Hurricane Chris forms; not expected to make USA landfall

Hurricane Chris forms; not expected to make USA landfall

The second hurricane of the 2018 season has quickly strengthened into a Category 2 storm that is moving away from the USA but making a bee-line toward Canada and, eventually, Iceland.

Forecasters from the National Weather Service said they expected Chris to create a moderate, or elevated, risk of unsafe rip currents forming along the entire Jersey Shore on Wednesday, from Sandy Hook down to Cape May.

Although the ghost of Beryl will be near the east coast of Florida, it is not expected to affect the state, according to forecasters.

No coastal watches or warnings were in effect.

"Sometimes there are no systems steering other systems around an advancing tropical storm or hurricane and that allows it to wobble a little bit and that can change the expected track", explained SaltWire Network meteorologist Cindy Day July 10.

Although there are now no coastal watches or warnings in effect, weather officials warned that Hurricane Chris could potentially produce heavy surf and create life-threatening rip-currents along the East Coast in the coming days. This means rough surf and risky rip currents. But if you do venture in the water, be sure to do so only under the supervision of a lifeguard. Never try to swim against a rip current as you will tire quickly.

Wednesday we will see an increase of moisture as Chris pushes out into the Atlantic. By tonight, Chris will finally begin to move northeast - parallel to the Eastern seaboard.

As for the tropics, Chris strengthened into a hurricane Tuesday evening, but still poses NO threat to the USA coastline and will move northeast and out to sea in the coming days. "The hurricane center is now giving Beryl a 20 percent chance of development within the next two days and a 50 percent chance over the next five days".
