Category 1 Hurricane Chris Moves Northeastward

The storm, however, may produce risky surf conditions, including a high rip along the coast of North Carolina and the mid-Atlantic states in the next few days and potentially creating life-threatening conditions, the NHC said in an advisory.

So in the satellite above, the hole in the middle of the clouds is the center of Tropical Storm Chris, which is about to become a hurricane.

Hurricane Chris was located about 205 miles east-southeast of Cape Hatteras, N.C., moving to the northeast at 10 mph.

"Tropical storm Chris is predicted to become a hurricane and move north over the next few days". Local officials were advised to monitor the storm's movement.

Locally heavy rains and gusty winds were likely to continue from eastern Cuba and Hispaniola northward across the eastern Bahamas for the next day or two.

"A continued northeastward motion accompanied by a steady increase in forward speed is expected through Thursday night.", forecasters said. A Rip Current Statement was issued for the Outer Banks.

Meteorologist Aidan McGivern, speaking in a Met Office Facebook post, said: "Developments on the other side of the pond could very well disrupt weather patterns in the vicinity of the UK".

There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.

Chris will begin a northeastern course from late Tuesday off the U.S. Atlantic coast, the center said, adding that projections showed it possibly making landfall in the Canadian province of Nova Scotia late on Wednesday or early on Thursday.
