While Dorian soaks the Bahamas, South Florida will only get a glancing blow from the once-tropical storm for the start of August.
Dorian will continue to track across the Bahamas through Friday, in a southeast to northwest fashion, accompanied by numerous drenching showers and thunderstorms.
Some of the downpours could lead to localized flash flooding in poor drainage and low-lying areas. Many more downpours will ruin outdoor activities.
Despite the downpour threat, AccuWeather.com meteorologists are no longer concerned that Dorian will restrengthen into a tropical depression or storm as it travels through the Bahamas.
Through Friday, Dorian should track close enough to South Florida to enhance drenching shower and thunderstorm activity slightly.
Residents and beachgoers may experience more frequent disruptions to sunbathing, swimming and other outdoor plans.
Any downpours threaten to slow down motorists, including those on Interstates 75 and 95, by reducing visibility. The heaviest downpours will heighten the risk of vehicles hydroplaning at highway speeds.
Dorian will give only a glancing blow to South Florida since it is not expected to cross the state.
Later Friday and through this weekend, the former tropical storm will get steered off to the northeast and away from the rest of the Southeast U.S.
In the wake of Dorian, the rest of the Atlantic Basin looks to remain free of another tropical depression or storm through at least this weekend.
