A little better coverage of showers can be expected Wednesday as deeper moisture should move northward off the Gulf. The next cold front will be in our area Friday morning with scattered showers and thunderstorms rather likely Thursday evening into Friday. Cooler and drier air will take over this weekend.
Ex-Tropical Storm Chris weakens, advisories stop
MIAMI (AP) - A day after spending mere hours as a hurricane, the former Tropical Storm Chris was weakening in the north Atlantic and not headed for any land.
Friday, June 22 2012, 02:54 PM CDT
The storm's maximum sustained winds Friday have decreased to near 45 mph (75 kph). The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami says the tropical storm has become a post-tropical system and it will no longer issue advisories.
Chris is centered about 335 miles (535 kilometers) east-southeast of Cape Race, Newfoundland, and is moving west-northwest at 16 mph (26 kph).
