Tropical Storm Chantal forms in Atlantic

Tracking the Tropics

TAMPA (WFLA) – Tropical Storm Chantal continues to spin in the North Atlantic. It’s the third named storm of the 2019 Atlantic Hurricane season.

The system will head away from the U.S. coast and eventually do a loop in the cooler waters in the north Atlantic. It will weaken to a tropical depression and then a remnant low early next week.

Thankfully for Florida residents, the storm will stay out to sea over the next five days.

The National Hurricane Center says Chantal is currently at 40 miles-per-hour.

It poses no threat to Florida or the East Coast.
