In the tropics, Don is now a subtropical depression in the middle of the Atlantic.  At 5 am, Don was about 955 miles west of the Azores and had maximum sustained winds of 35 miles per hour.  It was moving east at 9 miles per hour.  Don continues to loop around and is now forecast to strengthen a bit and transition into a fully tropical system — but it will remain far from land.  Elsewhere in the tropical Atlantic, it’s quiet right now.
