Atlantic Hurricane Basin

Aug 24, 2019

Tropical Storm Dorian has formed around 750 miles to the east-southeast of Barbados. Dorian should continue to track west or west-northwest over the next several days and may gradually intensify into a hurricane early next week.

The future movement of Dorian should take it into the Lesser Antilles on Tuesday of next week. It will be at least a tropical storm during that time, possibly even a hurricane. All residents and interests within the Lesser Antilles should monitor the progress of this developing system. There will likely be a period of locally heavy rainfall and gusty winds across the Lesser Antilles Tuesday and Tuesday night as this system crosses the islands and moves into the far eastern Caribbean. It is quite likely that the system becomes a hurricane by the middle to later part of the upcoming week as it moves through the eastern Caribbean.

An area of low pressure, designated as Invest 98L, is centered over South Florida. Invest 98L is drifting northward and will eventually turn northeastward and move off the east-central Florida coast Saturday night or Sunday. This could allow the system to become a tropical depression near or off the east coast of Florida sometime on Sunday or Monday. Further development would then allow it to become a tropical storm off the coast of the Carolinas early this upcoming week. All residents and interests along the southeastern United States coast should monitor the progress of this system.
