Tropical Wave Chantel – Day 4

Position: 16.5N 73.7W [ 4PM CDT 2100 UTC].
Movement: West [270°] near 23 mph [37 kph].
Maximum sustained winds: 45 mph [ 75 kph].
Wind Gusts: 55 mph [ 90 kph].
Minimum central pressure: 1012 mb.

Currently about 230 miles [ 370 km] East-Southeast of Kingston, Jamaica.

An aircraft is on the way to find out what is going on with Chantal because current readings indicate that it devolved into a tropical wave overnight.

Update 10AM: It is still a tropical storm, but another strange one, and it has missed the turn to the Northwest, so now it is headed towards Jamaica or Cuba.

Update 4 PM: Chantal has devolved into a tropical wave, and all watches and warnings have been discontinued. This is the final advisory.
