Tropical Storm Forms In Eastern Atlantic

MIAMI (July 24, 2013)--Tropical Storm Dorian has formed in the eastern Atlantic, but remains far from land, forecasters said Wednesday.

The storm's maximum sustained winds Wednesday were near 50 miles per hour and Dorian was moving quickly across the Atlantic at 21 miles per hour, the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said.

The storm was centered about 410 miles west-southwest of the Cape Verde Islands, off the coast of West Africa.

Dorian could get a bit stronger Wednesday, though it is forecast to weaken some on Thursday as it moves over cooler water.
