Tropical Update 2013: TS Dorian Forms, Possible Eventual Threat To Lesser Antilles

By: hurricaneben , 4:52 PM GMT on July 24, 2013

Tropical Storm Dorian has formed overnight and winds are now around 50 MPH. Somw additional strengthening is expected in the next 24 hours or so before it runs into cooler waters but don't think this should completely tear it apart. NHC forecasts this to hold onto TS strength til the point it nears the Northern Lesser Antilles by the weekend and if it does manage to hold on for that long, it might become something to watch for the Lower 48 and The Bahamas into next week because it will run into much more favorable conditions by that time. So it's not an imminent threat to land but something to keep a close eye on for those in the NE Caribbean and potentially the CONUS.
