In the tropics, Peter and Rose are both tropical depressions.  At 5 am, TD Peter was located near 21.5 North, 66.1 West, about 215 miles north of San Juan, Puerto Rico.  Maximum sustained winds were 35 miles per hour, and Peter was moving northwest at 12 miles per hour.  And Tropical Depression Rose remains in the far eastern Atlantic.  At 5 am, TD Rose was located near 23.4 North, 38.4 West, and was moving northwest at 8 miles per hour.  Maximum sustained winds were 35 miles per hour, but Rose is expected to dissipate on Friday.

Elsewhere, the remnants of Odette have a medium chance of redeveloping into a depression.  And we continue to watch the wave making its way through the eastern Atlantic.  While it doesn’t yet have a well-defined center, this feature is expected to become a tropical depression in the next day or two.
