  Hurricane Dorian is dangerously close to Florida’s Space Coast Tuesday evening.  The wind field is expanding, increasing the odds of hurricane force winds and dangerous storm surge as Dorian hugs the eastern seaboard from central Florida to North Carolina from now into Friday.

At 8 pm, Dorian was located near 28.1 North, 78.8 West, about 110 miles east of Cape Canaveral.  Maximum sustained winds were 110 miles per hour.  Dorian was moving northwest at 6 miles per hour.

Dorian is expected to turn to the north-northwest and speed up on Tuesday night before turning to the north on Wednesday evening.  Watches and warnings are in place from Sebastian Inlet, Florida, to the Virginia/North Carolina border and for Chesapeake Bay.
