Let's add another system on top of Beryl now.
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.
The 0z and 6z runs have my attention now
for this one looks like the stronger faster developing system will be farther west and weaker will leak east
Just close enough to be on the super dry side for SD and CR
This is now TD #3. Though this will likely take its time, it should stay offshore the US.
Forecast to be another hurricane in July lol
The HWRF looks like a Raleigh rain maker but also a big wind risk. Sits there for about a day and a half.
looks like the 0z HWRF is back to staying offshore
what a depressing storm.
Looking good this afternoon

UKMET has a significant hurricane into Cape Cod, the other major models are still well offshore
Been a slow start but its starting to look a lot better, recon is enroute
Looks like Chris at 5am
We have Chris!
Looking really good tonight... Easily could see hurricane in the morning
I am a good looking system.
Chris is at 60 MPH.
Chris is getting ready to becoming a hurricane. It's at 70 MPH.
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.
Still not there yet! 70 mph @ 5 am advisory. Supposed to hit 90 mph by Wednesday.
Chris is still a strong tropical storm. Still expected to be a hurricane later today.
this is like the best looking TS ever
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.
Impressive, to say the least ...
PS - Just put the link for this and several other satellite images and loops into our Wiki (Tropical Model section) ...https://www.star.nesdis.noaa.gov/GOES/GOES16_CONUS.php
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.
Dadgum, FS, slow down ... LOL ... Can't keep the name changes in Wiki current at this pace ...
