All eyes are on Hurricane Dorian this morning as the Category 5 storm continues to slam the Bahamas with 165 mph sustained winds.

Due to lack of upper level steering wind, Dorian has nearly stalled out over the Bahamas. It will slowly begin a northerly shift over the next 24 hours and begin to slide up the east coast of Florida through Wednesday morning.

The east coast of Florida and the coastlines of Georgia/Carolinas remain well inside of the National Hurricane Center's forecast cone.

Though it's still uncertain if the any of those states get a catastrophic landfall or if the core of highest wind remains offshore. Both of this scenarios remain possible. Please follow the forecast closely if you plan to travel to the southeast in the coming days.

Back in central Indiana, morning fog continues to erode and will make way for a mainly sunny sky through the afternoon. A seasonably warm day with highs climbing into the mid 80s.

Tuesday looks to be our warmest day of the week as highs climb to near 90 with a gusty southwest wind up to 30 mph. Skies remain mostly sunny.

Daylight hours should be dry on Tuesday, but we'll watching and waiting on a cold front triggering heavy storms to our north-northwest Tuesday evening.

The Storm Prediction Center has placed the northern tier of the state under a level 2 of 5 (overnight Tuesday into Wednesday morning) with damaging wind gusts possible.

The front will pass around 2 am but it's unclear if there will be enough lift/instability to keep these storms going overnight... but it's a possibility.

This front delivers a stronger push of "autumn-ish" air to central Indiana that delivers multiple mornings in the 50s and mainly sunny afternoons in the 70s starting Wednesday.
