Goodbye Chantal

Tropical Storm Chantal... here yesterday and gone today. As expected, Chantal was a short lived storm. Since it has tracked into the cooler waters of the northern Atlantic, the system is no longer considered to be tropical and is no longer being tracked by the National Hurricane Center.

Elsewhere today, we'll keep an eye on a tropical wave that could slowly develop as it approaches the Windward Islands.

The National Hurricane Center has scheduled a hurricane hunter aircraft to investigate this system this afternoon if necessary. We'll keep you posted with our tropical updates at :21 after the hour on News 14 Carolina.

Back at home, we are settling into a hot and dry weather pattern with temperatures climbing toward the mid 90s by the end of the week. The news is not good for the drought conditions across North Carolina. We don't see any significant rain chances in our future for the next week.
