Tropical Storm Chantal remains a weak tropical storm, and tropical storm warnings remain in effect throughout the eastern Caribbean.  Sustained winds are down to 45 mph.  Chantal is moving quickly to the west at 29 mph.

The computer weather models have been little help as of late, and are now farther apart with the track of this storm than they were yesterday.  They all take the storm across southern Hispaniola (Dominican Republic & Haiti) today, and across Cuba tomorrow.  A handfull of them now put the storm into the Gulf of Mexico and the other half up the Florida coast.

At this point, the National Hurricane Center's official forecast follows takes the storm more towards Florida's east coast as opposed to the Gulf.

The official forecast (from the National Hurricane Center) now parks the remnants of Chantal off Georgia's coast this weekend.  Given the uncertainty among the models, this forecast is subject to change.  The picture will become clearer by the end of the work week.

It's too early to get specific on exactly where this storm will head, but the Eyewitness Weather Team will keep you posted as the forecast details become clearer.
