Tropical Storm Chantal Weakening

Tropical Storm Chantal has weakened since the last post. Conditions are no longer good for development. Winds are down to 40 mph and Chantal may, in fact, no longer even have closed circulation. A hunter aircraft is en route to examine the storm. As of 8:00 AM Chantal is moving west at 29 mph. The projected path of Chantal is unchanged, crossing Hispaniola lengthwise and part of Cuba, then turning sharply right and heading up the east coast of Florida, however it will likely be only a tropical depression by the time it reaches Cuba and may dissipate before reaching Florida.
