Forecasters say Tropical Storm Chris is accelerating off the coast of Newfoundland in the Atlantic Ocean but poses no threat to land.

The National Hurricane Center said late Tuesday that the storm had maximum sustained winds of 45 mph (75 kph) and was moving east at 13 mph (21 kph)

The high-altitude storm is some 565 miles (909 kilometers) south-southwest of Cape Race. No coastal watches or warnings have been issued.

Forecasters say Chris is not expected to strengthen and will fizzle out by Wednesday night or Thursday.
