Tropical Storm Chris strengthening as it moves farther into Atlantic, NHC says

The storm is expected to track south of Nova Scotia at hurricane strength on Thursday, and is then expected to make landfall in southeastern Newfoundland on Friday as a post-tropical storm.

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

The National Hurricane Center's latest briefing said its maximum sustained winds have increased to almost 85 miles per hour with higher gusts.

No coastal watches or warnings were in effect.

Hazard moved to Lille when he was 14 and he and his brothers used to admire the French 1998 World Cup winning side. And yet, this France was unrecognizable from the French sides they had grown up watching at previous World Cups.

The Florida-based weather forecaster said some additional strengthening was forecast for Tuesday night and Wednesday. "These swells could cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions", the centre added. The hurricane is expected to strenghten over the next two days.

Tropical systems are capable of becoming much stronger than higher latitude storms called cyclones because tropical cyclones convert warm ocean water into energy which strengthens the warm core in a hurricanes eye.
