As of 2PM

Dorian is now a Category 4 hurricane with winds of 150mph. The extremely slow movement continues to the west-northwest at 1mph.


  • The intense center of circulation continues over Grand Bahama Island
  • The movement continues at a snail’s pace, to the west-northwest a 1mph
  • The forecast track keeps the system as a Cat 4 until Tuesday night/ Wednesday Morning

Additional weakening is expected as it approaches the South Carolina Coastline, but there will be impacts across the state. Dorian is expected to have winds of around 110 mph as it moves parallel to the South Carolina Coastline. There is still some uncertainty with how close the center will be at that time and the forward speed, both factors could change the forecast dramatically. Stay tuned for updates and changes.
