Tropical Storm Chantal has strengthend a bit this morning packing winds of 60mph. It is still moving quickly through the Leeward Islands and will emerge in the Caribbean this afternoon. The track still brings Chantal toward the Dominican Republic and Haiti later this week, and by the weekend a weakened Chantal could be bringing heavy rains to the Bahamas.
Model data changes up a bit beyond day 5, stalling Chantal over the northern Bahamas or the east coast of the United States between Florida and the Carolinas.
