NWS Lake Charles tropical update 8.27.19
Published 3:23 pm Tuesday, August 27, 2019
The National Weather Service in Lake Charles is monitoring Tropical Storm Dorian in the eastern Caribbean Sea. This system has the potential to become a hurricane before it reaches Puerto Rico on Wednesday and Florida late this weekend. Depending on where Dorian tracks across Florida will determine if it will come in the Gulf of Mexico. If it moves across southern Florida, it could be in the Gulf of Mexico next week. If it moves across northern Florida, it may not enter the Gulf of Mexico at all. Dorian is still worth monitoring for Texas and Louisiana.
