The latest: Tropical Storm Dorian

UPDATE — Dorian became a hurricane on Wednesday. Click here for details, especially its threat to Florida as a major Category 3 storm.


Moving around taught me

“Everybody knows somebody in Florida”

and

“Every story has a Florida connection”

so this updating tropical weather article with graphic and text information on Tropical Storm Dorian from the National Hurricane Center is a courtesy to regular readers, in Philadelphia or not.

This page should update on its own, like ThePhillyFiles weather page, so keep returning to see changes. The National Hurricane Center often begins advisories with a list of what has changed since the previous one.

Full advisories come every six hours (5am, 11am, 5pm and 11pm using Eastern Daylight Time) and intermediate advisories come every three hours in between (8am, 2pm, 8pm, 2am).

And keep scrolling down for the video, How to use the Cone of Uncertainty.

Monitor the progress of Dorian and make sure to have your hurricane plan in place. Keep a week’s worth of the basic items you’ll need on hand throughout every hurricane season (June 1 through Nov. 30).
