DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 500 AM AST (0900 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Dorian was
located near latitude 11.9 North, longitude 56.4 West. Dorian is
moving toward the west near 14 mph (22 km/h). A turn toward the
west-northwest is expected later today, with this motion continuing
through Tuesday night.  On the forecast track, the center of Dorian
is expected to be near the Windward Islands late today and tonight
and move into the eastern Caribbean Sea on Tuesday.

Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 60 mph (95 km/h) with
higher gusts. Slow strengthening is forecast during the next few
days, and Dorian could be near hurricane strength on Tuesday and
and Wednesday while it is over the eastern Caribbean Sea.

Dorian is a small tropical cyclone.  Tropical-storm-force winds
extend outward up to 45 miles (75 km) from the center.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1002 mb (29.59 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
RAINFALL:  Dorian is expected to produce total rain accumulations of
2 to 4 inches in Barbados, the Windward Islands, and Dominica
through Tuesday.  Isolated maximum amounts of 6 inches are possible
in Barbados and the Windward Islands.

WIND:  Tropical storm conditions are likely in the warning area by
late today.  Tropical storm conditions are possible within the
watch area by tonight or Tuesday.

SURF:  Swells generated by Dorian will be affecting portions of the
Lesser Antilles by late today. These swells could cause life-
threatening surf and rip current conditions.  Please consult
products from your local weather office.
