As of Wednesday, September 4 at 12:40 PM, Hurricane Dorian is continuing it’s northwestward track up the Atlantic coast. Currently it’s dumping rain and sending gusty winds to areas like Jacksonville, FL and Savannah, GA through it’s outer bands.
Right now tropical storm warnings are in effect for Daytona Beach and north, as well as storm surge warnings for the coastline of Daytona Beach and northward. Hurricane warnings remain in effect for the eastern coast of the United States from Daytona Beach all the way to North Carolina. All of these warnings/watches will be in effect until further notice.
You can thank an upper-level trough for shooting Dorian out into the Atlantic by the weekend, and for finally hooking to the North after slamming the Bahamas. Dorian sits at a Category 2 with 105 mph winds and will continue to weaken in strength by the weekend when it downgrades to a Category 1.
Storm surge, flooding, heavy rain and wind gusts still remain to be the primary threats for Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina.
We will continue to monitor Dorian and update you with the latest information.
