DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 500 PM EDT (2100 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Chris was
located near latitude 32.7 North, longitude 74.6 West. Chris has
barely moved since yesterday, and no significant motion is expected
during the next 2 to 3 days.

Data from an Air Force reconnaissance plane indicate that the
maximum sustained winds have increased to near 50 mph (85 km/h) with
higher gusts. Chris is forecast to become a hurricane on Monday
and additional strengthening thereafter.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 60 miles (95 km)
from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure from a reconnaissance
aircraft is 1008 mb (29.77 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
SURF: Swells generated by Chris are expected to increase and affect
portions of the coasts of North Carolina and the mid-Atlantic states
into early next week. These swells could cause life-threatening
surf and rip current conditions. Please consult products from your
local weather office.
