Tropical Storm Dorian formed over the weekend, and it’s something that we need to keep an eye on. Although it does appear that it will continue tracking to the south of St. John and the entire US Virgin Islands.
According to the National Hurricane Center’s 8 a.m. update this morning, Tropical Storm Dorian has maximum sustained winds of up to 60 miles per hour. No watches or warnings have been issued for the USVI at this point. The National Hurricane Center stated “while it is too soon to determine the specific time or magnitude of possible direct impacts in Puerto Rico, the Virgin Island or Hispaniola, interests in those areas should monitor the progress of Dorian and watches could be required later today.”
As you can see below, all of the Monday morning spaghetti models have Dorian tracking south of St. John.
