September 19 Hurricane Fiona Update And Video Plus Local Weather

Maryland Weather

September 19, 2022

Monday Morning Update 

I want to start with the big weather story of Hurricane Fiona which is crossing the Dominican Republic this morning and getting stronger. Heavy rain continues to pound Puerto Rico and I’ve placed the live radar widget below. 

Locally we have very warm weather but a strong cold front will bring in a taste of Fall with the arrival of Autumn later this week. That is the system that will push Fiona away from the East Coast. 

Hurricane Fiona Update

As of 5 AM EST the eye was located 15 miles from Punta Cana on the Dominican Republic.  We can see the eye over land this morning. Winds are up to 90 mph, and it is expected to continue strengthening as it travels north back over the water this week.

Statement From The National Hurricane Center:

These rains will continue to produce life-threatening and catastrophic flooding along with mudslides and landslides across Puerto Rico. Life-threatening flash and urban flooding is likely for eastern portions of the Dominican Republic.



Heavy rain continues to pound Puerto Rico on the west side of the circulation. Spots have already recorded 20 to over 25 inches of rain

Morning Surface Weather

Warmer winds will surge our temps up again today. We have about a 20% chance for an afternoon shower.

That cold front will reach us late Wednesday with much cooler air behind it. We will get a taste of Fall by the end of the week. This system will also push Fiona off the east coast.
