Tropical Storm Chris, located off the coast of the Carolina’s, is expected to remain relatively stationary over the next several days. Chris will likely intensify in the warm Atlantic waters during its brief stay along the east coast. This one appears to show little to no threat to the United States as it is forecast to move northeast and into the Northern Atlantic Ocean. Once the tropical system moves into those cooler North Atlantic waters, it will likely diminish relatively quickly.
