Good morning bloggers,
Let’s begin with five different computer models, narrowing in on a potential landfall location:
Hurricane Dorian is moving northwest this morning, and it will turn west tonight or Friday. The timing on when it turns west is of extreme importance as to where the landfall target will become. The steering currents will be changing in the next three to four days, and as we get to Labor Day, Hurricane Dorian may have become a major hurricane. The steering currents become so weak, that the hurricane will likely slow down as it approaches Florida. So, this is one we will be tracking for a while.
This map above was the early morning updated track prediction from the National Hurricane Center. They had expanded the cone to include the Keys and all the way up to southern Georgia.
The Kansas City Chiefs open their NFL season at Jacksonville, FL which is up near the northeastern tip of Florida. We will monitor the track closely as some of the models take this system up through the heart of Florida. While that is a fascinating track, similar to Irma from a few years ago, the final track and solution is far from being decided.
Kansas City Weather:
Here is our latest Powercast showing one possible solution for tonight. A Flash Flood Watch has been issued.
Have a great day!
