This Is Hurricane Chris' Path and Forecast

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. Looks like another storm right next to Tropical Storm Chris, but it won't ever get named and here's why.

Meteorologist Aidan McGivern, speaking in a Met Office Facebook post, said: "Developments on the other side of the pond could very well disrupt weather patterns in the vicinity of the UK".

Chris, which formed off the North Carolina coast early on Sunday, was packing maximum sustained winds near 70 miles per hour (110 kph) on Monday afternoon, causing swells that will batter the coasts of the Carolinas for the next few days, the National Hurricane Center said.

"(By the weekend) Chris is likely to join the jet stream and its remnants are likely to be carried towards the UK.

Meanwhile, Beryl's tropical wave is bringing gusty wind and some heavy rain to Hispaniola and the Tucks and Caicos.

Beryl is mostly an open tropical wave with no closed low-level center of circulation.

Average summer temperatures are 19C (66F) but across the United Kingdom we have seen 10C above that, according to Ms Maxey.

Hubbard said the storm's track amounted to good news for people in Nova Scotia, but some eastern areas of the province could still expect some rain. Hurricane Chris is unlikely to strike land, though NHC forecasters say it will become a "powerful extratropical cyclone" on its way to Newfoundland, bringing risky conditions all the same.
