Hurricane Dorian is expected to continue to gain strength as it moves closer toward Florida. All of Southwest Florida is still within Dorian’s forecast cone as of now.

Right now, Dorian is expected to make landfall on Monday as a Category 4 hurricane. The rate at which the storm is moving is expected to slow down which will mean more rain when it makes its way to land. There is still disagreement within our forecast models the exact impact to Southwest Florida, but the WINK News Weather Authority team is working hard to monitor and forecast this storm as it approaches the east coast.
