The tropical storm has maximum sustained winds of 45 mph with some higher gusts. Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 25 miles from the center.

Some strengthening is possible through Tuesday while Don approaches the Windward Islands.  Weakening is expected on Wednesday when Don moves through the southeastern Caribbean Sea.

  • Grenada
  • Vincent and the Grenadines

A Tropical Storm Watch is in effect for:

  • Barbados

Don is expected to produce total rain accumulations of 2 to 4 inches across the Windward Islands through Wednesday morning.
