Tropical Outlook:

Tropical Storm Chris is approximately 200 miles SSE of Cape Hatteras with maximum sustained winds of 60 mph. Chris is expected to remain nearly stationary during the next day due to weak steering currents. During this time remaining stationary in the warm ocean waters, intensification to hurricane status is anticipated later today or tonight. A northeastward motion is forecast to begin late Tuesday with acceleration anticipated Wednesday and Thursday taking Chris out to sea, minimally affecting North Carolina. The primary threats with Chris are dangerous swells, which are expected to increase over the coming days. These swells could cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions. With rough surf and increased swells, some ocean over-wash and beach erosion is likely. The extreme outer bands of Chris are expected to periodically affect the Outer Banks later today through Tuesday morning. Brisk winds and mostly cloudy skies with scattered showers will persist along the coast Tuesday, but inland skies should clear with light winds expected.

 

Weather Outlook:

A dry start to the week is expected elsewhere before the deep-layer trough taking Chris out to sea brings the next chance of rain and thunderstorms back to NC Wednesday and Thursday. A slow moving, weak cold front is forecast to reach the NC/VA border by Wednesday morning reaching the NC/SC border by Thursday morning. Thunderstorms are possible Wednesday afternoon through Thursday in association with the frontal passage. Temperatures will begin climbing back into the 90s towards the end of the work week. A mostly dry, but warm weekend is anticipated this coming weekend.
