WATCHES AND WARNINGS
--------------------

DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 500 PM EDT (2100 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Chris was
located by an Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft to be near
latitude 32.2 North, longitude 74.4 West. Chris has remained nearly
stationary the past several hours, and little motion is expected
during the next day or so. A northeastward motion should begin by
late Tuesday, and Chris is forecast to accelerate northeastward on
Wednesday and Thursday.

Reports from the reconnaissance aircraft indicate that maximum
sustained winds have increased to near 70 mph (110 km/h) with higher
gusts. Additional strengthening is expected during the next couple
of days, and Chris is forecast to become a hurricane later tonight
or Tuesday morning.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles (110 km)
from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure based on data from the Air
Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft is 996 mb (29.42 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.
