Updated on September 3, 2019 5:57 pm
Hurricane Dorian continues to weaken as it heads northwest through the warm Atlantic waters. As of 5 p.m., the hurricane warning from the Sebastian inlet to the Jupiter inlet has been downgraded to a tropical storm warning, but all tropical watches/warnings south of the Jupiter inlet have been discontinued.
As of 5 pm Tuesday, Hurricane Dorian continues a forward motion to the northwest, now at 6 mph, which is the average speed of someone jogging.
Life-threatening storm surge, tropical storm force winds and periods of heavy rain continue along Florida’s Treasure Coast and Space Coast. The category 2 storm is expected to move north-northwest and parallel the Atlantic Coast, with those same hazards spreading north to the First Coast through Wednesday and early Thursday.
A continually growing eye and expanding hurricane and tropical-storm-force winds are due to the gradual weakening of Dorian.
