    tropical storm/hurricane Dorian 2019 appears to be heading for Florida.

    It is expected to affect FL, GA, possibly SC, AL and other states.

    This is potentially a serious storm. Please check yer preps and stay safe.

    The announcement will be archived after the storm passes.

    Projected tracks look like spaghetti right now. No telling just where it will go, across Florida into the Gulf (bad for me) or up the east coast (better for me). Luckily it's a fairly small storm moving fast. This will reduce potential damage.

    local fox news is saying this hurricane should strengthen to cat 2 or cat 3 before most likely hitting middle to upper east coast of Florida.

    Wind speeds up to 85 mph, pressure down a little to 986 mb. Forecast track remains nearly the same as earlier.

    Certainly one to watch...

    Drudge is headlining an article that says 31% chance of Cat 4.

    I hope Hurricane Dorian doesn't take out the fishing camp. I just made arrangements to go back this February.

    I have a question for people who know about hurricanes. Can this hurricane hit the East coast and then travel across the state to then go on and gain strength to hit on the gulf side?

    Thanks @Yard Dart. From some of the models, it looks like this one could cause trouble on both sides of Florida.

    If the water in the Gulf is warm enough and upper level winds don't shift and pick it apart.

    That sounds serious.
    Well at the very least I put Texas inbetween it and me.

    update as of 2300 Thursday ET.

    It seems to be heading for Southern/Central FL and if it does not turn North or disintegrate could certainly get into the Gulf and might strengthen if and when it does.

    We will know more when the hurricane hunter aircraft gather more data.

    I'm still out of range but that doesn't mean Dorian won't be sighting me in! Time to get some D batteries. LOL.
