SPECIAL FEATURE: At 11:00 am today, the center of Tropical Storm Dorian was located about 825 miles southeast of St. Maarten. On the forecast track, Dorian is expected to be near the central Lesser Antilles late Monday or early Tuesday. However, the center of Tropical Storm Dorian is projected to pass about 200 miles south of St. Maarten early Wednesday, and thus currently poses no immediate threat.Maximum sustained winds remain near 40 mph (65 km/h) with higher gusts. Some strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours, and Dorian could be near hurricane strength by Tuesday over the eastern Caribbean Sea.
Meteorological Department St. Maarten will continue to monitor Tropical Storm Dorian and issue special weather bulletins.
OUTLOOK through Tuesday midday: Fair to partly cloudy.
