DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 1100 AM EDT (1500 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Chris was
located near latitude 32.2 North, longitude 74.5 West. Chris has
been nearly stationary the past several hours, and little motion is
expected during the next day or so. A northeastward motion is
forecast to begin late Tuesday, and Chris is forecast to accelerate
northeastward on Wednesday and Thursday.

Reports from a NOAA reconnaissance aircraft indicate that maximum
sustained winds remain near 60 mph (95 km/h) with higher gusts.
However, strengthening is expected to begin by tonight and continue
for the next couple of days, and Chris is forecast to become a
hurricane on Tuesday.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles (110 km)
from the center. During the past few hours, NOAA buoy 41002 located
just southwest of the center reported a sustained wind of 49 mph
(79 km/h) and a gust to 59 mph (94 km/h).

The estimated minimum central pressure based on data from a NOAA
reconnaissance aircraft is 999 mb (29.50 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
during the next few days. These swells could cause life-threatening
surf and rip current conditions. Please consult products from your
local weather office.
