This Is Hurricane Chris' Path and Forecast

This Is Hurricane Chris' Path and Forecast”

"This system is expected to move west-northwestward across the rest of Hispaniola today and over the southeastern Bahamas this evening", forecasters said Tuesday afternoon.

Tropical Storm Chris was upgraded to hurricane status Tuesday after it increased in speed and strength as forecasters warned that it would bring unsafe rip currents to the Jersey Shore this week.

Along the North Carolina coast, rip currents and heavy surf continue to be the main threats from this storm. The hurricane is expected to strenghten over the next two days.

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

Tropical Storm Chris continues to spin not far off the North Carolina coast and is now centered roughly 200 miles to the south-southeast of Cape Hatteras. The track is expected to stay out to sea - but may send some high surf and unsafe rip currents in our direction over the coming days.

Interests along the coast of North Carolina and in Atlantic Canada should monitor the progress of Hurricane Chris. "However, the disturbance is expected to turn northward over the western Atlantic on Wednesday where upper-level winds could become a little more conducive for the regeneration of a tropical cyclone later this week".
