TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA)- Hurricane Dorian has finally started to move north.
“It’s absolutely brutal when ‘NW at 2 MPH’ is a significant change in motion but there’s where we’re at with Dorian – a storm that barely moved for two days” said Storm Team 8 Meteorologist Ian Oliver. “It’s slowly moving AWAY from the northern Bahamas but its broader wind field will bring dangerous wind/surge impacts to FL Atlantic Coast.”
By late Wednesday the system will be moving north of Florida.
Tuesday will be breezy with north winds at 10-20 mph across the Tampa Bay area. We may get some outer rain bands that roll through and have called for a 60% chance of rain. Highs on Tuesday will be in the upper 80s as there’s more cloud cover and breezy north winds.
Wednesday an onshore wind will develop behind Dorian and it will be breezy again. The rain chance is only 30% in the morning hours. Through the day drier air will move in and there will be plenty of sunshine and highs in the upper 80s.
Thursday the rain chance is only 10% with a mostly sunny sky.
