The National Hurricane Center is responsible for observing and forecasting tropical systems.

Even after Don weakens after passing over the Lesser Antilles, enhanced downpours could still survive and raise the risk for localized flooding in Central America, likely between Nicaragua and Belize, later this week. Tropical Storm Don will move through the southern Windward Islands, bringing strong winds and rain to Barbados, St. Lucia, St. Vincent, and Grenada. Maximum sustained winds were around 40 miles per hour and additional strengthening is forecast as the storm moves over warmer water during the next couple of days.

A watch was up for Bonaire.

Forecasts expect the storm to continue moving westward through the Windward Islands and into the Caribbean Sea Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.

What it is not anticipated to pick up is a big burst of strength.

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

"Advisories are being maintained for now pending another reconnaissance aircraft mission later today", forecasters wrote.

Don, a "small" and weak storm in the Atlantic, is getting attention for its name, rather than for what damage it might cause.

We will continue to keep an Eye on the Tropics and monitor the waves' development.

Hilary will join a crowded eastern Pacific basin, which already features Tropical Storm Greg and Hurricane Fernanda.

This system is forecast to move west and affect the Windward Islands with heavy rain and gusty winds.

A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for. The World Meteorological Organization has a committee in six ocean regions, each of which come up with a list of storm names every six years.

This is the second time there's been a Tropical Storm Don in the Atlantic - 2011's Don fizzled out before it hit land.
