Tropical Storm Dorian was named earlier this morning and now the National Hurricane Center (NHC) is watching a disturbance east of Bermuda for possible tropical development.

The system east of Bermuda is named Invest 99 and the computer models take the disturbance to the northwest before turning around towards the north and northeast. While it may not pose much of a threat to the United States, it could brush by Nova Scotia in the coming days.

Tropical Storm Dorian is expected to move west-northwest for the next several days and it does not pose a threat to any landmass for quite a while. The storm may eventually move toward or into the Bahamas next week, but there is still plenty of time for things to change with that forecast.

Closer to the U.S., a low pressure system is forecast to develop off the mid-Atlantic coast on Thursday. As the low moves north on Friday, it may bring some locally heavy rain to portions of eastern New England. At this time, most of the rain should miss Connecticut, but some drizzle and scattered showers remain in the forecast here for both Thursday and Friday. The low does not appear tropical, but with a quasi-warm core, it's may develop at least some sub-tropical characteristics.

Stay tuned to, Connecticut's Hurricane Headquarters, for more details.
