Tropical Storm Dorian Weakens in Atlantic, Poses No Threat to Land

By Michael Mullins   |   Friday, 26 Jul 2013 08:25 AM

Tropical Storm Dorian is unlikely to pose any land threat as it becomes less and less organized while making its way across the Atlantic and continues to weaken in strength.

Presently moving west-northwest at about 20 mph, the tropical storm is approximately 1,425 miles away from the Caribbean’s Leeward Islands. As of Friday, Dorian had maximum sustained winds of 50 miles per hour, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center.

On Wednesday, the storm's center had been located about 615 miles west of the Cape Verde Island off the coast of west African.

Dorian is the fourth tropical storm to form this season, the Houston Chronicle notes, and has formed nearly a month before such storms are typically seen in the Atlantic Ocean.

Prior to Tropical Storm Dorian’s breaking up over the Atlantic, the storm had posed a potential risk to the Caribbean islands, Bahamas and possibly the southern United States if it had held together.

Meanwhile in the Pacific Ocean, Tropical Storm Flossie has strengthened somewhat in recent days.

That storm's maximum sustained winds are similarly near 50 mph, and Flossie is centered about 1,640 miles (2,640 kilometers) east of Hilo, Hawaii, is moving west at a speed of about 18 miles per hour, the Associated Press reported.

Neither Tropical Storm Dorian nor Tropical Storm Flossie pose any land threat at the moment.
