I don't know why you believe Chris has been "resiliant" (sic). It hasn't been so at all. It's a small storm that has proven especially labile given that it fell apart unexpectedly in a matter of 12 hours two nights ago. The NHC admitted that it was likely being generous in keeping Chris a minimal TS as long as it did. Last night, as convection erupted on the southeast side, it was easily brushed away and erased by shear.
There is too often a desire to see the extraordinary in every storm that forms. This was a small and ordinary system that, after initially surprising forecasters and models alike with a quick burst of organizing behavior, has ended up proving quite fragile.
Perhaps it will survive to thrive again, but for now, "resilient" is hardly the most apt descriptor.
