The storm was almost stationary early on Tuesday as it churned about 200 miles (322 km) south-southeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina with maximum sustained winds of 70 miles per hour (110 km/h), the Miami-based weather forecaster said.

After days of dry, hot weather with heightened fire hazard ratings and some heat warnings in effect, parts of Newfoundland are expecting heavy rain and high winds from the remains of Hurricane Chris as it downgrades to a tropical storm.

And rough seas churned up by Chris will continue to affect the East Coast of the United States from North Carolina northward into New England, the hurricane center said. Total rain accumulations over Newfoundland are forecast to be from 1 to 3 inches (25 to 75 millimeters), with isolated amounts in the neighborhood of 6 inches (150 millimeters). Heavy rain in Southwest There was record rainfall across the Southwest on Monday. Yesterday, 141 rescues were performed in Ocean City, Maryland, due to rough surf and unsafe rip currents.

Winds increase closer to the warm core in tropical systems while exratropical cyclones have high winds at greater distances from the storm center.

"Significant wave heights could reach near 10 metres over offshore waters near the track of Chris as it moves through the Canadian marine district", added CHC. So be aware of the possibility of flash flooding. Little change in strength is expected during the day today, with some weakening forecast on Thursday, July 12.

Chris is now moving to the northeast at 10 miles per hour away from the East Coast and will accelerate through tonight and tomorrow. Hurricane Chris is unlikely to strike land, though NHC forecasters say it will become a "powerful extratropical cyclone" on its way to Newfoundland, bringing unsafe conditions all the same. The hurricane quickly picked up speed, though, and the National Hurricane Center (NHC) upgraded it to a Category 2 hurricane in an advisory shortly before midnight.
