    Dorian regenerated into a tropical depression early on Saturday morning off the east coast of Florida, but quickly lost tropical characteristics late Saturday afternoon after getting battered by strong wind shear for much of Saturday.

    Dorian will move northeast over the western Atlantic through Monday with no substantial impact to land by the second half of the weekend. Downpours and thunderstorms will move away from the northern Bahamas and eastern Florida through Saturday night.

    Residents and travelers in these areas should be prepared for disruptive blinding downpours, as well as incidents of urban flooding.

    Bathers and boaters should exercise caution from Miami Beach to the Outer Banks, eastward through the northern Bahamas for the balance of this weekend, due to some rough seas and surf.

    Dorian first became a tropical storm on Wed., July 24, 2013. The system was downgraded by the National Hurricane Center on Sat., July 27, 2013 and was classified as a tropical wave or tropical rainstorm. Early on Sat. Aug. 3, Dorian regenerated into a Tropical Depression.

    A cold front will scoop up Dorian and guide it northeastward over the next couple of days. While the cold front will eventually bring some rain to Bermuda early next week, the heaviest rain and squally associated with Dorian will remain well north and west of the island chain.

    During the latest edition of AccuWeather Live, AccuWeather Meteorologist Kristen Connolly talked to Consumer News Director Wendy Perrin of Condé Nast Traveler.
