SPECIAL FEATURES: 
1. At 5:00 PM (2100 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Peter was located near latitude 20.0 North, longitude 61.8 West, or approximately 160 miles northeast of St. Maarten. Peter is moving toward the west northwest at 14 mph with maximum sustained winds near 50 mph (85 km/h), with higher gusts.  

On the forecast track, Peter is forecast to pass about 155 miles north northeast of St. Maarten within the next few hours. The public is hereby urged to closely monitor its progress.   

  1. Tropical Storm Rose remains over the eastern tropical Atlantic and poses no threat to St. Maarten.
  1. A tropical wave located in the far eastern Atlantic is showing signs of development. Therefore, a tropical depression is likely to form by Thursday or Friday while the system moves westward at 10 to 15 mph across the eastern and central tropical Atlantic Ocean.

The Meteorological Department of St. Maarten will continue to monitor this system and update the public accordingly. 

OUTLOOK through Wednesday evening: Partly cloudy to cloudy with isolated showers.
