Dorian Dead, No Threat, Just Wet

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Tropical Storm Dorian is no longer Tropical Storm Dorian. The storm — like so much in Boca — was flash over substance. (We jest).

Here's the final update from the National Hurricane Center.

REMNANTS OF DORIAN DISCUSSION NUMBER 15

NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL AL042013

500 PM AST SAT JUL 27 2013

ASCAT AMBIGUITY DATA FROM A FEW HOURS AGO INDICATED THAT DORIAN NO

LONGER HAD A CLOSED SURFACE CIRCULATION. THUS...THE TROPICAL

CYCLONE HAS SUCCUMBED TO THE HARSH ENVIRONMENT AND HAS DEGENERATED

INTO A TROPICAL WAVE. THE MAXIMUM WIND SPEED IS STILL ABOUT 35 KT

ACCORDING TO THE ASCAT PASS. REGENERATION OF THIS SYSTEM IS

UNLIKELY DUE TO PERSISTENT SOUTHWESTERLY SHEAR AND VERY DRY AIR IN

THE MID-LEVELS OF THE ATMOSPHERE. THE REMNANTS OF DORIAN SHOULD

PASS NORTH OF THE LEEWARD ISLANDS AND PUERTO RICO...AND BE IN THE

VICINITY OF THE SOUTHEASTERN BAHAMAS IN 2-3 DAYS.

AN AIR FORCE RESERVE HURRICANE HUNTER PLANE IS SCHEDULED TO

INVESTIGATE THE WAVE TOMORROW...IF NECESSARY.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON THIS SYSTEM CAN BE FOUND IN HIGH SEAS
