Tropical Storm Chris – Day 3

/Tropical Storm ChrisPosition: 43.6N 42.9W [10PM CDT 0300 UTC].
Movement: North [000°] near 14 mph [22 kph].
Maximum sustained winds: 65 mph [100 kph].
Wind Gusts: 80 mph [130 kph].
Tropical Storm Wind Radius: 70 miles [110 km].
Minimum central pressure: 987 mb ↓.

Currently about 540 miles [ 870 km] East-Southeast of Cape Race, Newfoundland.

This is the first hurricane of the season, and it should have been weakening at those latitudes, not strengthening. The old assumptions aren’t very reliable anymore.

Chris is back down to Tropical Storm strength and making the expected turn.
