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.
"Movement was northeast at 2 miles per hour, with a central pressure of 993 millibars or 29.33" of mercury.
Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 40 miles (65 kilometers) from the center, and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 175 miles (280 kilometers). Chris will continue to gain speed and reach the Canadian province of Newfoundland late Thursday and will pass near Iceland this weekend.
IMPACTS FROM CHRISWhile Chris won't bring us any direct impacts, swells generated by the storm will affect coastal portions of the Carolinas and the mid-Atlantic states for a few more days. Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 105 miles per hour, and it will likely continue to strengthen through Wednesday morning.
