Chris is starting to move northeast around 9 miles per hour.

When NASA's Aqua satellite passed over the U.S. Eastern seaboard, it captured an infrared image of Hurricane Chris that showed an eye staring back at the satellite.

TROPICAL STORM CHRIS: Chris has turned into an extratropical, or cold core, storm as it zips across the chilly North Atlantic Ocean into weekend.

North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper warned beachgoers on Monday to beware of unsafe rip currents after an unidentified man in his mid-60s drowned in rough surf just north of Nags Head when he was caught in a rough surf current caused by the storm.

The hurricane has reached winds of 85 miles per hour, making it a Category 1 storm and the second named hurricane for the Atlantic season.


So in the satellite above, the hole in the middle of the clouds is the center of Tropical Storm Chris, which is about to become a hurricane.

Yorkshire could see some showers this afternoon as the United Kingdom prepares for the arrival of Tropical Storm Chris over the weekend.

Hurricane Chris continues to be a solid Category 2 late Wednesday morning after rapidly intensifying last night.

The storm could bring as much as 6 inches of rain and localized flash flooding to Newfoundland, forecasters said. On the forecast track the center of Chris will pass near southeastern Newfoundland, Canada on Thursday, July 12.

The forecast calls for Chris making landfall or passing just south of the Avalon Peninsula as a strong post-tropical storm Thursday evening.
