Zombies appear to be everywhere these days—even the current U.S. tropical storm "Chris" is reported to be acting like a "zombie" storm, according to AccuWeather.com meteorologists.
"The storm is still alive, but it should not be," AccuWeather.com senior meteorologist Rob Miller stated Wednesday morning. "The storm is not in a region that is prone to tropical development. Water temperatures are in the low to mid 70s."
Ideal water temperatures for tropical development are 78 degrees and higher, because tropical systems are fueled by warm waters, he stated. In fact, the whole purpose of tropical storms and hurricanes in the atmosphere is to redistribute heat, indicates AccuWeather experts.
Furthermore, Chris does not look like a well-organized tropical system on satellite, said Miller.
Chris is not expected to hit land as it moves east and away from the coast before it dissipates by the end of the week, said AccuWeather senior meteorologist Dave Samuhel.
This "zombie" tropical storm is forecast to become a post-tropical cyclone by early Thursday.
