Dorian is churning in the Atlantic and is expected to become a hurricane soon as it approaches Puerto Rico. Oh no, where will Dorian go after that? Forecasters can only watch and wait.

Tropical Depression Six has developed between Bermuda and the US. It is expected to remain east of the US as it moves generally NE over the next few days. The depression is expected to intensify to a tropical storm by Tuesday morning.
