FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — Tropical Storm Dorian, forecast to be at or near hurricane status by Tuesday as it moves west into the Caribbean, has put Barbados under a tropical storm warning and other Caribbean islands under tropical storm watches on Sunday.

Although Dorian is on a general path toward Florida, it is far too soon to determine its impact on any part of the state.

The range of potential outcomes was still pretty wide, Senior Hurricane Specialist Jack Beven wrote in a forecast discussion posted on the National Hurricane Center’s website on Sunday.
