By BBN Staff: Hurricane Dorian is now a Category 3 Hurricane and is headed for Florida and the Northwest Bahamas.

A Hurricane Watch continues for the Northwest Bahamas.

Hurricane conditions are possible in the northwestern Bahamas by Sunday, with tropical storm conditions possible by Saturday night or Sunday morning.

The National Hurricane Center (NHC) issued warnings for life-threatening storm surge and devastating hurricane-force winds along portions of the Florida east coast by early next week.

Residents should have their hurricane plan in place, know if they are in a hurricane evacuation zone, and listen to advice given by local emergency officials.

As of 2pm today, Dorian was centered about 625 miles east of West Palm Beach, Florida.

Dorian is moving toward the northwest near 10 miles per hour.

 A slower west- northwestward to westward motion should begin tonight and continue into early next week.

Dorian is forecasted to move over the Atlantic well north of the southeastern and central Bahamas today and tomorrow, be near or over the northwestern Bahamas on Sunday, and be near the Florida peninsula late Monday.

Dorian is a category 3 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 25 miles from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 105 miles.

Additional strengthening is forecasted and Dorian is anticipated to remain an extremely dangerous major hurricane while it moves near the northwestern Bahamas and approaches the Florida peninsula into early next week.

A life-threatening storm surge will raise water levels by as much as 10 to 15 feet above normal tide levels in areas of onshore winds in the northwestern Bahamas.

Near the coast,the surge will be accompanied by large and destructive waves.
