palmsOrl Posted August 27, 2019 Report Share Posted August 27, 2019 Okay, so it appears that Tropical Storm Dorian will pose a significant threat to peninsular Florida this weekend, Labor Day Weekend. Currently, the storm is forecast to make landfall on the coast of East Central Florida. This is, of course, subject to change, but track forecasts have improved dramatically in recent years. What is more uncertain is the strength of Dorian. While previously believed that the tropical cyclone would pass directly over Hispaniola, the computer model consensus now has Dorian passing between Hispaniola and Puerto Rico or directly over Puerto Rico. This would cause far less disruption to the storm's circulation and would leave the storm more intact for even greater strengthening between the Antilles and Florida. The official NWS forecast for Orlando already calls for potential tropical storm conditions Friday night and Saturday (30-40 mph gusting to 55 mph). Who has begun making preparations for Dorian? What are you doing to keep your palms and other plants safe during the storm. My whole collection at this point is potted so is more vulnerable but I may be able to just move the plants inside. 3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
