Tropical Storm Chris - September 8-14,
An upper level low over the northeast Gulf of Mexico on September 6th
gradually worked its way
down to the surface as it moved westward. By the 9th, it acquired
tropical characteristics as thunderstorm
activity developed northeast of the center. On the morning of the
10th, the system developed into a tropical
storm. Soon after, it turned to the north to east of a trough
moving out of the Southwest. The center moved
ashore near Sabine Pass, LA early on the 11th and weakened rapidly
after moving inland. The heaviest rain
was witnessed across western Mississippi and western sections of
Tennessee and Kentucky. Below is its
track, provided by the National Hurricane Center.
