Quote: I just dont see how Dorian will move NW or NNW for very long. It looks more like a future track to the N and then NE to me. Can an expert weigh-in?
No expert, but I have the same thoughts, that ridge is massive and strong, Dorian's only path out appears to be NE. The dry air is all the way across the Panhandle and filling in the rest of the state fast. The storm is becoming very elongated along the N/S axis.
Just glad its finally moving. Structure looks really bad this AM (on radar and IR), all the energy is NE, eye has clouded over, outflow to the NW is crumbling, winds down and pressure up. Mercifully the beast is finally giving up on the Bahamas and moving on.
