DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 500 PM AST (2100 UTC), the center of Hurricane Chris was located
near latitude 37.8 North, longitude 65.7 West. Chris is moving
toward the northeast near 25 mph (41 km/h). The hurricane is
expected to remain on this general heading with an increase in
forward speed for the next several days. On the forecast track the
center of Chris will pass over or near southeastern Newfoundland
Thursday afternoon or evening.

Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 90 mph (150 km/h)
with higher gusts. Little change in strength is expected this
evening. Steady weakening is forecast to begin on Thursday, and
Chris will likely also become a strong post-tropical cyclone by
Thursday afternoon.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 35 miles (55 km) from the
center, and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 160
miles (260 km).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 976 mb (28.82 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
SURF: Swells generated by Hurricane Chris are expected to 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.

RAINFALL: Chris is expected to produce total rain accumulations of
1 to 3 inches (25 to 75 millimeters) over Newfoundland, with
possible isolated maximum amounts of 6 inches (150 millimeters).
These rains may cause flash flooding.
