The remnants of Tropical Storm Dorian is expected to bring heavy showers and thunderstorms to south Florida this week.

The system dissipated over the weekend, loosing tropical storm characteristics, but is still producing showers and storms as it moves westward through the southwestern Atlantic ocean.

There is chance the Dorian could again become a tropical storm, but the system is expected to continue to produce periods of heavy rain regardless of its official classification.

Dorian become the fourth-named storm of the 2013 Atlantic hurricane season when it developed last Wednesday morning in the eastern Atlantic ocean.

The system fought with unfavorable environmental conditions as it tracked through the Atlantic ocean, including dry air and wind shear.  Wind shear ripped the storm apart, preventing it from staying organized.

The most active month of hurricane season is typically September.  Hurricane season ends on November 30.
