In the tropics, the wave entering the eastern Caribbean has a high chance of becoming a depression as it moves in the direction of Central America.  The wave is currently bringing heavy rain and gusty winds to portions of the Windward Islands, coastal Venezuela, Aruba, Bonaire, and Curacao.

Tropical Depression # 12 is on its way to becoming a remnant low in the middle of the Atlantic.  At 5 am, TD # 12 was about 635 miles west-northwest of the Cape Verde Islands.  Maximum sustained winds were 35 miles per hour, and TD # 12 was moving west-northwest at 13 miles per hour.
