The National Hurricane Center says Tropical Storm Don has formed in the Atlantic Ocean.

An Air Force Reserve crew found the storm small and well-defined, but not particularly well-organized. Right now, the storm is located near Barbados and has weakened significantly, and is barely still qualified as a tropical storm. Little change in strength is forecast for Don during the next 48 hours.

Don, which is no threat to the US, is expected to dissipate mid-week but could bring strong wind and heavy rain to the islands today. It was centered about 1,460 miles (2,3500 kilometers) east of Hilo, Hawaii, with maximum sustained winds of 100 mph (155 kph) and was moving to the northwest at 9 mph (15 kph).

Once it enters the Caribbean, NHC forecasts predict that strong upper-level wind shear will weaken the storm from a tropical system and cause it to dissipate by the end of the week.

This week meteorologists are monitoring Tropical Storm Don, a weather event that was in no way named after anyone real or in the news.

The National Hurricane Center issued a public advisory on Don at 11 a.m. Tuesday.

A tropical storm warning means tropical storm conditions - with sustained winds in excess of 40 mph - are expected somewhere within the warned area within the next 24-to-36 hours.

June 19, 2017 - Tropical Storm Bret forms about 125 miles southeast of Trinidad.

Forecasters are also keeping an eye on a second tropical wave several hundred miles west of the Cabo Verde Islands off the African coast.

By Wednesday afternoon, the storm's center is expected to be in line with Caracas, Venezuela.

Spaghetti models are in general agreement that the Invest 96L's projected path will move in a west-northwesterly direction towards the Bahamas through Sunday.
