Chantal is expected to gain strength from a tropical depression (D) with winds less than 39 mph to a storm (S) that has winds ranging from 39 to 73 mph.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Hurricane Center in Miami has issued a Public Advisory for Tropical Storm Chantal.

In a statement, the center said, “Chantal is charging eastward across the North Atlantic.” As of 5 a.m. eastern, the storm was about 445 miles south of Cape Race, Newfoundland, moving east at 22 mph. A turn toward the southeast with a decrease in forward speed is expected tomorrow and experts expect the storm to slow and turn to the south on Friday.
