Environment Canada says given the storm's existing track, the strongest winds are expected to be over Newfoundland's Avalon Peninsula.
Tropical Storm Chris is shown off the eastern coast of North and SC, U.S., in this satellite image July 9, 2018 at 16:12 UTC.
Hurricane Chris has been downgraded to a tropical storm today.
Meanwhile, Hurricane Chris was moving toward the northeast near 25 mph, about 570 miles east-northeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina.
"These swells could cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions", the National Hurricane Center said.
Southeastern winds will increase and gust to roughly 80km/h overnight on July 12 before switching over to northwesterly gusts of 70 km/h by morning on July 13.
By the weekend we see a small cool down, but storm chances remain in the forecast for the next 7 days.
"What is likely to happen though as Chris crosses the Northern Atlantic waters is that the system will weaken and get caught up along a cold front that will be working east-northeastward towards Scotland".
"One projection showing low pressure just to the west of the United Kingdom is bringing wind and rain, but on another Chris is barely there".
The North West can expect to see some wet and showery weather towards the end of the week, as well as thunderstorms in some parts of the region over the weekend.
The storm had 70mph winds with tropical-storm-force winds extending up to 175 miles from the centre of the storm.
