Dorian's remains still on hurricane center's radar

Sun Sentinel

Would you believe the National Hurricane Center is still monitoring Tropical Storm Dorian - or, at least, what's left of it?

In its 2 p.m. tropical weather outlook on Thursday, the center gave the system's remnants a 20 percent chance of redeveloping over the next two days.

Currently, those remnants are a mishmash of clouds and storms over the northwestern Bahamas.

Although there's no sign of a close circulation, the storms became more concentrated today, prompting the system to reappear on the hurricane center's radar.

After emerging in the eastern Atlantic on July 24, Dorian briefly had Florida on its toes last week, as it was at one point predicted to approach the state at near hurricane strength.

It instead got ripped apart by wind shear and dry air.

Over the next few days, the system is expected to move north and east, get swallowed by a low-pressure area and finally disappear.

In the meantime, moisture from the system has increased the chance of rain to 50 percent on Friday in South Florida and to 40 percent on Saturday in Central Florida.
