The National Hurricane Center has released updated advisories and forecast maps for Tropical Storm Chantal, which formed in the Atlantic over the weekend.

The forecast map above is the projected track of the storm over the next five days, and includes the areas currently under storm watches and warnings. The "cone of uncertainty" on the map indicates the possible locations of the storm's center over time, not the total size of the storm or the extent of the storm's impact.

According to the latest advisory, as of 10 a.m. Wednesday the storm had maximum sustained winds of 45 mph, and is moving west at 29 mph.

The storm is tracking farther west than expected earlier this week, but is expected to weaken to a Tropical Depression by Thursday morning.
