NHC says Chris strengthens into a Category 2 hurricane

NHC says Chris strengthens into a Category 2 hurricane

Tropical Storm Chris is now tracking the East Coast of the USA and is set to cross the Atlantic to the UK.

She said that ex-hurricanes like Chris happen regularly.

She said a "blip" in the current hot weather, which is not down to Chris, is seeing temperatures in the south east drop to around 23-25C (73-77F) and further north to 21-22C (69-71F) in Birmingham or 17-18C (62-64F) in Newcastle but temperatures "will increase a few degrees to the weekend".

She said: "It looks likely that its energy will end up in our jet stream, but the forecast computer models can not yet decide if that will kick the jet stream our way and ruin the start to the school holidays or stall the jet stream to the west and bring renewed heat for the rest of July".

Chris is starting to move northeast around 9 miles per hour.

"But towards the end of Sunday and into Monday we are likely to see more changeable weather on the way".

Yankees' Cashman, Arizona Cardinals owner back Trump's Supreme Court pick
The latest political battlegound in the US Senate is soon set to become Donald Trump's choice for Supreme Court judge. The organization wants someone who will "interpret the law as written and not legislate from the bench", Riggs added.

A Met Office spokesperson said: "A cloudy start for many, but it will brighten up during the morning with plenty of warm sunshine in the afternoon".

This graphic from the National Hurricane Center (NHC) shows the projected path of Hurricane Chris on Tuesday, July 10, 2018.

By late week, Chris will bring heavy rain and gusty winds to portions of Atlantic Canada. This will help speed up the storm to the northeast while staying over Atlantic waters.

Bookmakers Ladbrokes has been taking bets on wet weather records being broken as Storm Chris bears own on the UK.

Although Storm Chris is expected to make its way towards the United Kingdom, there is a possibility it could miss it out completely and head towards central Europe instead.
