After coming back to life this morning, Dorian is downgraded again.  The latest update from the National Hurricane Center classifies Dorian as a "post tropical cyclone."  It has lost it's tropical characteristics and is a remnant low pressure system that will move toward the north and east as it continues to weaken.

The storm was briefly upgraded back to a tropical depression this morning.  That regeneration was brief before the downgrade again Saturday afternoon.

It is only causing rain off the eastern coast of Florida now.  A few showers will affect the Florida coastline.  Folks along the east coast of Florida will also experience some rough surf.  Dorian is forecast to move to the north and east and not have a direct impact on land.  The post tropical system won't have any effect on us here in Georgia.  

Here is the latest advisory from NHC:
