Movement: East-Northeast [075°] near 22 mph [35 kph].
Maximum sustained winds: 60 mph [ 95 kph].

It is picking up speed as it edges North and getting slightly stronger, but it is running out of warm water and will probably transition to Post-Tropical. It still isn’t considered a threat to coastlines.

That amorphous patch across from Cuba to the Yucatan just upgraded to a 30 percent chance of forming a tropical cyclone. Eyes open, everyone…

Looks like it might get caught a pulled northeast after it gets in the Gulf. It could be a problem for the west coast of the Florida peninsula.

At the moment it is dealing with wind shear and dry air, or it would spin up, because the water is more than warm enough.

The satellite images of Chris look more like a hurricane than a tropical storm, but it is hitting colder water, so it will only be short-lived.
