TropicalIn the tropics, Tropical Storm Don has formed east of the Windward Islands, tropical storm warnings are in effect there. At 5 am Tuesday, Don was located near 11.5 North, 56.2 West, and was moving west at 18 miles per hour. Maximum sustained winds were 50 miles per hour. Some strengthening is possible before Don reaches the Windwards late on Tuesday. Don should remain on a westward course far to our south until wind shear weakens it into a tropical wave late in the week.

Elsewhere in the tropics, the wave in the eastern Atlantic has a medium chance of developing into a depression during the next 5 days.
