Dorian will produce adverse weather impacts along a large part of the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic coastal U.S. the rest of the week. So far, Dorian has produced devastating impacts across the Bahamas but limited impacts across the east coast of Florida. However, impact magnitude is likely to increase as Dorian moves north.
Dorian is expected to remain offshore, but it will come very close to the Northeast Florida, and the Carolina coasts.
Dorian could produce significant storm surge impacts across the Southeast U.S.
Water levels could begin to rise well in advance of the arrival of strong winds. The surge will be accompanied by large and destructive waves. Surge-related flooding can vary greatly over short distances.
The water could reach these heights (right) above ground somewhere in the indicated areas if the peak surge occurs at the time of high tide.
Parts of the Georgia and Carolina coasts could see rain totals in excess of 6".
The tropics remain very active however Hurricane Dorian is the only system expected to significantly impact the U.S.
