It took it a few days, but Tropical Storm Chris strengthened into a hurricane Tuesday as it started to move away from the US coast. Looks like another storm right next to Tropical Storm Chris, but it won't ever get named and here's why. It added that an Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft is scheduled to investigate the tropical wave on Wednesday, if needed.
"This system is expected to move west-northwestward across the rest of Hispaniola today and over the southeastern Bahamas this evening", forecasters said Tuesday afternoon.
Yorkshire is now expected to see wet weather and showers over the next few days, including heavy showers on Thursday, whilst the Lake District and surrounding areas could see thunderstorms.
Chris is forecast to gather strength through Wednesday, but should start weakening by Thursday and revert back to a tropical storm by Friday, according to the NHC.
"One projection showing low pressure just to the west of the United Kingdom is bringing wind and rain, but on another Chris is barely there".
Winds are still at 70 miles per hour, making it a strong tropical storm approaching hurricane strength.
The storm was expected to remain well off the US coast, and latest projections show it is forecast to pass well southeast of the Canadian province of Nova Scotia in a couple of days, then move near or over southeastern Newfoundland by Friday, the hurricane center said.
Little development was expected Tuesday night due to unfavorable upper-level winds.
