Melissa is now a post-tropical cyclone.  At midday on Monday, it was 405 miles south-southeast of Cape Race, Newfoundland.  Melissa is expected to dissipate over the northern Atlantic in a day or so.

In the tropics, the wave in the eastern Atlantic is now Tropical Depression # 15.  At 5 am Tuesday, it was located near 15.6 North, 20.9 West, about 210 miles east of the Cape Verde Islands.  TD # 15 had maximum sustained winds of 35 miles per hour and was moving northwest at 12 miles per hour.  It is forecast to become a tropical storm before reaching the islands later on Tuesday.  Regardless, it will bring heavy rain, gusty winds, and the threat of mudslides.

Elsewhere, the wave In the central Atlantic has a low chance of developing before conditions become unfavorable starting on Wednesday.  And the low now over portions of Central America has a low chance of developing after it emerges into the Bay of Campeche in a day or so.  But this system is bringing heavy rain and the threat of mudslides to much of Central America.
