Dorian's latest title

DORIAN TRANSFORMS THE LESS ANTILLES

Dorian, the fourth tropical storm in the Atlantic hurricane season, is trying to organize better. Maximum sustained winds still at 60 miles per hour as it is approximately 60 miles southeast of Barbados. Dorian is expected to cross the Lesser Antilles tonight and enter the Caribbean, where there is a very short window of opportunity to intensify until the first half of the day on Tuesday and then interact with the wind shear that the system really does can damage.

On Barbados and the surrounding islands under the wind could fall in some places up to 10 inches of rain. The winds will increase as Dorian is likely to become a hurricane when crossing the Lesser Antilles.

Dorian is a very compact storm with tropical storm winds that extend only outward 45 miles .

A tropical storm watch has been issued for Puerto Rico as the storm is expected to move south and much rain will fall over the island.

DORIAN'S TRACK

The storm will be near Puerto Rico on Wednesday. Under the 5:00 pm Monday notice, the storm is expected to pass approximately [1945905] 20 miles southwest of Boqueron, Puerto Rico, as a Category 1 hurricane. The route continues to move north, placing Dorian directly over the Mona Passage ( between Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic on Thursday morning.

[19659004] DORIAN'S INTENSITY

[19659004]

Models are far from consensus on intensity, varying from a tropical storm to a Category 3 hurricane on Thursday. This tells us that we need to focus on what we know about conditions in the Caribbean. The system is surrounded by very dry air. This dry air has prevented the storm from gaining strength since it was named over the weekend. The system remained at maximum sustained winds between 40 and 50 miles per hour throughout the weekend. This system will experience a lot of wind shear when entering the Caribbean, which will further limit its strength and structure.

THREATENS DORIAN FLORIDA?

Viewers wondered if this system would threaten Florida. To know that, it's too far-fetched, but considering that there will be big problems in the Caribbean and then get over the high mountains in the Dominican Republic, this system is probably not a big tropical threat to Florida. The error rate at this distance is over 250 miles .
