Hurricane Dorian now is a category 4 hurricane with top winds of 140 mph. Dorian is located now about 300 miles east of the northwestern Bahamas. The latest computer models have the storm slow down as it approaches Florida and then stay just off the coast and then move northward possible sparing the state a direct hit. The storm will move up the coast and may hit the Carolinas and then move northeast away from our area. At the present time it looks like the storm will not have any direct influences to our weather except for high surf and dangerous rip currents along our shore late next week.
Have a nice holiday weekend!
