Published: Wednesday, July 24, 2013 at 06:05 PM.

·         Regardless of regeneration Dorian’s remnants are expected to bring rainfall and gusty winds to South Florida on Thursday and Friday.

·         High rip current risks along the Atlantic Coast will more than likely occur throughout the latter part of the week.

·         All interests in Florida should monitor the system.

Summary as of Thursday, July 25 at 5 p.m.:

·          At 5 p.m., Tropical Storm Dorian was located at 16.5°N and 37.8°W which is approximately 1670 miles east of the Leeward Islands.

·         Maximum sustained winds are now at 60 mph with higher gusts. Some slight strengthening is possible over the next 5 days as Dorian moves over warmer waters. Drier air, however, will somewhat limit strengthening.

·         Dorian is moving to the west-northwest at 18 mph and this motion is forecast to continue over the next couple of days. Computer models are in general agreement and take Dorian west-northwest toward north of the Leeward Islands.
