Ex-Tropical Storm Chris weakens, advisories stop

MIAMI — A day after spending mere hours as a hurricane, the former Tropical Storm Chris was weakening in the north Atlantic and not headed for any land.

The storm's maximum sustained winds Friday have decreased to near 45 mph. The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami says the tropical storm has become a post-tropical system and it will no longer issue advisories.

Chris is centered about 335 miles east-southeast of Cape Race, Newfoundland, and is moving west-northwest at 16 mph.
