For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:
The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical
Storm Dorian, located several hundred miles east-southeast of
the Lesser Antilles.
1. An elongated area of low pressure centered about 300 miles
south-southwest of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina has changed little
in organization this evening. Environmental conditions appear
conducive for gradual development, and a tropical or subtropical
cyclone is likely to form within the next few days while the system
moves slowly northeastward well offshore of the southeastern United
States. Interests along the coasts of South and North Carolina
should continue to monitor the progress of this system. An Air
Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft is scheduled to investigate
the system on Monday, if necessary.
Formation chance through 48 hours...high...70 percent.
Formation chance through 5 days...high...80 percent.
