Odette is now a post-tropical storm that’s bringing strong winds and heavy rain to Newfoundland.  Instead, we now have Tropical Storm Peter and Tropical Depression # 17.

Tropical Storm Peter formed in the central Atlantic overnight.  At 5 am Sunday, Peter was located near 18.0 North, 53.5 West, about 630 miles east of the northern Leeward Islands.  Maximum sustained winds were 40 miles per hour, and Peter was moving northwest at 15 miles per hour.  While there are no watches or warnings yet, swells from Peter will create rough surf and dangerous rip currents in the northern Leeward Islands, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands Sunday night and Monday.  We’ll keep an eye on it, but so far, computer models indicate that Peter will remain well east of the Bahamas and the U.S. Atlantic coast.

Tropical Depression # 17 formed in the eastern Atlantic early on Sunday.  At 5 am, TD # 17 was located near 11.8 North, 28.2 West, abut 330 miles southwest of the Cape Verde Islands.  Maximum sustained winds were 35 miles per hour, and TD # 17 was moving north-northwest at 14 miles per hour.  TD #17 could become a short-lived tropical storm on Sunday or Monday, but after that, it will weaken.
