5:16 am
we just got the latest update from the national hurricane center. matthew is still a powerful category 4 hurricane with 145 miles per hour winds moving 9 at miles per hour bearing down on haiti right now. the eye of matthew is just to the southwest of the western tip of haiti. obviously it's over warm ocean water. we have seen no signs of weakening. matthew will continue as a category 4 hurricane clipping the eastern side of cuba, moving up towards tomorrow. it will weaken somewhat but still a major category 3 hurricane. the latest track has shifted slightly wards the west. it parallels the eastern coastline of florida by thursday night into friday and then back up just off the coastline of south carolina. watch what happens after that. weakening to a category 2 storm but the outer banks on guard as we head into the over night on friday and the very start of the weekend. where does matthew go after that
5:17 am
so the entire east coast is really on alert here. i wouldn't be surprised if tropical storm watches or hurricane watches are issued for parts of florida later on this morning by the national hurricane center. so by saturday the hurricane is still off the outer banks of the carolinas. for us here at home no impact for the start of the weekend. by sunday and potentially into the start of columbus day where matthew goes depends on the jet stream an how it interacts with this cold front comingn. obviously at that point matthew would be in a weaker stage but it does look like if the storm were to track closer to southern new england we could feel some impacts in terms of rainfall if it interact with that front and we could see some gusty wind at the coastline defending on the track. the time frame would be sunday into the start of columbus day. until then we are pretty quite. running in the 50s right now. there's some low clouds in place. some breaks of sunshine. not a lot of weather
5:18 am
gloomy start but the sun does break out. a blend of sun and clouds tomorrow, wednesday looks great, thursday and even friday. high pressure still in control, plenty of sunshine and a bit of a warming trend too. around 60 at the coast today. tonight into the 40s in the suburbs. highs tomorrow into the 60s. pretty normal for the beginning of october standards. and then a warm up. 71 on thursday looks beautiful. the mid 70s on friday. increasing clouds on saturday. th on matthew for the tail end of the weekend. breanna. >> the first spot s to get backed up with traffic but so far there's nothing there. that will probably change by 5:30. right now though 24 north is clear so is route 3. getting to the split is going to be easy. checking out the drive in from the west, there's some construction on worcester but it's on 290 by the belmont street over pass so your ride in on pike is wide open. in
