Tropical cyclone information statement for:

Nova Scotia
Prince Edward Island:

For Tropical Storm Chris.

Tropical Storm Chris has formed off the Carolina coast this morning. Over the next few days this storm is expected to remain somewhat stationary and become better organized. By Tuesday it is forecast to move in a northeastward direction gaining strength as it does so. By late Tuesday or early Wednesday this storm could attain hurricane status. At this time it appears this storm could approach Nova Scotia by Thursday, likely weakening slightly as it does so.
It has to be noted that there is a good deal of uncertainty at this time in the forecast track and intensity of this system. The Canadian Hurricane Center has been closely monitoring this developing storm for a few days and will continue to do so. If the current forecast track remains as is, it is likely that regularly issued bulletins will begin on this system early Tuesday morning.
Please continue to monitor alerts issued by the Canadian Hurricane Centre and forecasts issued by Environment Canada.
