Tropical Storm Dorian stays strong in the Atlantic

Posted: Updated:
MIAMI (AP/WCSC) -

Tropical Storm Dorian is maintaining its strength as it moves across the open Atlantic, far from land.

Live 5 Meteorologist Bill Walsh said the current tracks have the storm reaching the southern Bahamas on Tuesday as it continues a westward track staying to our south. 

Meteorologists say there's a lot of time to watch the storm and its tracks, and if the storm was to affect us in anyway it would be next weekend.

The storm's maximum sustained winds increased to near 60 mph early Thursday.

Dorian is centered about 1,670  miles (2,687 kilometers) east of the Northern Leeward Islands, off the coast of west Africa, and is moving west-northwest near 18 mph (30 kph).
    
Currently, there are no land threats from the storm.
