Leeds could see some showers this afternoon as the United Kingdom prepares for the arrival of Tropical Storm Chris over the weekend.

Tropical Storm Chris strengthened in the mid-Atlantic and was expected to become a hurricane on Monday evening or Tuesday, while the former Hurricane Beryl dwindled into a heavy rainstorm threatening to bring flooding to Puerto Rico, forecasters said.

Social media users have shared their own videos and messages of support for Miss Hojabri using the hashtag #dancing_isn't_a_crime. She was among the many Instagram users arrested by authorities for posting videos on the social media platform in recent weeks.

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.

Storm Chris could hit these shores and have an impact on the north of England and Scotland over the weekend, with the potential for heavy downpours and thundery showers caused by what will be an ex-hurricane by the time it hits the UK.

Hurricane Chris is expected to pass south of Nova Scotia on Thursday, creating high waves along the Atlantic coast. A tropical storm becomes a hurricane when its top sustained winds reach 74 miles per hour (120 kph).

The National Weather Service issued a flash-flood watch for Puerto Rico, warning of thunderstorms and wind gusts. Tropical storm watches were in effect for Dominica and Guadeloupe. "Little development is expected during the next day or so due to land interaction and unfavorable upper-level winds".

Eventually, experts say, some insurers could simply get fed up and exit ObamaCare markets, leading to fewer choices for consumers. The agency says the court ruling also prevents it from collecting additional risk-adjustment funds until the issue is resolved.

She said a "blip" in the current hot weather, which is not down to Chris, is seeing temperatures in the south east drop to around 23-25C (73-77F) and further north to 21-22C (69-71F) in Birmingham or 17-18C (62-64F) in Newcastle but temperatures "will increase a few degrees to the weekend".
