The short term story is that the storm is strengthening and will hit the Virgin Islands and other nearby islands as a weak hurricane today and brush against Puerto Rico as a strong tropical storm in the near future.
The big story is that the intensity forecast for the weekend has gone up significantly. Right now, Dorian is projected to be a Category 3 storm by the middle of the weekend with a landfall projected on Monday morning somewhere in Florida.
This is a significant intensification of the forecast over the past twenty four hours and the storm has slowed down as Dorian was expected to be hitting Florida as a borderline hurricane on Sunday morning.
For the eastern Florida jackals, time to start your hurricane plans.
