Current Forecasted Strenght
Although we are still several days away from impacts on Flordia it should be noted that models are showing rapid strengthening as landfall nears.
It does appear landfall for east Flordia then a possible crossover of Florida then a curve last second to the north/northeast.
We will have to see the updates in the coming days if an actual landfall will be made or if in some cases on a few model runs, landfall is made on the east coast of Flordia then pushes off to the north and east grazing the east coastline. So that being said still a lot of uncertainty but something to be noted and if you are in the impacted zones for Dorian, Now is the time to prepare!
