Tropical Storm Chantal was torn apart Wednesday afternoon and evening because of interactions with landmasses (like Hispaniola) & wind shear. Rough waves, heavy rain, gusty winds continue, and will impact eastern Cuba, Hispaniola and the Bahamas. –Carrie

Carrie Rose says, “Chantal will weaken over the next several days as it interacts with landmasses and atmospheric wind shear, which will tear its organization apart. Even though the wind speeds and organization will be significantly lower, the system is still tropical in nature, carrying ample moisture and heavy rain potential, as well as producing dangerous waves and rough coastal surf in the path of the system.”

Carrie Rose says, “Chantal is still a Tropical Storm after confirmation from an Air Force Hurricane Hunter plane investigation this morning. Although a closed center of circulation was difficult to determine from satellite data, the plane’s fly-throughs verified that Chantal is still an organized Tropical Storm.”
