A storm of this strength could potentially cross Florida and survive in to the Gulf of Mexico, where it could regain strength. However, Accuweather predicts that Dorian is likely to weaken, turn northward and remain mostly over land, crossing past Tallahassee in to Georgia as a tropical storm. I don't see this prediction anywhere else, so I'm not sure I entirely believe it!

I am currently on a large cruise ship 200 nm south west of Miami ! We'll surely get to Miami before this storm but I am not hopeful my 10pm Sunday night flight will be taking off ( or inbound will be landing ).
Potentially means we'll have nowhere to go Sunday though !

Cruise ship would hardly drop ye off right before a hurricane hits would it?

I saw earlier that this is predicted to be a category 4 hurricane at landfall. That's a major hurricane and the east coast of Florida looks like it'll get a fair rattle.

It is due to drop us to Miami tomorrow AM - then head for the Bahamas, I presume that will reroute, but we'll be on land well before Dorian hits

Hope to be in a hotel - or have got outta here before that !

They are never a pleasant experience so careful what you wish for if it hits hard it’s very disruptive, even in a built up area rather than an island where it’s unbearable.

06Z SHIPS forecast at +84 hours.

112 kts, 70 km from land. SST 30C. Shear 7 kts. Storm speed only 4 kts, so hurricane conditions will last quite a long time in affected areas.

This will be a big one. Probably deserving of it's own thread?

This might be an incorrect observation but is the fact there is a lot of warm water between the hurricane and Florida and the fact that it's slowing down mean that it could be a category 5 hurricane by the time it gets to Florida ? They are saying it'll be a cat 4 but it's not expected to make landfall in Florida until Monday night.

Getting into Peak Season and waves starting to appear on the W coast of Africa which the ECM is picking up as potential future Tropical Storms or Hurricanes and long long way off but where will the remnants of Dorian end up. Could run up along the Western Seaboard of the US with the remains of it coming across towards us steered by the Jet but that is probably for the FI thread.
