Tropics:   The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical Storm Patty.  Here are the latest stats:

415 KM NE OF THE CENTRAL BAHAMAS
MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS...40 MPH...65 KM/H
PRESENT MOVEMENT...STATIONARY
MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE...1007 MB...29.74 INCHES

Patty is expected to weaken and dissipate to a depression on Friday.

We are also watching a large area of low pressure about 75 miles east southeast of Barbados that is becoming better defined.  Environmental conditions appear conducive for gradual development  over the next couple of days.  This system has a 70 percent chance of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours as it moves northwestward at 10 to 15 miles per hour.
