Tropical Storm Chris could become hurricane
Weather forecasters say Tropical Storm Chris is likely to strengthen to a hurricane by Monday but will remain well away from the U.S. coast for the next two or three days.
The National Hurricane Center in Miami said Sunday that the storm has barely moved since Saturday. At 11 a.m. EDT, the storm's center was located about 160 miles (260 kilometers) south of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina. Maximum sustained winds have reached 45 mph (75 kph).
No coastal watches or warnings are in effect, but forecasters say swells along the coasts of North Carolina and the mid-Atlantic states could produce dangerous surf and rip current conditions.
