Although there are now no coastal watches or warnings in effect, weather officials warned that Hurricane Chris could potentially produce heavy surf and create life-threatening rip-currents along the East Coast in the coming days. "The colder waters have likely stabilized the boundary layer, which has inhibited stronger winds aloft from mixing down to the surface", according to the National Hurricane Center (NHC).

"Based on current forecasts we do not expect the storm to affect our offshore operations", a BP spokeswoman said.
Hurricane Chris is moving at 22 miles per hour and is expected to continue picking up speed for several days, and the National Hurricane Center named it a Category 2 storm.
Chris was upgraded to a Hurricane as of the Tuesday afternoon advisory from the Hurricane Center. Atlantic Canada residents are being warned these conditions could cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.
On the forecast track, the center of Chris will pass over or near southeastern Newfoundland Thursday afternoon or evening.
Officials are warning of an increased risk of rip currents at the Jersey Shore and the DE beaches as Hurricane Chris churns out in the Atlantic.
