Chris Gains Strength As It Treks Toward Northeast, Nears Hurricane Status

Tropical Storm Chris is slowly moving to the Northeast as it inches closer to hurricane status with maximum sustained winds increasing to 70 mph from 60 mph on Monday.

The National Hurricane Center is warning that while Chris is not expected to directly impact land as it treks north, dangerous rip currents and rough surf will continue to impact coastal areas of the Carolinas, mid-Atlantic and the Northeast through week's end.

Chris is forecast to strengthen into a hurricane Tuesday and some additional strengthening is expected through Wednesday night. It is forecast to become a strong post-tropical cyclone by Thursday night or early Friday, when it will bring heavy rain and gusty winds to portions of Atlantic Canada.

Beachgoers in the tristate area may also notice an uptick in surf activity as the storm passes by later this week.
