Weather Update

At 8 a.m. the center of the storm was about 120 miles east of Palm Beach, Florida. It was moving to the west at 1 mph with maximum sustained winds of 165 mph.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 45 miles from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 140 miles.

A slow westward to west-northwestward motion is forecast during the next day or so, followed by a gradual turn toward the northwest and north. On this track, the core of extremely dangerous Hurricane Dorian will continue to pound Grand Bahama Island through much of today and tonight. The hurricane will move dangerously close to the Florida east coast tonight through Wednesday evening.

There are no watches or warnings for Miami-Dade County but occasional 45 mph gusts and rain storms are expected until Wednesday morning.
