Tropical Storm Chantal forms in Atlantic

Far from Florida at more than 1,000 miles east of the Windward Islands, a disturbance late Sunday developed into Tropical Storm Chantal, forecasters said.

The storm was moving west at a brisk 25 mph with sustained winds of 40 mph, according to the National Hurricane Center.

A tropical storm warning was issued for Barbados, Dominica and Saint Lucia.

According to Bay News 9, forecast models disagree on whether the storm will ever set its sights on Florida.
