Tropical Storm Rafael has prompted tropical Storm warnings for several locations in the eastern Caribbean today. This includes the United States and British Virgin Islands. Rafael is a weaker tropical storm, with maximum sustained winds of 40 mph. The system is centered about 200 miles south-southeast of St. Croix. The latest motion was north-northwest and that track should continue through early next week. The tropical system Patty has dissipated near the Bahamas and this system is no longer a depression.
