The storm, however, may produce unsafe surf conditions, including a high rip along the coast of North Carolina and the mid-Atlantic states in the next few days and potentially creating life-threatening conditions, the NHC said in an advisory.

There is still "uncertainty" about the possible track it will take and it would be an ex-hurricane by the weekend when it may hit the UK.

Tropical Storm Chris was expected to become a hurricane on Tuesday and create unsafe swells along the coast of North Carolina and mid-Atlantic states, the National Hurricane Center said.

Hurricane Chris was located about 205 miles east-southeast of Cape Hatteras, N.C., moving to the northeast at 10 mph.

There were no coastal watching or warnings in effect as of Tuesday afternoon.

Yorkshire is now expected to see wet weather and showers over the next few days, including heavy showers on Thursday, whilst the Lake District and surrounding areas could see thunderstorms.

As of 5 p.m. the hurricane continued to churn just over 200 miles off the coast of North Carolina and move in a northeasterly direction. Even if it doesn't strengthen back into a tropical storm, forecasters said winds and rain could be expected in Hispaniola and the Bahamas.

It was expected to gain strength Tuesday and Wednesday before weakening Thursday. "However, the disturbance is expected to turn northward over the western Atlantic on Wednesday where upper-level winds could become a little more conducive for the regeneration of a tropical cyclone later this week".
