Tropical storm Dorian continues across the Atlantic Ocean with maximum sustained winds of 60 miles per hour. Winds are slightly lower than they were yesterday, and the storm is becoming a little less organized. The weakening is due to the dry air the storm is passing through, cooler ocean waters, and its fast movement. In the next five days, the storm will continue to the west-northwest at 20 miles per hour and maintain tropical storm strength. Dorian will approach the island of Hispaniola, the Bahamas, and Cuba by Wednesday morning. It is still too far out to determine whether this storm will pose a threat to our local area or to Florida. The Storm Team will continue to monitor this system.
