Tropical Storm Chris poses a threat

I have been watching this system for a while (at least 5 days). I have seen the NHC say that it was possible that it could form, then say that it was unlikely to form, and then watch them declare it a tropical depression. All along, I secretely thought that this may become something big. And, it is slowly becoming that way. At 5 PM AST, the NHC put out an advisory saying that Chris had maximum sustained winds of 45 mph. Five minutes later, they put out an update saying that based on recon data, "the maximum sustained winds in Chris have increased to near 60 mph" and that a special advisory reflecting these changes would be released. Keep an eye out for this storm.
