Everything is just right for Chris to turn into a hurricane while the storm leading it will never get listed in the hurricane archive. The hurricane quickly picked up speed, though, and the National Hurricane Center (NHC) upgraded it to a Category 2 hurricane in an advisory shortly before midnight.

Environment Canada updated its forecast early Thursday morning, with a warning that heavy rain, strong winds, significant waves and storm surges could hit coastal areas of the island on Thursday.

Heavy rain and strong winds are expected to hammer parts of eastern Newfoundland today as hurricane Chris tracks towards the region.

Chris has become the second hurricane of the 2018 season, but it will continue to pull moisture away from Florida.

"Rip current danger is still high today, but by tomorrow, the storm will be dissipating in the North Atlantic and the danger will be easing up", said Gardner.

- Tropical Storm Chris has been churning in the Atlantic Ocean for a few days, and although it is expected to gain hurricane strength, it is not expected to make landfall in the U.S.

"While some heavy rain is possible, especially across the northwest of the United Kingdom, it may be more welcome than usual, given the prolonged dry spell".

Beryl coming back to life?

Meanwhile, the remnants of Beryl remain disorganized over the western Atlantic while dumping showers and thunderstorms in the Bahamas. Hurricane force winds extend 25 miles outward from the center while tropical storm force winds extend out 90 miles.

Although the storm is several hundred miles off of our coast, it's still creating risky surf conditions up and down the entire North Carolina coastline. It may pass close enough to Bermuda to bring periods of rain, gusty winds and rough surf over the weekend.
