ORLANDO, Fla. – Tropical Storm Dolly formed in the Atlantic Ocean Tuesday, becoming the fourth named storm of the season.
The National Hurricane Center upgraded the storm from a subtropical depression Tuesday at 12:15 p.m. as it swirled toward Nova Scotia. The latest NHC advisory says the storm has maximum sustained winds around 45 mph with higher gusts as it spins off the northeast coast of the United States. It is not expected to impact Florida.
The system is expected to become a post-tropical storm Wednesday, according to the NHC.
Less than 24 hours after getting a name, Dolly was downgraded to a post-tropical remnant and is not a concern for Florida.
