In the Tropics:

Tropical Storm Don is strengthening over the central Atlantic Ocean. Moving to the west at 7mph with maximum sustained winds of 50mph, Don will turn northwest by the weekend doing a little more strengthening along the way. By next week, the storm will weaken over the cooler waters.

In the eastern Tropical Atlantic, cloudiness and showers continue a few hundred miles south of the Cabo Verde Islands in association with a tropical wave. While dry air should prevent significant organization during the next few days, environmental conditions could become more conducive for some development by the weekend while the wave moves westward at about 20 mph.
