The fourth named storm of the Atlantic was the first to form after coming off of the African coast.

The storm began as a tropical depression with sustained winds of 35 miles per hour on July 24th.

Later that day, the storm became officially named Tropical Storm Dorian as it quickly gained strength. Trade winds pushed the storm to the west.

This movement continued through July the 27th, when the storm lost strength and became a Tropical Wave.

However, Dorian would rise again from the proverbial weather ashes on August the 3rd when the remnants regenerated into a Tropical Depression to the east of the Florida coast. However, it moved away from the mainland United States and dissipated again the same day.
