurricane on Tuesday and create unsafe swells along the coast of North Carolina and mid-Atlantic states, the National Hurricane Center said. Toward the weekend, it may hit Newfoundland as a tropical storm. It added that an Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft is scheduled to investigate the tropical wave on Wednesday, if needed.

Chris is starting to move northeast around 9 miles per hour.

Nicola Maxey, Senior Press Officer for the Met Office, explains that this sort of weather activity is typical for this time of year and that although the Storm is expected to turn into a hurricane by later today, by the time it reaches the United Kingdom it will be an ex-hurricane.

These two have looked the best two teams in the tournament. "But he is someone I really appreciate, I'm happy for him". Arsenal legend Henry enjoyed a glittering worldwide career, winning the 1998 World Cup and 2000 European Championship.


The swells generated from Hurricane Chris are expected to cause "life-threatening" current conditions, the NHC says, and beachgoers and boaters on the coast of North Carolina and the mid-Atlantic states are advised to avoid the waters if possible.

By late week, Chris will bring heavy rain and gusty winds to portions of Atlantic Canada.

The storm was expected to track south of Nova Scotia at hurricane strength on Thursday, but Hubbard said it was too early to determine if wind or rainfall warnings would be required for Nova Scotia or southeastern Newfoundland, where a Friday arrival is in the forecast. It's expected to remain "well offshore" of the USA coast, forecasters say, instead steadily heading for Newfoundland while picking up forward speed through Thursday night.
