Weather officials said in a release that the storm could produce heavy surf and create life-threatening rip currents.

Met Office spokeswoman Nicola Maxey said that tropical storm Chris, which is building on the USA east coast and is predicted to become a hurricane, "will influence the weather but we can not tell what that influence will be at the moment because it is still developing".

As of 5 p.m. the hurricane continued to churn just over 200 miles off the coast of North Carolina and move in a northeasterly direction.

Hurricane Chris is now about 205 miles off the coast of Cape Hatteras, with sustained maximum wind speeds of 85 mph extending at least 15 miles from the center.

Yorkshire is now expected to see wet weather and showers over the next few days, including heavy showers on Thursday, whilst the Lake District and surrounding areas could see thunderstorms. 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 Rip Current Statement was issued for the Outer Banks.

Interests along the coast of North Carolina and in Atlantic Canada should monitor the progress of Hurricane Chris.

Chris was forecasted to begin weakening by Thursday, and become a strong post-tropical cyclone by Thursday night or early Friday.
