Chantal forecast map, July 10

No monster: Weakened Chantal could still hit U.S.

Tropical Storm Chantal hasn’t blown up into a monster, and it looks like things will stay that way.

The satellite presentation of the storm didn't look too impressive overnight, but Chantal still has signs of life, with new storms developing around its center Wednesday morning. This should be short-lived as Chantal breezes over the mountainous terrain of Haiti this afternoon. Tropical storm warnings are posted for Haiti and the Dominican Republic for Wednesday, but winds aren’t expected to get over 45 mph. Rain will be the main threat for Hispaniola.
