Hurricane Chris: Forecasters say Atlantic Ocean beachgoers should be wary -- latest updates

The remnants of Hurricane Beryl have a 50 percent chance of reforming into a storm within five days forecasters said Tuesday morning. This is the five-day outlook map as of 7 a.m. Tuesday

Met Office spokeswoman Nicola Maxey said that tropical storm Chris, which is building on the U.S. east coast and is predicted to become a hurricane, "will influence the weather but we can not tell what that influence will be at the moment because it is still developing".

"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.

Rough surf and risky rip currents will continue to impact coastal areas of the Eastern Seaboard through Friday, as the storm sends large ocean waves and makes for unsafe swimming conditions at all Tri-State Area beaches.

Chris began a northeastern course from late Tuesday off the US Atlantic coast.

Environment Canada issued a special weather statement for parts of Newfoundland, warning of strong winds, heavy rain and pounding surf on Thursday. These swells could cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions. But if you do venture in the water, be sure to do so only under the supervision of a lifeguard. Once you're free from the current, you can then attempt to swim back toward the shore.

Rubiales also appointed former La Roja and Deportivo La Coruna goalkeeper Jose Francisco Molina as Spain's new sporting director. Belgium gaffer Roberto Martinez was tipped to manage his country having guided the Red Devils to the World Cup semi-finals.

"There could also be some decent waves along the Atlantic coast, with wave heights as high as four metres for Cape Breton", Hubbard said.

Chris is starting to move northeast around 9 miles per hour.

By Thursday the cold front moves closer and we can once again expect rain chances across Middle Georgia.

The remnants of Beryl looked set on Monday to bring 2 to 4 inches (5-10 cm) of rain to Puerto Rico, which is still trying to recover from hurricanes that walloped the US territory a year ago, causing an estimated $90 billion in damage.
