Tropical storm watch discontinued for St. Lucia

NHC: At 200 PM AST (1800 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Don was located near latitude 11.5 North, longitude 58.7 West. Don is moving toward the west near 20 mph (31 km/h).

This general motion is expected through Wednesday. On the forecast track, the center of Don will move across the Windward Islands later today or tonight, and then move westward across the southeastern Caribbean Sea on Wednesday.

The government of Saint Lucia has discontinued the tropical storm watch for the island. However, warnings and watches are still in effect for the following countries:

Tropical Storm warnings:

  • Grenada
  • St. Vincent and the Grenadines

Tropical Storm watch

  • Bonaire

Maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph (65 km/h) with higher gusts. Little change in strength is forecast before Don moves through the Windward Islands. The tropical storm is forecast to degenerate into a trough of low pressure over the southeastern Caribbean late Wednesday or Wednesday night.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 35 miles (55 km) from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1011 mb (29.86 inches).
