WILMINGTON — Hurricane Chris has officially formed in the Atlantic after lingering off the North Carolina coast as a tropical storm for several days. As Hurricane Chris continues to move north, remnants of the former Hurricane Beryl may reform as a storm system following in Chris’ path.

According to the National Hurricane Center’s latest tropical weather outlook, “A large area of cloudiness and disorganized thunderstorms associated with the remnants of Beryl is located over much of the Bahamas and extends northwestward over the western Atlantic for a few hundred miles. Little or no development is expected today, but conditions could become a little more favorable later in the week while the disturbance moves slowly northward over the western Atlantic.”

As for Hurricane Chris, early this morning it was located about 300 miles east of Cape Hatteras, moving into the open Atlantic.

“Chris has increased its forward speed and is now moving toward the northeast near 22 mph (35 km/h). This general motion with additional increase in forward speed is anticipated during the next 2 to 3 days. Maximum sustained winds remain near 105 mph (165 km/h) with higher gusts. Chris has the opportunity to strengthen a little today or tonight.  After that time, the hurricane is forecast to weaken and become a strong post-tropical cyclone by Thursday night or earlier,” according to the NHC.

The storms are expected to remain off the coast, but swells generated by Chris are expected to affect Coastal North Carolina, as well as the mid-Atlantic states producing strong rip currents.
