NHC says Chris strengthens into a Category 2 hurricane

NHC says Chris strengthens into a Category 2 hurricane

The national weather forecaster says the storm is now off the coast of Carolina and is expected to begin moving northeast later today. Looks like another storm right next to Tropical Storm Chris, but it won't ever get named and here's why.

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

Hurricane Chris formed today from what was Tropical Storm Chris.

The National Weather Service issued a flash-flood watch for Puerto Rico, warning of thunderstorms and wind gusts. Even if it doesn't strengthen back into a tropical storm, forecasters said winds and rain could be expected in Hispaniola and the Bahamas.

Chris, which formed off the North Carolina coast early on Sunday, was packing maximum sustained winds near 70 miles per hour (110 kph) on Monday afternoon, causing swells that will batter the coasts of the Carolinas for the next few days, the National Hurricane Center said.

Chris is forecast to begin weakening Wednesday night, and the system is expected to become a strong post-tropical cyclone by Thursday night, the Florida-based weather forecaster said.

North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper warned beachgoers on Monday to beware of risky rip currents after an unidentified man in his mid-60s drowned in rough surf just north of Nags Head when he was caught in a rough surf current caused by the storm.

However, this doesn't mean that the weather conditions in the United Kingdom won't be impacted by Storm Chris, as wet and windy weather conditions are now expected.
