Interests in Atlantic Canada should monitor the progress of Chris. DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK ---------------------- At 1100 AM AST (1500 UTC), the center of Post-Tropical Cyclone Chris was located near latitude 44.4 North, longitude 57.7 West. The post-tropical cyclone is moving toward the northeast near 36 mph (57 km/h) and this motion is expected to continue through Friday. On the forecast track, Chris is expected to pass over or near the Avalon Peninsula of southeastern Newfoundland late afternoon and early evening today. Maximum sustained winds are near 70 mph (110 km/h) with higher gusts. Slight weakening is forecast during the next 48 hours. Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 205 miles (335 km) from the center. A Canadian buoy just east of the center recently reported a sustained wind of 58 mph (94 km/h) and gust to 71 mph (115 km/h). The estimated minimum central pressure is 987 mb (29.15 inches). HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND ---------------------- SURF: Even though Chris is moving away from the United States, swells generated by the storm will affect portions of the coast from North Carolina northward to New England during the next couple of days. Swells will spread northward along the southern coasts of Nova Scotia and Newfoundland overnight and into Thursday. These swells could cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions. Please consult products from your local weather office. RAINFALL: Chris is expected to produce total rain accumulations of 1 to 3 inches (25 to 75 millimeters) over Newfoundland, with possible isolated maximum amounts of 6 inches (150 millimeters). These rains may cause flash flooding. Sable Island has received more than 2.3 inches (60 millimeters) of rainfall during the past few hours.

Public Advisory not available for this storm.
574 WTNT43 KNHC 121459 TCDAT3 Post-Tropical Cyclone Chris Discussion Number 24 NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL AL032018 1100 AM AST Thu Jul 12 2018 Extratropical transition has been ongoing for the past few hours, with the rain shield continuing to expand and clouds tops warming in the northwestern semicircle. In addition, surface observations close to the center now show a sharp temperature gradient of almost 20 deg F across the center, which is indicative of the cyclone having merged with a cold frontal system. As a result, Chris has become a post-tropical/extratropical cyclone. The intensity of 60 kt is based on continuity with the previous advisory and earlier ASCAT scatterometer passes. Gradual weakening is forecast by all of the intensity model guidance, but the cyclone is still expected to remain a gale area through 72 hours. Chris has made a slight westward jog, but the latest model guidance insists that the cyclone will start moving back toward the northeast or 045 degrees at 30-31 kt. Post-tropical cyclone Chris is forecast to remain embedded within the fast mid-latitude westerly flow on the east side of a broad, deep-layer trough moving eastward over the northeastern United States and southeastern Canada for the next 48 hours or so. By 72 hours, the cyclone is expected to slow down and begin moving northward as it interacts with a larger mid-latitude upper-level low. The NHC model guidance remains tightly packed, so only minor adjustments to the previous advisory track were required, and mainly in just the first 12 hours. On the forecast track, the center of Chris is expected to pass over or near the Avalon Peninsula of southeastern Newfoundland around 2100-0000 UTC this afternoon and evening. This is the last public advisory issued by the National Hurricane Center on this system. Additional information on this system can be found in High Seas Forecasts issued by the National Weather Service, under AWIPS header NFDHSFAT1, WMO header FZNT01 KWBC, and available on the Web at https://ocean.weather.gov/shtml/NFDHSFAT1.shtml.
