Rain begins on southcoast as Chris barrels towards Newfoundland

Forecast track of Tropical Storm Chris as of Tuesday moring. Via

Chris has become the second hurricane of the 2018 season, but it will continue to pull moisture away from Florida.

As of the most recent advisory from the National Hurricane Center, at 4 a.m. CDT Thursday, Tropical Storm Chris was located about 245 miles southeast of Halifax, Nova Scotia.

"Based on current forecasts we do not expect the storm to affect our offshore operations", a spokesman said in an email. It was headed northeast at 22 miles per hour, on track to brush past Canada's easternmost province and then hit Iceland this weekend.

Tropical Storm Chris, which has been lingering off the North Carolina coast for several days, has finally begun to move northward, as well as develop the qualities of a hurricane.


Although Storm Chris is expected to make its way towards the United Kingdom, there is a possibility it could miss it out completely and head towards central Europe instead. Chris should continue on it's northeasterly track as it picks up forward speed. It could strengthen to a category 1 hurricane by early Wednesday morning, but is not expected to make landfall anywhere in the U.S. "These swells could cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions", the center said. Other than some rough seas along the East Coast, it poses no threat to the US, the National Hurricane Center said.

With a storm of this type, the heaviest rains are usually felt on the western side of the system, while the strongest wind and wave activity is felt on the eastern side.

Wind warnings are in effect for the southeastern half of the Avalon Peninsula, which could see southerly wind gusts up to 100 km/h Thursday evening.
