As of 2 pm today, major Hurricane Matthew is through Haiti now with eastern Cuba in it’s sights. The storm is still a category 4 with 145 sustained winds with higher gusts. Still moving north but expected to start a more NW turn later on.

You can see from the map above, the NHC keeps Matthew east of us. That is good news. I suspect Matthew will start interacting with the approaching cold front. If that happens, we should receive health amounts of rain and wind later on Saturday into Sunday morning.

There are currently Hurricane watches up for the east coast of Florida. The Governors of FL and North Carolina have already declared state of emergencies. I also just read that mandatory evacuations have been ordered for along the immediate coast of South Carolina.

Look for Hurricane Watches to be extended further north as time goes on and even Watches into Warnings.

After Cuba, the Bahamas will be impacted Wednesday. Then Florida on Thursday, especially afternoon on.
