Hurricane Matthew No Issues Through Saturday At Least
Hurricane Matthew No Issues Through Saturday At Least
With Hurricane Matthew not an issue here until later in the weekend, if it is even an issue at all, we should all sit back and enjoy the nice weather that is coming over the next few days.
We are still fighting an issue with low clouds tonight but many areas are also seeing clear skies. Those areas will be dropping into the 40s tonight away from the coast. Along the coast lows will be in the low to mid 50s.
Out of the low clouds there was actually a downpour that showed up over Long Island this evening but that seemed to be a freak shower. Otherwise radars will remain quiet through at least Saturday afternoon.
Wednesday we should see partly sunny skies developing and we could go mostly sunny later in the afternoon. Highs will be in the 60s. Thursday and Friday look great as high pressure settles overhead and highs in the middle to upper 70s.
Weather models today were all over the place with Hurricane Matthew with solutions ranging from out to sea to up the east coast to looping southward from South Carolina and crossing Florida a second time. Confusion rains. Here is more from JOESTRADAMUS and below is the latest on Hurricane Matthew.

The center of the eye of Matthew made landfall near Juaco, Cuba, around 800 PM EDT (0000 UTC). Matthew is moving toward the north near 9 mph (15 km/h), and this motion is expected to continue through this evening. A turn toward the north-northwest is expected on Wednesday, followed by a northwest turn Wednesday night. Matthew is forecast to move near or over portions of the southeastern and central Bahamas Wednesday, and approach the northwestern Bahamas Wednesday night. Maximum sustained winds are near 140 mph (220 km/h) with higher gusts. Matthew remains 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 at least Thursday night. Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 45 miles (75 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 175 miles (280 km). The minimum central pressure recently reported by reconnaissance aircraft was 949 mb (28.03 inches).
