Two tropical storms on radar

Tropical Storm FAY is out in the central subtropical Atlantic near 34.3N, 54.0W. Maximum sustained winds are down little as the system moves east at 22 knots towards a strong frontal system which will degrade the storm further over the next 12 hours.

Tropical storm GONZALO has just passed Antigua. Maximum sustained winds have increased to 55 knots. Movement is west to west-nor'west at 10 knots. This could become a hurricane prior to moving over the Virgin Islands late tonight and early on Tuesday morning.

Disturbance forty seven is now centred around 600 miles north east of the Amazon and is moving west at 5 knot. Development chances have decreased since yesterday. It will turn to the northwest and north soon, and it should dissipate in 3 to 4 days as it meets the extratropical remnants of FAY over the east-central Atlantic. Storm conditions at sea otherwise stand easy.
