Tropical Storm Chris continues to spin not far off the North Carolina coast and is now centered roughly 200 miles to the south-southeast of Cape Hatteras.
Chris is starting to move northeast around 9 miles per hour.
Hurricane Chris formed off the U.S. East Coast Tuesday afternoon. The center said people along the coast should continue to monitor the hurricane. By later this week, Chris may bring gusty winds and heavy rain to portions of Atlantic Canada.
While it is expected to mostly miss the United States, the storm has already created unsafe conditions, and beach patrol officials in Ocean City, Maryland had already made 141 rescues as of Monday due to strong rip currents.
So in the satellite above, the hole in the middle of the clouds is the center of Tropical Storm Chris, which is about to become a hurricane.
It has seen a handful of hurricanes and tropical storms make landfall within the last couple of decades. Chris is moving to the northeast at 29 miles per hour (46 kph) with maximum sustained winds of 85 miles per hour (140 kph). Its center will be near southeastern Newfoundland Thursday night.
However, this doesn't mean that the weather conditions in the United Kingdom won't be impacted by Storm Chris, as wet and windy weather conditions are now expected.
The area could be hit by heavy rain, strong winds and waves with storm surge along parts of the coast, the centre said.
Chris is expected to be a post-tropical storm by the time it arrives Thursday, slowly weakening as it moves toward the Avalon Peninsula.
