Dorian downgraded to Category 3 and it looks like it will skate up the east coast far enough offshore to prevent major wind damage. Lots of rain though.

Hearts go out to the people of the Bahamas and the other islands though.

Seriously, I hope everyone's battened down their hatches in preparation for this thing, and that nobody gets hurt.

..

At present it now looks like only a lot of rain will be happening for Floridians..(lucky pass maybe..and fingers crossed..)

Let's see what tomorrow's weather forecast update brings...

Now a Cat 2 and no visible eye showing anymore..and heading a bit further away from land....a close call...

Just so you're all aware (in case you weren't) peak hurricane month is actually September
Let's Pray for the East Coast.. it's way too late for the Bahamas..


Been there.. done that, (Andrew, Sept. 92').. My heart goes out to all ya.. who are perched at the edge of your seats, just waiting to spring out your door and head off into nowhere land in your cars.. I can tell you, IT SUCKS.. I-95 backed up for 150 miles.. No motel rooms for the next 500 miles... I hope you've got some relatives inland close by...

^^ That's good news. Even though we often disagree, I'm glad you're OK.

It does appear that the coast of Georgia and the Carolinas may get more of Dorian's brunt this time. Southern Virginia should get some showers, so we'll see a little bit up here.

Northeast corner of North Carolina getting hit this morning. Dorian then expected to move out over open water and hit Nova Scotia as a tropical storm over the weekend / early next week. (Nova Scotia and tropical in the same phrase - surely some mistake!)

Looks like Dorian is going to miss our Nation's Capital. They're forecasted not to get any rain for the next week.

To mess with the Donald, some of the pundits speculate we could see substantial offers of help from China.
Perhaps in exchange for a Chinese run port, just 50 miles off the US coast?
