As of 1000 hours CDT, 24 July 2013, NWS/NHC is tracking
one system in the Atlantic-Caribbean-Gulf of Mexico basin, Tropical Storm


The accompanying graphic shows the current location and
track model for this system.


DORIAN is located at 16.0N and 35.9W, about 1800 miles
east of the Northern Leeward Islands.  Maximum sustained winds are
currently at 60 mph with higher gust. DORIAN is moving WNW at 17 mph and
is expected to continue that track today, followed by a gradual turn to the
west on Friday.  NHC stated that some fluctuation in strength is likely to
occur during the next 48 hours.  Tropical storm force winds currently
extend outward up to 60 miles from the center.  The estimated minimum
central pressure is at 999MB.


Based on current data, if this system survives the
upcoming environmental conditions and tracks straight toward Louisiana, it is
still at least 8 or 9 days from any potential impact on Louisiana.
