MIAMI (AP) — Forecasters say Tropical Storm Dorian has formed in the eastern Atlantic and remains far from land.

The storm's maximum sustained winds Wednesday were near 50 mph. The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami says it is moving quickly across the Atlantic at 21 mph.

The storm is centered about 410 miles west-southwest of the Cape Verde Islands, off the coast of west Africa. Dorian could get a bit stronger Wednesday, though it is forecast to weaken some on Thursday as it moves over cooler water.
