Tropical Depression 26 is currently 75 miles south-southwest of Kingston, Jamaica. The system itself moving west-northwest at 9 mph with maximum gusts of 45 mph.

Tropical Storm 25, now formally known as Gamma, continues its trek east moving at 2 mph. The storm is expected to veer southwest and meander around the southern portion of the Gulf of Mexico into the start of next week.
