Now, all eyes turn to Tropical Storm Chris

We're watching the faraway developments of Tropical Storm Chris, which is currently about 125 miles northeast of Puerto Rico.

Current forecasts have the storm strengthening into a hurricane as early as this evening.

Its projected path, as plotted by the National Hurricane Center in Miami, puts Chris in the western Gulf of Mexico next Wednesday.
