In the tropics, the wave in the eastern Atlantic is now Tropical Depression # 18.  At 5 am, TD # 18 was located near 10.5 North, 36.4 West, about 1860 miles east-northeast of the northern Leeward Islands.  Maximum sustained winds were 35 miles per hour, and TD # 18 was moving west at 15 miles per hour.  TD # 18 is expected to become a hurricane during the next few days.  We’ll continue to keep an eye on it.

Elsewhere, remnants of Peter were about 260 miles north-northwest of San Juan, Puerto Rico at 5 am on Thursday.  Rose is now a remnant low in the open Atlantic.  And the remnants of Odette have a medium chance of redeveloping into a depression during the next few days.
