Hurricane Chris sending risky surf ashore along East Coast

Share

Looks like another storm right next to Tropical Storm Chris, but it won't ever get named and here's why. The report is available in Spanish at: Centro de Operaciones de Emergencias.

In the United States, forecasters said Wednesday that beachgoers on the Atlantic coast should be wary of heavy surf and life-threatening rip-currents as Chris swirled off the U.S. East Coast.

An Air Force Reserve Reconnaissance aircraft is scheduled to fly over Chris Tuesday afternoon. Maximum sustained winds are near 100 miles per hour (155 kph) with higher gusts.

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

The storm became a hurricane Tuesday as it moved further away from the coast of the Carolinas.

Ms Thornton said the fate of the weather depends on the position of the jet stream - the winds blowing from west to east in the upper atmosphere.

Chris is located about 245 miles southeast of Halifax, Nova Scotia, and about 470 miles southwest of Cape Race, Newfoundland.

Chris will make for an angry ocean with high waves, pounding surf and storm surge a concern for southern parts of the island tonight, particularly during high tide.

What is left of Tropical Storm Chris continues to speed away from the east coast of the USA while we keep an eye on the Caribbean. There is a 20% chance for the system to become a tropical depression within two days and only a 30% chance for it to do so in five days.

Warm seas could add to Chriss strength today, according to the National Hurricane Centre, but the storm is predicted to weaken tomorrow, becoming a post-tropical cyclone.
