Hurricane Dorian is now expected to make landfall in Florida on Monday night and into Tuesday morning, according to the National Hurricane Center.
Dorian is currently slowing down in movement, but wind speed is still increasing. The hurricane is still expected to become a Category 4 storm with 130 mph winds when it makes landfall.
Sebastian has been in the spotlight on several computer-generated models as a possible area of concern, but now that might be changing. As we’ve said since Wednesday, the tracking will change with Hurricane Dorian in Florida.
“The new NHC track forecast is essentially unchanged through the first 2 to 3 days, but has been adjusted southward and somewhat slower than the previous advisory at 96 and 120 hours,” the National Hurricane Center said.
There has also been a change in most of the computer-generated models. Some are now moving towards the open Atlantic near Florida.
However, the EURO and UK models are showing possible landfall between West Palm Beach and Miami before turning north through the middle of Florida. The models are showing this pattern more as the days go on.
However, the GFS/USA model shows landfall near Sebastian. These are unofficial forecasts, but the EURO and UK models have always been a little more accurate than others. Again, this isn’t the official forecast, but it may be something for us to keep an eye on.
Hurricane Dorian can make landfall anywhere between South Georgia and The Keys. It’s still too early to predict where this hurricane will make landfall.
