Downgraded Chris will still bring rain, risky surf to Canada

Downgraded Chris will still bring rain, risky surf to Canada

Winds increase closer to the warm core in tropical systems while exratropical cyclones have high winds at greater distances from the storm center.

The storm, downgraded from hurricane status earlier in the day, was expected to come ashore between Cape St. Mary's and Plancentia, then track northeast across the Avalon, moving right over St. John's.

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.

This is due to the hurricane crossing the large body of water that is the Atlantic, where its energy is sucked out and it loses its strength. Beryl is not expected to track close enough to the USA coast to bring significant rain or wind, AccuWeather hurricane expert Dan Kottlowski said.

"As Chris continues to move away from Florida and the United States, it will drag our moisture away, leading to lower rain chances here", News 6 meteorologist Troy Bridges said.

The National Hurricane Centre confirmed this change in a tweet which said: "Chris is the second hurricane of the 2018 Atlantic season, after hurricane Beryl". "These swells could cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions", the center added. Rough seas and surf will continue along the coast on Friday. Sustained wind is forecast to peak around 100mph Tuesday night / Wednesday morning before some weakening back down to a strong category 1 occurs by Wednesday afternoon.

"Based on current forecasts we do not expect the storm to affect our offshore operations", a spokesman said in an email.
