Fiona will be a Hurricane any moment, the powers are there.
over night so far zero change on tracking, as awaited the storm is dropping pressure and growing powers.
PR is already for most part under TS Force Winds and they will feel near Hurricane or by then Hurricane Force winds in just a little bit.
Most TS forces extend from the Center out towards the N, NE, E and SE of the Center the farest, also a good chunk towards the NW.
The near Hurricane Force winds and higher forces extend only off the Center to the NE.
The Storm will touch the SW Corner of PR the next hours and by this moment looks like it will continue it's WNW Tracking.
That means for us here in DR, specially the East Shores:
We will have a 80-85mphrs Hurricane Centered right of the Cape/Cabo Engaño to see the phenomenom with the own eyes tonight somewhere Midnight/3:00AM.
The Storm should continue it's slow pace WNW-NW,
so we will have TS Force winds right over or at least just some very few miles away for a minimum 10 10hrs and that could also extend easily to 15hrs.
It will reach us first with it's NW Quadrant, then it should go calmer as we will be on the weak W and SW Quadrants where strong winds do not reach out far from the Center, and once it passed our area towards WNW/NW from Punta Cana we will get the Southern Quadrant, which contains more Thunderstorm Activity than the NW or W of this Storm.
By Tuesday Noon/early afternoon even our North Coast should be out of the Southern Quadrant of heavy weather, while the Ocean of course will continue to bounce on the beaches.
Since it is so close to PR, since this morning I have difficulties to really see/mark the Center,
I take it's position so far from what Sat and H-Hunters mark as the Center.
So far here on the East we are today at my place/around 7 miles off the beach line, very calm with rain on/off in smaller amount since last night.
Once it arrived, everybody should post the actual local weather conditions for the different areas of DR here.
