DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 200 PM EDT (1800 UTC), the center of Hurricane Dorian was located
near latitude 36.2 North, longitude 73.7 West. Dorian is moving
toward the northeast near 21 mph (34 km/h) and this general motion
with an additional increase in forward speed is expected through
Saturday night. On the forecast track, the center of Dorian will
move away from the coast of North Carolina during the next several
hours.  The center should move to the southeast of extreme
southeastern New England tonight and Saturday morning, and then
across Nova Scotia late Saturday or Saturday night.

Maximum sustained winds are near 90 mph (150 km/h) with higher
gusts.  Slow weakening is expected through Saturday.  After that,
Dorian is forecast to become a post-tropical cyclone with
hurricane-force winds by Saturday night as it approaches Nova
Scotia.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 75 miles (120 km) from
the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 220
miles (350 km).  During the last two hours, several station on the
North Carolina Outer Banks north of Cape Hatteras reported
sustained winds of 70-80 mph with higher gusts.  These winds are
now decreasing.

The minimum central pressure reported by and Air Force Reserve
Hurricane Hunter aircraft is 958 mb (28.29 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
WIND:  Hurricane conditions are ending along portions of the
North Carolina coast.  Tropical storm conditions should continue on
portions of the the southeastern coast of Virginia, northeastern
coast of North Carolina, and the Lower Chesapeake Bay for a few more
hours.  Tropical storm conditions are expected in the warning area
over portions of extreme southeastern Massachusetts tonight or early
Saturday, and in the warning area in Maine Saturday afternoon.

Hurricane conditions are expected in eastern Nova Scotia Saturday,
and they are possible in the Hurricane Watch area in Canada
Saturday or Saturday night.  Tropical storm conditions are expected
in the Tropical Storm Warning area in Canada by Saturday, and they
are possible in the Tropical Storm Watch area in Canada Saturday and
Saturday night.

STORM SURGE:  The combination of a dangerous storm surge and the
tide will cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by
rising waters moving inland from the shoreline.  The water could
reach the following heights above ground somewhere in the indicated
areas if the peak surge occurs at the time of high tide...

Salter Path to Duck NC, including Pamlico and Albemarle
Sounds...4 to 7 ft
Duck NC to Poquoson VA, including Hampton Roads...2 to 4 ft

Water levels could begin to rise well in advance of the arrival of
strong winds.  The surge will be accompanied by large and
destructive waves.  Surge-related flooding depends on the how close
the center of Dorian comes to the coast, and can vary greatly over
short distances.  For information specific to your area, please see
products issued by your local National Weather Service forecast
office.

Storm Surge is likely in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, the Southwest
Coast of Newfoundland, and Eastern Nova Scotia.

RAINFALL:  Dorian is expected to produce the following rainfall
totals through Saturday:

Northeastern North Carolina into far southeast Virginia...Additional
1 to 4 inches, isolated storm totals 10 inches.

Extreme Southeastern New England...2 to 4 inches.

Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island...3 to 5 inches.

Newfoundland...1 to 2 inches

This rainfall may cause life-threatening flash floods

SURF:  Large swells will affect much of the southeastern United
States coast from northern Florida through North Carolina during
the next couple of days.  These swells are likely to cause
life-threatening surf and rip current conditions. Please consult
products from your local weather office.
