Tropical Storm Chris may have maxed out on its strength as it moves toward energy-sapping cooler waters in the northern Atlantic.
The storm isn't expected to threaten land.
The storm's maximum sustained winds had increased to 60 mph (95 kph) by late Wednesday. Forecasters said earlier Wednesday that the storm had probably reached its peak intensity.
Chris is centered about 635 miles (1022 kilometers) south of Cape Race, Newfoundland, and is moving east-northeastward near 22 mph (35 kph).
A forecast map predicts that the storm will stay well away from land through the weekend, though storm tracks are hard to discern days in advance.
