July 19- Morning Tropical Storm Dora Update

Tropical Storm Dora currently has maximum sustained winds of 55 MPH, with a central pressure of 996 millibars. Dora is moving west at 16 MPH.
Dora is forecast to rapidly strengthen into a hurricane, and eventually into a major Category 3 hurricane before rapidly cooling down into a tropical storm 5 days out and then likely weakening.

Intensity and ensemble forecasts paint a similar picture, although some models bring the storm a bit too close for comfort to Baja California. We will have to watch that scenario.

Dora is currently not a threat to land but could eventually affect land.
