Chris, now churning offshore, is expected remain just off the coast of North Carolina for a few days before turning north and east and heading away from the US coastline by Wednesday.

Forecasters expect it will gain hurricane strength later on Monday before moving up Gulfstream waters on a path that won't take it near the USA mainland but could cause life-threatening surf on East Coast beaches this week.

In the Atlantic Tropical Storm Chris is slowly beginning to strengthen with sustained winds now up to 50 miles per hour and gusts reaching 60 miles per hour.
