UPDATE (8:00 am): Tropical Storm Dorian continues to move westward

8:00 a.m. location of Dorian on Sunday Aug 25, 2019

At 8 a.m., Tropical Storm Dorian was located near Latitude 11.1N and Longitude 52.1W approximately 515 miles east south east of Barbados (1100km or 683 miles southeast of Dominica).  Dorian is moving towards the west at 13mph (20km/h). A turn toward the west-northwest is forecast on Monday and Tuesday.

On the forecast track, Dorian is now expected to be near the central Lesser Antilles, including Dominica, late Monday or early Tuesday.

Dorian could be near hurricane strength over the Eastern Caribbean Sea. Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 25 miles (35 km) from the center.

The center of Dorian is likely to pass to the south of Dominica. Regardless, a deterioration in weather conditions including moderate to heavy showers, thunderstorms and strong gusty winds, is expected across Dominica from overnight Monday and throughout Tuesday. Rainfall projection is for 2 to 4 inches (50-100mm) across Dominica with higher amounts in elevated areas.  

Residents are therefore advised to be VIGILANT, make the necessary preparations, keep updated on this system.  

The Meteorological Service will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates.

    Hope is does a U-Turn and heads east or moves due north. This thing could be like Maria intensify in one day into a category 5 hurricane right before hitting land. Global warming, ocean surface engine hotter.

      I really hope NOT. After Erika AND Maria, we need a break. It may sound a bit selfish to say so but…Dominica has born the brunt of the Hurricane season for the past 4 years…we need a break

      Lord have mercy.
