Was Tropical Storm Chris the Most Northern ever forming Tropical Storm this early in the year (June)?

The above graphic is from the NHC interactive map at: http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/graphics_at3.shtml?gm_track#contents

The figures below show the points of tropical cyclone genesis by 10-day periods during the hurricane season. These figures depict named storms only; no subtropical storms or unnamed storms. The source years include 1851-2009 for the Atlantic and 1949-2009 for the Eastern Pacific from the HURDAT database.

Was Tropical Storm Chris the earliest most northern forming tropical storm? And if so, what does this mean in terms of the climatology of tropical storms for the future?

Keep an eye to the Gulf of Mexico – no pun intended,
