4WARN Weather: Dorian's Impacts on Wiregrass May Surprise you.

By  | 

UPDATE: As of 12:13 [PM] Tuesday

Dorian, now a category 2 hurricane with max winds of 120 mph, is now slowly turning north running parallel to the Florida costline. With a northward shift expected in the coming days Dorian will remain offshore until it reaches the Carolina's later this week as a low grade hurricane or potentially at the weakest a tropical storm.

Because Dorian will pass to the east of the Wiregrass our winds will primarily be out of the NE/N through the end of the week. That might not seem like a big deal or major factor to the forecast but it is, northerly winds suppress afternoon t'storms keeping us hot and dry. Afternoon highs will run 5-7 degrees above normal for early September and ran chances are in the 10% or less range through Friday.
