Tropical Storm Don forms east of Windward Islands

The weather advisory issued by the National Hurricane Centre in Miami states that Tropical storm conditions are expected in the warning area by late afternoon and Tuesday night. Or even appear on television, which from what we hear Tropical Storm Don has very little time to watch, anyway.

Because Don is "compact", its intensity can change significantly, Hurricane Center forecasters said.

Even in its weakened state, Don is expected to dump heavy rain on the Windward Islands when it crosses later tonight, increasing the risk of risky mudslides.

The National Hurricane Center forecasts that some gradual development of this system is possible through mid-week while it moves toward the west-northwest or northwest at 10 to 15 miles per hour. It is expected to grow to a tropical storm in the next few days, but weaken to a post-tropical low by the end of the week as it moves west.

In other words, Hilary might soon be opposite Tropical Storm Don.

PUBG Adding First-Person Servers In Its Next Update
The PUBG subreddit is pretty ecstatic about the news, as first-person servers have been high on their wish-list for some time now. First person in PUBG is a little more daunting than third person as the view point constrains what you can see, naturally.

The Associated Press' Seth Borenstein asked former National Hurricane Center director Max Mayfield about the coincidental name, which had been chosen in 2006.

Don is now the fourth storm of 2017 to materialize in the Atlantic Basin.

Maximum sustained winds are still near 50 miles per hour (85 km/h) with higher gusts.

A small and disorganized tropical storm forms in the Atlantic. The storm is expected to gain forward speed through Wednesday.

Don was moving west at 17 miles per hour and was forecast to continue on that track through Wednesday. It now has a 40% chance to become a tropical depression in the next five days.
