Tropical Storm Chris continues to spin off North Carolina coast

Tropical Storm Chris continues to spin off North Carolina coast

The National Weather Service issued a flash-flood watch for Puerto Rico, warning of thunderstorms and wind gusts.

Weather forecasters say Tropical Storm Chris has reached hurricane strength while moving away from the USA coast in the Atlantic.

Ladbrokes spokeswoman Jessica Bridge said: "Storm Chris is a complete and utter damp squib on the gorgeous summer the United Kingdom has been having, but unfortunately the threat of it has left us with little option but to cut the odds".

The hurricane was moving toward the northeast at 10 miles per hour (17 kph), the NHC said.

The storm should start to transition into an extra-tropical but still powerful storm system later Thursday and Thursday night as it approaches the southeast coast of Newfoundland.

Chris should continue on it's northeasterly track as it picks up forward speed.

Storm swells generated by Chris will be hitting North Carolina and other mid-Atlantic states over the next few days.

The BWS said the storm was “trailing plenty of moisture, which will arrive in the area Wednesday evening and remain through Thursday morning, along with a chance of thunder”. "These swells could cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions", the center said.

A hurricane across the Atlantic may "influence" Britain's hot weather possibly bringing wind and rain next week.

Met Office spokeswoman Nicola Maxey said that tropical storm Chris "will influence the weather but we can not tell what that influence will be at the moment because it is still developing".

She added: "The weather we will be seeing after Chris is not particularly windy, but we could see rain moving in from the west".

"But towards the end of Sunday and into Monday we are likely to see more changeable weather on the way".
