The post-tropical cyclone is moving toward the northeast near 25 mph (41 km/h), and this general motion is expected to continue during the next couple of days. On this track, Dorian will be moving near or over northwestern Newfoundland or eastern Labrador later today and then enter the North Atlantic this evening.

Maximum sustained winds are near 75 mph (120 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, and it is forecast to be absorbed by another large low pressure system in a couple of days.

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). Stephenville, Newfoundland, recently reported sustained winds of 51 mph (81 km/h) and a wind gust of 62 mph (100 km/h).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 963 mb (28.44 inches).
