Meteorologist Jeff Smith has the latest on the path of the storm and the risk of dangerous currents

Tropical Rainstorm Chris remains a powerful storm with sustained wind of 65 mph as it is now racing away from the Atlantic Canada coast.

Rough seas and surf will continue along the coast on Friday.


If you get caught in a rip current, signal for help and then swim parallel to the beach until you don't feel yourself being pulled farther offshore. Once you're free from the current, you can then attempt to swim back toward the shore. Never try to swim against a rip current as you will tire quickly.

Meteorologist Jeff Smith has more on what you need to know about potentially dangerous rip currents



Tropical Rainstorm Beryl an open tropical wave with no closed low-level center of circulation will move into an environment more favorable for tropical development Friday and will remain in a region of lower shear and warm water through Saturday.

Since Beryl has no low-level circulation center at this point, redevelopment will be difficult but not impossible. The best chance for redevelopment will be in the next 24-48 hours.

The rest of the Atlantic Basin is under the influence of dry air, dust and strong vertical wind shear. As a result, we are not expecting any new tropical development across the basin through the rest of this week and probably through the weekend.
