Discussion

A cool front will approach the region at mid-week and this will enhance our threat of showers and thunderstorms on Wednesday and Thursday. It’ll turn slightly cooler behind the front late this week and into the weekend, but the a shower or thunderstorm cannot be completely ruled out at this time. Elsewhere, Tropical Storm Chantal is continuing on a west-to-northwest path with 50 mph sustained winds, and it will cross the Lesser Antilles Islands today and move over the Caribbean Sea. It appears that the next move for Chantal will be over the "tough terrain" of Hispaniola island on Wednesday and, if it survives that trek, the storm will likely reach the Bahamas by Friday.
