Meteorologists expect Hurricane Dorian to have no direct effect on Pennsylvania.

Hurricane Dorian is inching closer to the southeastern United States. Officials from Florida to Virginia are issuing warnings and watches as the Category 2 storm creeps closer to the eastern seaboard. 

In Pennsylvania, "no direct impact from Dorian is expected," said John Banghoff, a meteorologists for the National Weather Service in State College.

Dorian was expected to slam the coast of Florida starting late Tuesday and curve northwest. The most Pennsylvania is expected to see as a result of Dorian is clouds.

There are no "imminent threats" to Pennsylvania, Banghoff added.
