Tropical Storm Dorian forms in eastern Atlantic
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Tropical Storm Dorian has formed off the coast of Africa in the eastern Atlantic.
Midday Wednesday, the storm's maximum are near 50 mph. It's important to note that this system is thousands of miles away from the US, and about 5 days away from the Caribbean Islands.
Right now, waters are relatively cool in the open Atlantic, and there is an abundance of dry air in front of the storm which will make it harder to gain strength.
As always, we'll continue to track the storm for you. The best way to get updates is to visit Hurricanes 101. You can also get updates on the StormTrack 3 Mobile App.
