At 11:00 am today, the center of Tropical Storm Dorian was located near latitude 12.3
North, longitude 57.7 West, or about 540 miles southeast of St. Maarten. Dorian is moving toward the west-northwest near 14 mph (22 km/h) and this motion is expected to continue
through Tuesday night, followed by a turn toward the northwest on Wednesday.
On the forecast track, the center of Dorian is expected to be near the Windward Islands late today and tonight, and move into the eastern Caribbean Sea on Tuesday.
The center of Tropical Storm Dorian is projected to pass about 200 miles south of St. Maarten early Wednesday, and thus currently poses no immediate threat.
Maximum sustained winds are near 60 mph (95 km/h) with higher gusts.
Some strengthening is forecast during the next few days. Dorian could be near hurricane strength when it passes through the Windward Islands on Tuesday and is expected to be a
hurricane when it moves near Puerto Rico and eastern Hispaniola.
The estimated minimum central pressure is 1002 mb (29.59 inches).
Meteorological Department St. Maarten will continue to monitor Tropical Storm Dorian and issue special weather bulletins.
