Dorian is moving toward the northeast near 25 mph (41 km/h), and this general motion is expected through Sunday. On the forecast track, the center of Dorian should pass to the southeast of extreme southeastern New England this morning, and then move across Nova Scotia and Newfoundland later today and tonight.

Maximum sustained winds are near 85 mph (140 km/h) with higher gusts. Some slight weakening is forecast, but Dorian is expected to move over Nova Scotia with hurricane-force winds. Thereafter, Dorian is forecast to become a powerful post-tropical cyclone over eastern Canada by tonight or early Sunday.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 105 miles (165 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 310 miles (500 km). A NOAA buoy at Nantucket Shoals, Massachusetts, recently reported a sustained wind of 52 mph (83 km/h) and a gust of 76 mph (122 km/h). A Weatherflow observation on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, recently measured a wind gust of 48 mph (77 km/h).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 965 mb (28.50 inches).
