Well, well, well look what we woke up to this morning. Sigh!

The good news is that she is moving rapidly so she may not make it to the continental US.

Weather folks here had everyone upset over the weekend about a tropical wave in the Gulf. They forecast 3-5 inches of rain for our area - never got a drop!

I have a feeling it will be a long, long season with much hype.

If Chantal holds together, right now the best consensus (and it is iffy at that) is Florida.

Tropical Storm Chantal heading to Lesser Antilles

By GUY ELLIS, Associated Press | July 8, 2013 | Updated: July 9, 2013 7:10am

CASTRIES, St. Lucia (AP) — Fast-moving Tropical Storm Chantal raced toward the small islands of the Lesser Antilles on Tuesday, with residents of St. Lucia shuttering schools and preparing to close the island's two airports as it neared.

The storm was centered about 45 miles (70 kilometers) north-northwest of Barbados around 8 a.m. EDT Tuesday, the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said. The storm had maximum sustained winds near 50 mph (85 kph), and was moving west-northwest at 26 mph (43 kph).

Chantal was expected to move over the small islands on the eastern rim of the Caribbean early Tuesday and be near the Dominican Republic on Wednesday, according to the Hurricane Center.

Chantal could be near hurricane strength before it reaches Hispaniola, the island shared by the Dominican Republic and Haiti. Both countries are very vulnerable to flooding and landslides from storms, but widespread deforestation and ramshackle housing in Haiti mean even moderate rains pose a significant threat.

U.S. forecasters expect that wind shear and interaction with the mountains of Hispaniola and Cuba will cause Chantal to start weakening in about three days and it is expected to be a tropical depression Friday while over the Bahamas.
