Tropical Storm Chantal

Tropical Depression #3 is now Tropical Storm Chantal, but it's heading away from us, possibly towards Newfoundland and Iceland.  Another system is heading towards the Carribbean Sea, with more coming off Africa.  (It's that time of the year.)

AND the official reports:

THE NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER HAS ISSUED THE LAST ADVISORY ON TROPICAL STORM
CHANTAL...RAPIDLY BECOMING EXTRATROPICAL ABOUT 260 MILES EAST-SOUTHEAST OF
HALIFAX NOVA SCOTIA.

[[But.....]]

THE AREA OF LOW PRESSURE ASSOCIATED WITH A TROPICAL WAVE HAS CONTINUED TO
MOVE WESTWARD AND IS CENTERED ABOUT 425 MILES EAST OF THE SOUTHERN WINDWARD
ISLANDS. THE SHOWER ACTIVITY REMAINS DISORGANIZED BUT ENVIRONMENTAL
CONDITIONS APPEAR TO BE FAVORABLE FOR A TROPICAL DEPRESSION TO FORM DURING
THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS...AS THE SYSTEM MOVES WESTWARD AT 10 TO 15 MPH.

EVEN IF DEVELOPMENT DOES NOT OCCUR...THIS SYSTEM WILL LIKELY BRING A FEW
SQUALLS TO THE WINDWARD ISLANDS DURING THE NEXT DAY OR SO. AN AIR FORCE
PLANE IS SCHEDULED TO INVESTIGATE THE SYSTEM ON WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON...====

(Thanks, Lloyd!)
