Forecasters watching remnants of Dorian off South Florida

Cmorgan@MiamiHerald.comAugust 1, 2013 

The remnants of Dorian — that tropical storm you thought was dead — showed some faint signs of life over the Bahamas on Thursday.

It was enough of a stirring to bump up rain chances for much of southeastern Florida on Friday and to attract the attention of the National Hurricane Center. But forecasters gave the disorganized mass of storms only a 20 percent change of regenerating over the next few days.

The National Weather Service’s Miami office predicted a 50 percent chance of rain for much of the region from scattered thunderstorms, some that could bring gusty winds to coastal areas and the northern Bahamas. The disturbance is expected to continue skirting the state before being swept up by an approaching front.
