Watching Hurricane Matthew…
The ugly weather should come to an end today with just a slight chance of a shower today and tomorrow. Highs will be mainly in the upper 60’s to low 70’s.
Wednesday and Thursday then look nice with highs in the mid to upper 60’s Wednesday and the low to mid 70’s in most places Thursday.
Then we will have to watch Hurricane Matthew very closely. Hurricane Matthew is currently a category 4 hurricane in the Caribbean Sea with maximum sustained winds of 130 mph. Matthew will move northward across Haiti, today and tomorrow, then through the Bahamas Wednesday and Thursday. Matthew should then reach just off shore the coastal Carolinas Friday, then turn northeastward just prior to making landfall, likely brushing Cape Hatteras, NC as it continues northeastward and heads up the coast, off shore. It is still too early to tell exactly how close the storm will come to the Carolina Coast and how closely it will track northward along the East Coast. Right now it does appear that it could come close enough to bring the Coastal Carolinas and the New York City and Allentown Metropolitan areas some significant rain this coming weekend, yet remain just far enough off shore to spare everyone from the strong winds. However, it is still much too early to tell exactly what the track of this storm will be and right now this is just a best guess bases on the latest data. Any track closer to the coast would cause landfall somewhere between the Carolinas and New England. There is even the possibility that the storm could make landfall on Florida if it continues westward before turning more north. In addition, it could still track further out to sea which would leave us with nice weather instead. Please be sure to check back for updates this evening.
