Tropical storm Chantal is in the Caribbean north of Venezuela and is expected to turn northwest and pass over the eastern tip of Cuba in the next few days.
The storm might bring some additional instability to Costa Rica, but if it follows the track estimated by the U.S. Nacional Hurricane Center, the storm has the capacity to disrupt air traffic from Florida and points north.
The storm is expected to be just off the Florida coast last Saturday. Warnings are in effect for Puerto Rico, Haiti and the Dominican Republic as well as other islands.
The Instituto Meteorológico Nacional in Costa Rica said that there probably will be more rain along the Caribbean coast and in the northern zone today with possible afternoon thunderstorms in the Central Valley and on the Pacific coast.
