Weather forecasters were keeping a close eye on Tropical Storm Dorian, the fourth named Atlantic storm of the season, as it progressed across the Atlantic tracking straight for the Caribbean.

The storm developed over the far eastern Atlantic Ocean, southwest of the Cape Verde Islands early Wednesday morning. Forecasters revealed that the storm's maximum sustained winds increased to near 60 mph.

Dorian will continue tracking west-northwest over the next several days on the south side of the Bermuda-Azores high, and will remain over open waters through much of the upcoming weekend.

It is traveling west-northwest near 17 mph and will not pose a threat to land for several days as it moves across the middle of the Atlantic.

The hurricane center is monitoring a low-pressure area about 300 miles east of Bermuda.
