 WATCHES AND WARNINGS -------------------- There are no tropical cyclone coastal watches or warnings in effect.
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.
