Hurricane Matthew Begins To Turn

Completed Counterclockwise Loop

Warnings Up For Jamaica

Hurricane Matthew did a counterclockwise loop this afternoon and you can follow it along as long as the eye remains visible on the water vapor loop. It may be getting ready to move northwestward toward Jamaica and Haiti. Also reconnaissance reports show that pressures have fallen from 946 mb to 940 mb in the last few hours. We will see if this is the beginning of another round of strengthening or just a normal fluctuation.

DISCUSSION AND 48-HOUR OUTLOOK
------------------------------
At 500 PM EDT (2100 UTC), the eye of Hurricane Matthew was located
near latitude 13.5 North, longitude 73.4 West.  Matthew is currently
drifting toward the northwest near 3 mph (6 km/h), and a slow
northwestward motion is expected to continue through tonight.  A
turn toward the north-northwest with an increase in forward speed
are expected Sunday, followed by a turn toward the north on Monday.
On the forecast track, the center of Matthew will approach Jamaica
and southwestern Haiti on Monday.

Data from a NOAA Hurricane Hunter aircraft indicate that maximum
sustained winds are near 150 mph (240 km/h) with higher gusts.
Matthew is a category 4 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane
Wind Scale.  Some fluctuations in intensity are possible during the
next couple of days, but Matthew is expected to remain a powerful
hurricane through Monday.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 25 miles (35 km) from the
center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 205 miles
(335 km).

The latest minimum central pressure based on data from the aircraft
is 940 mb (27.76 inches).
