Dorian’s slower westward path is forecast to continue for the next day or two, before making a gradual turn to the northwest.

On its current track, forecasters say the core of the storm should be near or over portions of the northwestern Bahamas on Sunday and move closer to Florida’s east coast late Monday through Tuesday night.

The storm’s forecast path has shifted slightly to the west for South Florida areas, but remains unchanged for Central Florida. If the track stays as it is, Central Florida will feel impacts Tuesday and Wednesday.

Dorian is expected to remain a powerful hurricane during the next few days, forecasters say.
