DORIAN WILL NOT HIT COAST. LATEST TRACK HERE

[ Edited ]

According to the latest track, it apppears that most of Florida will be dodging the bullet. It is still necessary keep following all weather updates.  Top models are as of 1:36 and bottom models are as of 12, but models are updated a couple of hours following latest advisory. The 1 P.M advisory model will soon be posted. Head of Hurricane Center was interviewed and said that 1 P.M. advisory was looking good.

YAY!!!   I was supposed to fly in to south FL today, but (at some cost) pushed it out two weeks.  Still, better safe than sorry.

This is what the European model was saying days ago. It seems like that model is always correct.

Re: DORIAN WILL NOT HIT COAST. LATEST TRACK HERE

I live in NE Florida and we are still advised to watch the storm. I thought I was going to evacuate but now, thankfully, it looks like I will not. I spent all week getting water, canned foods, gas etc. Preparing is very stressful so I am probably going to take a nap now and then look at the 5 PM update from National Hurricane Center. I am very thankful the storm has turned and hope it just goes out to sea and does not hurt anyone in the US. I do feel sorry for the Bahamas though.

Hi MaryLamb. Models continually change based on other weather factors. You have to look at the most updated models to get any real meaning from them. There’s an area of high pressure to the north of Florida. That area can press on Dorian and steer it, keeping it southward, eastward or westward. I was worried until today. Lucky for us, this high hasn’t had the impact it could have had, so the storm is not moving as far westward, and it’s not staying south. YAY. This storm will be almost a Cat 5. It could even become a Cat 5. There’s almost home that can withstand a Cat 5. By definition, a Cat 5, 157 mph winds, results in total devastation. Cat 4s are no picnic either. Stay safe.

The reports I've looked at in the last 30 minutes say it could make landfall along the coast around Wilmington, NC.  We are preparing here in South Carolina.

I don't think anyone should be getting too comfortable. This storm is crawling, and shifting. The Weather Center is trying their best but this storm is massive.

 

If it shifts in any small way, it changes who gets impacted. It is still days away. They are trying to forecast a storm that is not even going to hit until Monday, then it will crawl up the coast all the way through Thursday.

 

I get concerned that people will get complacent and think they will not get it. Maybe not, maybe not the direct hit, but the size of it leaves the east coast line up for tons of rain and still possible damaging winds.

All have been warned that this is the track that is CURRENTLY showing. No one should be complacent. These tracts are based on up to date weather data which yields these models. As the data changes things could change. Everyone should keep their eyes on the reports and data. Tonight’s 11 PM advisory will result in updated models about two hours later. These models will be more reliable than the current models I’ve posted. Weather is a dynamic phenomena. Ongoing observation is key. The probability that things will go the way the models depict is  good but is not 100% certain.

@Mindy DI just came back in yhe house after a long lunch and a quick stop at the supermarket.   Right before I left, Cantore was reporting the track was looking to be offshore, but he did not take Miami and my part of SE Florida out of the possible coastal flooding area.  

 

Was that also announced as no longer true also?

Coastal flooding is not a part of this track, however, the next ADVISORY will probably speak to flooding. There’s a 5:00 P.M. Advisory. Then an 8:00 P.M. and an 11:00 P.M. possibility of flooding due to rain, this is usually mentioned in advisories. If you are talking about storm surge, that’s usually mentioned along with the hurricane’s position relative to shore. If the hurricane is far out to sea there’s not much to worry about. If it is coming ashore, then storm surge is a bigger problem. This is an abbreviated discussion from NOA from 11:00 A.M.B4BF65BA-2462-4104-9116-4DCC409C1733.png
