The storm, however, may produce risky 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.

Tropical Storm Chris was upgraded to hurricane status Tuesday after it increased in speed and strength as forecasters warned that it would bring risky rip currents to the Jersey Shore this week.

As of the 5:00 p.m. advisory, winds had begun to increase to near 85 miles per hour with higher gusts.

Friday and Saturday our July thunderstorms return mainly late in the afternoon with highs in the lower 90s.

Tropical systems are capable of becoming much stronger than higher latitude storms called cyclones because tropical cyclones convert warm ocean water into energy which strengthens the warm core in a hurricanes eye. It's expected to remain "well offshore" of the US coast, forecasters say, instead steadily heading for Newfoundland while picking up forward speed through Thursday night.

A hurricane across the Atlantic may "influence" Britain's hot weather possibly bringing wind and rain next week. This means rough surf and risky rip currents.

Meteorologist Aidan McGivern, speaking in a Met Office Facebook post, said: "Developments on the other side of the pond could very well disrupt weather patterns in the vicinity of the UK".

Hurricane Chris is expected to pass south of Nova Scotia on Thursday, creating high waves along the Atlantic coast.
