Hurricane Center: Dorian still not totally gone

August 2, 2013 

A trough of low pressure associated with the remnants of Tropical Storm Dorian is producing showers between the northwestern Bahamas and the Florida East Coast, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Conditions are "favorable for slight development" Friday and early Saturday as it approaches the Florida east coast, the Hurricane Center said at 2 p.m. EDT Friday.

The system -- which the Hurricane Center said has a 30 percent chance of re-developing into a tropical storm in the next five days -- is expected to move toward the north-northeast and become associated with a frontal trough offshore of the eastern United States, the Hurricane Center said.

Tropical Storm Dorian developed last week in the mid-Atlantic but weakened as it made its way westward.
