Hurricane Dorian

5:15 AM EDT: The forecast track is basically the same as yesterday afternoon, but now it is predicted to become a hurricane and a Category 2 by the time it makes landfall along the central coast of Florida.  Residents in that part of the state should get ready.  Puerto Rico is already in the path and is bracing for it.

7:00 PM EDT: Forecast now shows Dorian making landfall on Monday as a Category 2 along the Space Coast of Florida (Cape Canaveral).

3:00 PM EDT: Now it’s a hurricane.  Miami-Dade County is on the edge of the cone and the weak side, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be significant wind and rain in the area.  Cape Canaveral is in the center of the cone, but it covers from the upper Keys to Hilton Head, South Carolina, and as we’ve learned with many storms in the past, they can go anywhere.

10:00 AM EDT: This map has Dorian becoming a Category 3 by Monday morning.
