Tropical Storm Dorian develops in the Atlantic

Tropical Storm Dorian has formed in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Africa.

The National Hurricane Center expects the system to remain at tropical storm strength as it moves toward Puerto Rico over the weekend.

Channel 4 Meteorologist Alexandra Cranford says it bears watching over the next week as it moves across the Atlantic.

"It's still several days before it even reaches the Caribbean." she told WWL First News. "We are going to watch it... plenty of time for anything to happen."

Dorian is expected to be north of Puerto Rico by Monday morning.

Cranford says it's not clear what happens beyond that point.  We should have a better idea next week if the system is a threat to get into the Gulf of Mexico.

As of 10:00am today, Dorian had top sustained winds of 50 miles per hour.
