The forecast for Dorian and its effects on the Eastern Shore hasn’t changed in the last 24 hours. As of now, Dorian is expected to pass near Cape Hatteras Thursday night and Friday morning.
Both the GFS and the European computer models show that the Eastern Shore should receive between 1 and 4 inches of rain with the lower Shore getting more rain . Winds are expected to gust at 40-45mph. Tides will be above normal and there could be some flooding in low lying areas.
It’s important to realize that these wind forecasts are at the coast line. The heaviest winds will occur on the Atlantic Ocean beaches. Inland the winds will not be as strong.
Unless the forecast changes we can expect some rain and 30-40 mph winds in the predawn hours of Friday morning.
