Hurricane Dorian’s Projected Path on September 5

Above is a map above from the National Hurricane Center showing a forecast cone and coastal watches and warnings released today, updated for September 5. This map does not indicate the hurricane’s size, but it does show the hurricane’s current projected path.

This next map may give you a better idea of when to first expect to feel the effects of the hurricane. This map shows the estimated arrival time of tropical storm force winds. The map below was updated Sept. 5.


Next is a different look at the hurricane’s projected path. Keep in mind that this map has an interactive component that you can view here. This screenshot is from September 5.

Next up is a wind-speed probability map. This shows the probability of tropical storm force winds, as predicted on September 5.

And next are predictions for the probability of hurricane force winds.


Rainfall & Flooding Potential Maps

This next map from NOAA shows the rainfall potential.


According to the National Hurricane Center on September 5 at 1 p.m., Hurricane Dorian is currently at 32.7 N, 79.0 W. It’s about 55 miles east of Charleston, South Carolina and 125 miles south-southwest of Wilmington, North Carolina.

The storm is moving north-northeast or 20 degrees at 8 mph.

Maximum winds are currently 110 mph, up from 105 mph last night. Minimum central pressure is 958 mb (28.29 inches).

At 11 a.m., NOAA released the following information.

“Dorian is moving toward the north-northeast near 8 mph (13 km/h). A turn toward the northeast is anticipated by tonight, and a northeastward motion at a faster forward speed is forecast on Friday. On the forecast track, the center of Dorian will continue to move close to the coast of South Carolina today, and then move near or over the coast of North Carolina tonight and Friday. The center should move to the southeast of extreme southeastern New England Friday night and Saturday morning, and approach Nova Scotia later on Saturday.

“Reports from Air Force Reserve and NOAA Hurricane Hunter aircraft indicate that maximum sustained winds are now near 110 mph (175 km/h) with higher gusts. Slow weakening is expected during the next few days. However, Dorian is expected to remain a powerful hurricane as the center moves near the coasts of South and North Carolina. Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 60 miles (95 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 195 miles (315 km). The Weatherflow station at Winyah Bay, South Carolina, recently reported sustained winds of 60 mph (97 km/h) and a wind gust of 76 mph (122 km/h). Charleston International Airport recently reported sustained winds of 40 mph (64 km/h) and a wind gust of 56 mph (91 km/h).”

A 1 p.m. Eastern update added: “Multiple observing stations located in and around Charleston Harbor have reported wind gusts of 75-80 mph (120-129 km/h) within the last hour. A Weatherflow site in Winyah Bay, SC recently reported a wind gust of 86 mph (138 km/h) at a height of 50 ft.”
