Disturbance North of Puerto Rico

The remnants of Tropical Storm Dorian now form a region of disorganized thunderstorms a couple of hundred miles north of Puerto Rico.  There's no closed circulation and conditions are not very good for development. Some of the t-storms are generating winds up to gale force.  A hurricane reconnaisance aircraft may be sent this afternoon to examine the area more closely.  NHC forecasts the chance of this system becoming a tropical storm within the next 48 hours at less than 50%.
