    Meanwhile with this storm, keep an eye on it too. Some models like the GFS and HWRF want to bring it close to the NC/SC coast.

    for this one looks like the stronger faster developing system will be farther west and weaker will leak east

    This is now TD #3. Though this will likely take its time, it should stay offshore the US.

    The HWRF looks like a Raleigh rain maker but also a big wind risk. Sits there for about a day and a half.

    And that starts a streak of 2. Wonder if it's going to be like last year where we keep getting only hurricanes until October. Crazy that only Alberto wasn't a hurricane so far. It came close though.

    Though not officially, IR clearly says we have our second hurricane of the new season.

    Chris is still a strong tropical storm. Still expected to be a hurricane later today.

    Chris has to be a cat 1 hurricane now. Recon indicates at least 65 knot winds and pressure is in the 980 mbs now it seems.

    Not official, but Chris will be am 85 mph hurricane at 5 and has a pressure of 984 mb per recon. Also, winds in the SE eyewall are just below major hurricane strength at 973 mb. Just something to watch, but it may become a major hurricane.

    Now officially a hurricane with winds of 85 mph and a pressure of 980. Each storm this year has been more intense than the last and also each storm that has been within hurricane season has been a hurricane.
