Hurricane Chris is rapidly strengthening, storm east of Cape Hatteras

The storm will generate risky surf conditions and life-threatening rip currents along the North Carolina and mid-Atlantic coasts the next few days as it continues to speed away from the USA, forecasters said. Luckily for coastal interests, that storm looks to follow in Chris' footsteps, staying out to sea. Satellite imagery of Chris shows a well-defined eye developing.

Northern Ireland and Scotland will be lashed by showers on Sunday before Wales and England face wet weather on Monday, the forecasting chart suggests.

Despite the appearance of a hurricane, Chris was lacking in one important factor - windspeed.

The hurricane is expected to strenghten over the next two days.

"(By the weekend) Chris is likely to join the jet stream and its remnants are likely to be carried towards the UK.

-Rain, at times heavy, becoming torrential at times west of the Avalon by mid-afternoon until mid to late evening.

Nicola Maxey, Senior Press Officer for the Met Office, explains that this sort of weather activity is typical for this time of year and although the storm is now a hurricane, by the time it reaches the United Kingdom it will be an ex-hurricane. "While we do not expect major impacts from this storm, we will continue to watch it closely".

Heavy rain of up to 100 mm in some areas could result in localized flooding, coupled with strong winds and storm surges with swells up to eight metres.

Past year was especially devastating with hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria tearing deadly paths through the Caribbean and southeastern United States.

The bookies now make it a 7/2 shot that July 2018 goes down in history as the wettest ever.
