We’re still keeping our eyes on the Atlantic as Tropical Storm Dorian tracks on a path towards populated areas like Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and the Bahamas.
As of Tuesday at 12 PM, Dorian still remains a tropical storm packing sustained winds of 50 MPH passing over a few of the Caribbean islands like St. Lucia and Dominica. Below is a GIF of Dorian’s current location.
As far as the track of Dorian, a WNW path at 13 MPH is expected. By early Thursday morning, Dorian is expected to pass over the western coast of the Dominican Republic still at a Tropical Storm. We can’t be certain where Dorian’s track will continue because of how much time we have to see where it will end, but Dorian could impact the western coast of Florida as early as Sunday morning.
Dorian still has a lot of energy from the warm Caribbean waters but Dorian is still expected to remain at Tropical Storm level although Hurricane conditions can not be completely ruled out considering how much time Dorian has left.
Heavy rain is expected for the Caribbean Islands along with strong winds. We will continue to monitor Dorian and bring you the latest.
