Chris will likely become a hurricane and potentially make a run at category 3 if conditions are right as it accelerates NE away from the East Coast.

Who had 3-2-1 on the season...or even 3-2-0 by the second week of July? The Atlantic is laughing at those who said it was bound for a quiet season...
