Tropical Storm Chris continues to spin not far off the North Carolina coast and is currently centered roughly 200 miles to the south-southeast of Cape Hatteras.
Tropical Storm Chris continues to intensify and has maximum sustained winds of 70 mph, just shy of hurricane force.
The storm is finally starting to move. The latest update shows it now starting to move to the northeast at roughly 2 mph.
Where is Chris?
The storm remains in an environment that will continue to gradually strengthen it as it is centered over the warm waters of the Gulf Stream.
By late Monday, Chris is expected to intensify into a hurricane as it continues to become better organized.
Will it make landfall, where is it going?
Chris will remain offshore over the next several days, accelerating away from the United States later this week.
By Thursday and Friday, Chris will bring heavy rain and gusty winds to portions of Atlantic Canada.

Rain amounts of 1-2 inches with localized amounts of 4-6 inches can lead to localized flash flooding and mudslides.
Wind gusts of 40-60 mph may produce isolated power outages and minor tree damage, mainly over Guadeloupe and/or Dominica.
