  • The Maritimes could be in the path of a tropical storm Chris

Hurricane Chris, now off the east coast of the United States of America, is heading out into the Atlantic, and over the next couple of days will become part of our weather patterns.

Wednesday's 11 a.m. advisory from the National Hurricane Center shows Chris sustaining 100 miles per hour winds, only 5 miles per hour slower than early Wednesday morning.

Surf: swells generated by Hurricane Chris are expected to increase and affect portions of the coasts of North Carolina and the mid-Atlantic states during the next few days.

The US National Hurricane Centre yesterday said the Chris was headed towards the northeast at about 2mph, with the storm forecast to pick up speed. It was headed northeast at 22 miles per hour, on track to hit Canada's easternmost province this weekend.

She told Daily Star Online: "Former Atlantic hurricanes can have a huge impact on the UK's weather, but it can be both positive and negative".


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. "The colder waters have likely stabilized the boundary layer, which has inhibited stronger winds aloft from mixing down to the surface", according to the National Hurricane Center (NHC). The hurricane center gives the storm a 50 percent chance of regenerating into a tropical depression or storm within the next five days.

At 6am, Chris was 530 miles west of Bermuda, with winds of about 70mph and higher gusts.

Regardless of Storm Chris, temperatures are expected to remain in the high 20Cs throughout the rest of this week after a record-breaking start to July.

There were no coastal watches or warnings in effect.

The Weather Channel said Chris caused a short-lived cooler change in sea-surface temperatures off the southeast coast, where temperatures had been warmer than average up to this point.
