The storm will generate risky surf conditions and life-threatening rip currents along the North Carolina and mid-Atlantic coasts the next few days as it continues to speed away from the US, forecasters said.

Chris was moving toward the northeast near 22 miles per hour (35 kph).

"It's the remnants of the hurricane out in the Atlantic at the moment, just off the east coast of the USA".

The storm was expected to strengthen through Wednesday and then lose force from Thursday on, the center said.

Storm Chris is set to hit the United Kingdom with gales, cooler temperatures and damper weather, threatening to end Britain's heatwave.




Interests along the coast of North Carolina and in Atlantic Canada should monitor the progress of Hurricane Chris. The storm will be between a trough digging southeast in the eastern USA and a ridge of high pressure to its south. "These swells could cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions", the center said.

Latest path appreciation models from the NHC show Storm Chris will brush past northern Ireland and northern Scotland during Saturday and Sunday.

Southern coastlines of that region can also expect storm surges.

Chris is located about 245 miles southeast of Halifax, Nova Scotia, and about 470 miles southwest of Cape Race, Newfoundland. Little change in strength is expected during the day today, with some weakening forecast on Thursday, July 12.

As of Thursday evening the Canadian Hurricane Centre maintained a tropical cyclone information statement for eastern Newfoundland including, Bonavista, Burin and Avalon peninsulas.
