It said: “As high pressure increases, the cold front to the north of Tropical Storm Chris will weaken, reducing wind shear and allowing the storm to intensify so that it is likely to become a hurricane at some point today.”. It became the second named hurricane of the 2018 Atlantic season, marking the earliest formation of a season's second hurricane since 2005, according to the National Hurricane Center.

As of 5 p.m. the hurricane continued to churn just over 200 miles off the coast of North Carolina and move in a northeasterly direction.

Chris was expected to remain well off the US coast, the NHC said, adding on its current forecast track, the center of Chris will be near southeastern Newfoundland on Thursday night.

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.

Government is also reminding residents to follow the latest weather forecast for alerts and warnings.

Chris is the second hurricane of the 2018 storm season and it looks like it could become even more risky.

Hurricane Chris, now a Category 1 storm, continues to churn up the surf along the Eastern seaboard. "These swells could cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions", the center said.

A southward dip in the jet stream moving into the northeastern states will help usher Chris further out to sea over the next few days.

Heavy rain of up to 100 mm in some areas could result in localized flooding, coupled with strong winds and storm surges with swells up to eight metres. "There really is no big option for the track of this storm, it's going to continue to take on that northeasterly direction, picking up speed and weakening".
