WATCHES AND WARNINGS

DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 500 PM EDT (2100 UTC), the center of Hurricane Chris was located
near latitude 33.7 North, longitude 72.4 West. Chris is moving
toward the northeast near 10 mph (17 km/h). A continued
northeastward motion accompanied by a steady increase in forward
speed is expected through Thursday night.

Reports from an Air Force Reserve hurricane hunter aircraft indicate
that maximum sustained winds have increased to near 85 mph (140
km/h) with higher gusts. Some additional strengthening is forecast
tonight and Wednesday. Chris is forecast to begin weakening by
Thursday, and become a strong post-tropical cyclone by Thursday
night or early Friday.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 15 miles (30 km) from the
center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 90 miles
(150 km).

The minimum central pressure recently measured by the reconnaissance
aircraft was 980 mb (28.94 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
SURF: Swells generated by Hurricane 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.
