    Channel 9's Severe Weather Center 9 is tracking two tropical disturbances: Tropical Storm Dorian and Invest 98L. The fourth tropical storm of the Atlantic hurricane season is maintaining its strength as it moves toward the Windward Islands, according to the National Hurricane Center. Tropical Storm Dorian is in the Atlantic and will move into the Caribbean Monday night. Dorian’s winds are at 50 mph.   The storm will be very close to Puerto Rico on Wednesday and Haiti and the Dominican Republic on Thursday.   2019 Atlantic Hurricane Season name list   “Dorian could be close to hurricane status at that time. After that, it is too early to tell what will happen to it. And, if it crosses Hispaniola, the high terrain could tear it up,” meteorologist Brian Shields said.     A tropical storm warning is in effect for Barbados, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines. A tropical storm watch was issued for Grenada and Martinique.   Invest 98L could still become a tropical system by early this week. It is not forecast to impact any region of the U.S. directly. At most, this storm will cause rough surf along the Carolina coast as it strengthens and moves over water. We'll watch for rip currents at Central Florida beaches   What’s the difference? Hurricane, tropical storm and a tropical depression   It was expected for the tropics to get busier. After all, we are approaching the heart of the season. Usually, over 80% of Atlantic tropical activity occurs between August and October.   SEE DORIAN'S LATEST TRACK WINDS AT THE BEACH  WATER TEMPERATURES & WAVE HEIGHT   Viewers have asked if this system will threaten Florida. It is too far out to know this, but considering it will struggle a lot in the Caribbean, then likely pass over the high mountains in the Dominican Republic, this system is not likely to be a big tropical threat to Florida. Channel 9 will continue to monitor the tropics closely and bring you the latest on Eyewitness News and on our free WFTV Weather app. READ: Orange County offering residents free sandbags Watch Channel 9 Eyewitness News for an updated track of the system.

  • Catch something big on the open waters and want to brag about it? Florida wildlife officials are upgrading their website to make it easier for fishermen to identify and submit their catches. Earlier this month, CatchaFloridaMemory.com added new features including an often requested option to allow anglers to submit their catches one at a time. The website also has a new submission format that identifies which recognitions a catch will likely qualify for. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officials say this will allow anglers the opportunity to net every recognition possible for their submission and eliminate the hassle of having to submit photos more than once for different recognitions Anglers will also notice a shorter lag time between a submission's approval and angler notification.
  • The Orlando Police Department said the University of Florida's band director was grabbed and pushed to the ground after the football game against the Miami Hurricanes on Saturday night. Police said Director Jay Watkins was walking back to the buses when a Hurricanes fan began pushing her way through the band.  He attempted to stop the woman, but he was grabbed from behind and pushed to the ground, according to police. Watkins was treated by a paramedic for cuts and scrapes to his head and elbow before he boarded the bus to go home. Police said Watkins did not want to press charges, but did ask the incident to be documented. This is a developing story. Check back for more details.
  • Friends say a mother and daughter were killed in a violent domestic shooting in Florida. Coconut Creek Police have charged Jason Roseman with two counts of murder in the deaths of Hannah Bonta and her mother Jan Kirkland. He is also charged with two counts of premeditated murder after authorities say he shot Bonta's boyfriend Saturday and a police officer who responded to the scene. Bonta's boyfriend was found in extremely critical condition outside the home. The Sun Sentinel reports Bonta graduated from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland just months before a gunman opened fire killing 17 people last year. The city of Coconut Creek is adjacent to Parkland and relatives of the Parkland victims living nearby posted online that they were troubled by the gun violence. ___ Information from: Sun Sentinel , http://www.sun-sentinel.com/

  • A Florida driver has died after being struck by a high-speed train, at least the 16th person killed on that line this year. The Broward Sheriff's Office says the driver was struck by the Brightline passenger train on Sunday morning in Pompano Beach. The unidentified driver was pronounced dead at the scene. Federal Railroad Administration records show that 11 people were killed by Brightline trains between Jan. 1 and May 31. Media reports show five more deaths since then. Many are suicides while others are people trying to beat the trains, which can exceed speeds of 70 mph (112 kph). Authorities warn against trying to beat the train, noting it could take up to a mile for a train to stop once the emergency brakes are applied.

  • James Blackman was the front-runner all along and now the quarterback has won Florida State's starting job. Coach Willie Taggart made the announcement on Sunday night in a statement posted on the school's website. Blackman beat out Wisconsin graduate transfer Alex Hornibrook and Louisville transfer Jordan Travis. The redshirt sophomore will start for the Seminoles when they open the season against Boise State on Saturday in Jacksonville. It's not clear if Hornibrook or Travis will be FSU's backup. Taggart's next opportunity to meet with the media is on Monday. Blackman has started 13 games, including 12 as a true freshman in 2017. He has thrown for 2,740 yards, 24 touchdowns and 12 interceptions at FSU. In his only 2018 start, Blackman threw for 421 yards, four touchdowns and an interception in a road loss to NC State. Blackman became the immediate odds-on favorite this winter when Taggart dismissed Deondre Francois, who started 11 games last fall.
