Tropical Storm Don dissipated into an open wave in the southeastern Caribbean Sea late Tuesday -- just two days after claiming Tropical Storm status in the Atlantic Ocean.While the storm did not have a closed center Tuesday, gusty winds and thunderstorms with locally heavy showers were seen affecting portions of the Windward islands Monday night into Tuesday.Don was the fourth named storm in the Atlantic this 2017 season, and its remnants are expected to generate some intense thunderstorms over portions of northeast Venezuela during the next 24 to 48 hours. Tropical Storm Don was downgraded to a tropical depression Tuesday evening after crossing strong wind shear and dry mid-level air in the Atlantic.What's next: A warmer than average tropical Atlantic ready to fuel more storms?Don is currently fueled by warm sea surface temperatures with values in the +28oC mark. This month of July, the Atlantic continues to show warmer than average sea surface temperature anomalies, although not as high as those observed other years when hurricane activity was more frequent.Below: SST anomalies Atlantic OceanSea surface temperatures 1 to 2oC above normal in some areas could help develop tropical storms in the region during the coming months. However, other essential ingredients like wind shear and mid-level dry air could limit the development as most storms track east to west across the ocean.Below: Sea Surface TemperaturesAfter Don, eyes are now set on another low pressure center located about 1000 miles west-southwest of the Cape Verde Islands. Models are anticipating some slow development around this system between Wednesday and Friday as it continues to move west-northwest at about 15 miles per hour. Beyond the weekend, it looks like dry air advection into the region and an increase in wind shear could mean unfavorable atmospheric conditions for further development.

At the halfway point of the year, 2017 remains the second-hottest year to date — a surprise given the demise of the El Niño that helped boost temperatures to record levels last year.
