The National Hurricane Center just reported that Dorian’s winds are now up to 70 mph. She will likely become a hurricane later today. The hurricane center also issued a much more dire forecast for the east coast of Florida, stating that Dorian could become a major hurricane before making landfall on Labor Day.
This is a big change from yesterday, when it looked like Dorian would strike the east coast of Florida as a strong tropical storm. Now, we may be looking at a very destructive, major hurricane.
Changes with this forecast are likely, so stay tuned.
Below is the latest track map, showing the storm aiming straight for the Space Coast.
