Chantal in rapid decline

Posted: Updated:

What's left of Tropical Storm Chantal is nothing more than heavy rain and some gusty winds. The National Hurricane Center has downgraded the once tropical storm into no more than a tropical wave. Chantal began seeing wind shear as it was moving so quickly across the Atlantic Basin, and it soon encountered strong westerly winds. In addition to shear, as it moves across terrain and even flirts with some dry air to the SW, there is no favorable development expected in the immediate future. There is no organized center of circulation associated with Chantal. Some models are forecasting the system to potentially redevelop into a weak tropical storm as it reaches the eastern seaboard, but even this scenario may be over dramatized and would likely not happen for at least a few days. Models are still guiding these remnants to the eastern side of Florida, so CenLa will more than likely be spared from this system. The impact on the SE will likely be some heavy rainfall and a few gusty winds.
