<!-- wp:oxygen-vsb/ovsb-section-w-text {"headline-4-253470_string":"STORM SUMMARY","text_block-3-253470_string":" At 200 PM AST (1800 UTC), the center of Hurricane Dorian was located near latitude 42.8 North, longitude 64.9 West. Dorian is moving toward the northeast near 29 mph (46 km/h), and a general motion toward the northeast is expected to continue through Sunday night. On the forecast track, the center of Dorian is expected to move across central or eastern Nova Scotia this afternoon or this evening, pass near or over Prince Edward Island tonight, and then move near or over portions of Newfoundland and Labrador on Sunday.

Recent satellite wind data indicate that the maximum sustained winds are now near 100 mph (155 km/h) with higher gusts. While Dorian is forecast to weaken and become a post-tropical cyclone during the next 24 hours, it is expected to maintain hurricane-force winds as it moves across eastern Canada this afternoon through Sunday.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 115 miles (185 km) to the south of the center, and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 310 miles (500 km). NOAA buoy 44011 to the southwest of the center recently reported sustained winds of 74 mph (119 km/h) and a wind gust of 94 mph (151 km/h). A station at Baccarro Point, Nova Scotia, recently reported sustained winds of 58 mph (93 km/h).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 953 mb (28.15 inches).
