The post-tropical cyclone is moving toward the north-northeast near 26 mph (43 km/h), and this general motion with a turn to the northeast is expected during the next couple of days. On this track, Dorian will be moving near or over western Newfoundland later today and then enter the North Atlantic this evening.

Maximum sustained winds are near 80 mph (130 km/h) with higher gusts. These winds are occurring mainly over water. The post- tropical cyclone is forecast to drop below hurricane strength after passing Newfoundland later today.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 90 miles (150 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 345 miles (555 km). A sustained wind of 62 mph (100 km/h) with a gust to 79 mph (128 km/h) was recently reported at Heath Point on Anticosti Island. A wind gust to 69 mph (109 km/h) was recently observed at North Mountain in Nova Scotia.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 960 mb (28.35 inches).
