Weather: What's that low going to do?

This is what boaters are talking about here in St.Martin today... Is this low going to develop into a Tropical Storm or more?

We know a family who hasn't been sailing yet but they have been working on their boat for over a year here in SXM. They've heard about this system and they plan to head south on Tuesday. I sure hope this thing just fizzles out. I'm worried that they are running away before they have done any sea trials or have any experience with their boat. Plus, they are not familiar with down-island ports yet and all that it entails...

Also, is down island the place you want to head to? Look at these computer models:

We are going to stay put for the moment and keep an eye on things before making hasty decisions.

Hoping for a quiet and uneventful summer, weatherwise...
