Tropical Storm Dorian update

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

·         There is, however, a 30 percent chance that Dorian could become a hurricane over the next 5 days.

·         The official forecast from the National Hurricane Center keeps Dorian moving toward the west-northwest to north of Haiti while maintaining tropical storm status for the next 5 days.

·         Elsewhere, an area of low pressure designated as Invest 99L was located a few hundred miles northeast of Bermuda. Conditions are becoming less favorable for development as this system moves toward the north at 15 to 20 mph.

·         The National Hurricane Center is indicating that this system has a low chance (10%) of becoming a tropical cyclone in the next 48 hours. The next name on the Atlantic hurricane list is Erin.

Florida Outlook

·         Tropical Storm Dorian is in the Central Atlantic, and no part of Florida is within the 5 day error cone. Interests in Florida should continue to monitor the tropics over the next few days.

·         Invest 99L is not expected to bring any impacts to Florida at this time.
