Hurricane Chris to bring rain to the United Kingdom next week

Hurricane Chris, a category 2 storm now, was churning away from the Mid-Atlantic coast on Tuesday and isn't expected to make landfall in the mainland US, the National Hurricane Center said. Chris is continuing to gain forward speed today, now moving northeast at a quick 22 miles per hour.

It looks like the UK's heatwave is set to come to an end as the remnants of a powerful hurricane swirling along the USA east coast is due to hit Britain.

Post-tropical storm Chris barreled towards Newfoundland Thursday, bringing powerful winds, heavy downpours and pounding surf.

When he went to investigate the source of the odor, he found both Hargrave and the man near the running vehicle. It was there where police say he found his wife, 39-year-old Tameka Hargrave, and the male mechanic.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 40 miles (65 kilometers) from the center, and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 175 miles (280 kilometers). As this happens, Chris will encounter cooler waters and weaken.

Environment Canada said that more details will become available as the storm's track and intensity becomes more certain.

National Hurricane Center expects Chris to strengthen into a hurricane Tuesday.

Advisories were still in effect Wednesday for swells generated by Chris that could cause deadly rip currents. Chris is moving to the northeast at 29 miles per hour (46 kph) with maximum sustained winds of 85 miles per hour (140 kph). It will likely be a tropical storm by then, on Thursday night.

The area could be hit by heavy rain, strong winds and waves with storm surge along parts of the coast, the centre said. Chris will continue to gain speed and reach the Canadian province of Newfoundland late Thursday and will pass near Iceland this weekend.

According to weather forecasters, Hurricane Chris is expected to gain strength throughout Wednesday before weakening Thursday as it heads out to sea and away from USA coastal areas.
