Chris was the first Atlantic hurricane of the season for a few hours Thursday, before weakening again to tropical storm status.
The storm is travelling a little under a thousand kilometres off the coast of Newfoundland. It is not expected to pose any threat to land.
The National Hurricane Center says the storm is expected to weaken even more on Friday.
No coastal watches or warnings have been issued.
The Atlantic hurricane season kicked off on June 1 and will run through November 30.
Despite two named storms forming before the official season start date, this year's Atlantic hurricane season could be quieter than average for Canadians.
"We do have El Niņo on the go in the Pacific Ocean and that's one of our main dictators for this hurricane season," says Chris Fogarty with the Canadian Hurricane Centre.
