DORIAN COMES Closer to the Lesser Antilles

Dorian, the fourth tropical storm in the Atlantic hurricane season, continues to grow as he moves toward the Windward Islands. In the early morning on Monday it is better organized.

Tropical Storm Dorian is in the Atlantic and will be moving to the Caribbean on Monday night. It is centered around 200 miles east-southeast of Barbados and moves west at 14 miles per hour with maximum sustained winds at 60 miles per hour . Dorian is a very compact storm with tropical storm winds that only extend outwards 45 miles .

Local weather: rain, some strong storms expected in central Florida

The storm will be on Wednesday near Puerto Rico and on Thursday in Haiti and the Dominican Republic. The National Hurricane Center announced that hurricane clocks for parts of Puerto Rico may be issued later on Tuesday.

Dorian could continue to intensify and become a category 1 hurricane. The models do not agree on the intensity. They range 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 its name. The system remained at maximum persistent winds between 40 and 50 miles per hour throughout the weekend.

For Barbados, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines there is a tropical storm warning. For Grenada and Martinique a tropical storm clock was issued.

What is the difference? Hurricane, tropical storm and tropical depression

It was expected that the tropics would become busier. After all, we are approaching the heart of the season. As a rule, more than 80% of the Atlantic tropical activities occur between August and October.

HELPFUL LINKS:

Viewers wondered if this system would threaten Florida. It's too far-fetched to know that, but considering that there will be big problems in the Caribbean and then probably go over the high mountains in the Dominican Republic, this system is not likely to be a major tropical threat to Florida.

Channel 9 will continue to monitor the tropics closely and provide you with the latest information on Eyewitness News and our free WFTV Weather App.
