Hurricane Dorian continued to slowly intensify Wednesday night with 85 mph winds as the 10 pm Advisory.

Dorian is still expected to threaten the Central Florida Coast as a major hurricane, with 115 mph winds or more, by late Sunday.

After crossing the Florida Peninsula, the hurricane models have been clustering more toward an extreme Northeastern Gulf threat thereafter...perhaps impacting portions of the Florida Panhandle.

A lot however can change in the days ahead.

In addition to the Bahamas and Florida, residents along the Northern Gulf Coast should continue to monitor Dorian through the holiday weekend in case there are major changes.
