Chantal degenerates into tropical wave; warning discontinued
Published on July 10, 2013 Email To Friend    Print Version

Tropical Storm Chantal degenerated into a tropical wave on Wednesday and all coastal tropical storm warnings or watches have been discontinued.

However, tropical storm force winds could still affect Haiti and eastern Cuba during the next day or so. Heavy rains may also affect Hispaniola, Jamaica, central and eastern Cuba and the southeastern Bahamas.

Interests in eastern Cuba, Jamaica and The Bahamas should monitor the progress of the remnants of Chantal.

According to the National Hurricane Center in Miami, at 5:00 pm EDT on Wednesday, the remnants of Chantal were located about 230 miles east-southeast of Kingston, Jamaica, and about 260 miles south of the eastern tip of Cuba, and were expected to spread over Jamaica and eastern Cuba Wednesday night and Thursday and into the northwestern Bahamas by Friday.

Maximum sustained winds associated with the wave were near 45 mph, with higher gusts. Tropical storm force winds cover a large area over the waters mainly south of Hispaniola.

Tropical storm force winds could still affect Haiti and eastern Cuba during the next day or so and localized coastal flooding is possible in areas of onshore flow along portions of the south coast of Hispaniola.

The remnants of Chantal are expected to produce total rain accumulations of 3 to 6 inches over Hispaniola, Jamaica, central and eastern Cuba and the southeastern Bahamas. Isolated maximum amounts of 6 inches are possible across southern portions of Hispaniola.
