TROPICAL STORM CHANTAL
THIS IS THE LAST PUBLIC ADVISORY , 11pm, July 31, 2007
Tropical Storm Chantal was a short-lived tropical storm in the northern Atlantic Ocean in the 2007 Atlantic hurricane season. It developed on July 31 from non-tropical origins between Bermuda and Cape Cod, and with favorable conditions Chantal rapidly attained peak winds of 50 mph (85 km/h). The storm accelerated northeastward over an area of progressively colder water temperatures, and after a decrease in convection the National Hurricane Center ceased issuing advisories as Chantal began undergoing extratropical transition early on August 1. Shortly thereafter, the extratropical remnant crossed over southeastern Newfoundland before tracking into the open waters of the north Atlantic Ocean.
