Hurricane Matthew is headed for a Cat 3 storm with over 100 mph winds....south of Haiti. He will continue west then turn north. Most models are taking him away from the N.Carolina coast next week and out to sea....but he needs to be watched carefully. Below....his track by The Hurricane Center.
Below...The GFS Model - valid for late next week - shows Hurricane Matthew off N. Carolina and then it turns it out to sea. Most of the models do that...but hurricanes can do anything and it's too far out to call the shots at this time.

Tropical system approaching Windwards will get named today...Matthew....and will likely become a major hurricane to affect Haiti- Cuba - and then U.S. next week. First...below...a close up look at this system- still getting it's act together. After that....a look at the various models. All models show this system to become intense.....timing is the problem.

Below...first - look at tropical Atlantic. We are paying attention to system in south central Atlantic that will likely become the next tropical storm then hurricane and be given the name Matthew. This system will need to be watched as we expect it to become a formidable hurricane and could threaten The U.S.
Below...a look at what the models are doing with this tropical system. Order - Canadian....GFS.....Euro. Be safe.
