As a category 2 storm, Hurricane Dorian expected to turn north Wednesday night
At 2 p.m. the eye of Hurricane Dorian was located
by NWS Doppler radar near latitude 27.5 North, longitude 78.7 West.
Dorian is moving toward the northwest near 5 mph (7 km/h), and a
slightly faster motion toward the northwest or north-northwest is
expected later today and tonight.  A turn toward the north is
forecast by Wednesday evening, followed by a turn toward the
north-northeast Thursday morning.  On this track, the core of
extremely dangerous Hurricane Dorian will gradually move north of
Grand Bahama Island through this evening.  The hurricane will then
move dangerously close to the Florida east coast late today through
Wednesday evening, very near the Georgia and South Carolina coasts
Wednesday night and Thursday, and near or over the North Carolina
coast late Thursday and Thursday night.
