Environment Canada has also issued a “Tropical Cyclone Information Statement” about Tropical Storm Chris which formed off the coast of the Carolinas over the weekend. It’s expected to become a Hurricane later today and will probably effect our weather late in the week…like Thursday/Friday. Right now the weather office basically says there’s a lot of uncertainty about the storm and we’ll know more in the next couple of days.
