Bulletin # 2

Date: Tuesday 18th of July 2017

ISSUED AT: 12:00 HRS

At 11 AM today, Tuesday 18th July, 2017, Tropical storm Don was located at approximately 250 km SE of Barbados, moving West at 31 km/hr.

Tropical storm Don is expected to enter the Caribbean as a storm, but weaken gradually and become a
tropical wave before reaching Aruba.

No direct impacts expected from tropical storm Don to Aruba since it will be a tropical wave again near Aruba. Models hint that most active weather and strongest winds related to the then projected remnants of tropical storm Don will stay north of Aruba between Wednesday evening through the overnight hours of Thursday. However, moist and unstable air induced by this system will likely produce some shower activity over the local region. Please monitor the products issued by the Meteorological Service Aruba for further information pertaining to marine and weather conditions.
