Environment Canada says hurricane Chris will steer clear of Nova Scotia before bringing heavy rainfall and strong winds to the southeastern half of Newfoundland as a post-tropical storm late Thursday.

For Newfoundland waters, storm and gale warnings are in effect near and adjacent to the storm's track with 10-metre high waves a possibility.

According to weather forecasters, Hurricane Chris is expected to gain strength throughout Wednesday before weakening Thursday as it heads out to sea and away from US coastal areas.

NHC downgraded Chris from Category Two to a Category One hurricane.

Tropical storm Chris, a compact system that came together off the Carolinas, was expected to gain hurricane strength Tuesday and set off on a northeastward course away from the East Coast. Maximum sustained winds have lowered to 90 miles per hour, and the storm was not expected to gain strength the rest of Wednesday.

On Thursday, a weak front will slowly back down the Carolina Coast and generate the Cape Fear Region's highest chance of showers and storms so far this week.

The storm was expected to produce 1 inch to 3 inches of rain over Newfoundland as it headed northeast, with possible isolated accumulations of 6 inches. Atlantic Canada residents are being warned these conditions could cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.

Ms Thornton said the fate of the weather depends on the position of the jet stream - the winds blowing from west to east in the upper atmosphere.

Forecasters said Chris was starting to look like a storm beginning that transition on Thursday morning.

"We continue to monitor, but based on current forecasts we do not expect the storm to affect our offshore operations", ExxonMobil spokesman Merle MacIsaac said in an email, referring to the Sable project.
