hurricane. that would be delivering a lot of rain. hurricane force winds. not good conditions at all. then up to the georgia coast line. then the south carolina coast line. weakening. that is by early saturday and in to saturday afternoon. we then expect it to take the really sharp turn. there is that loop that you heard that allows the forecast model to that i can loop, possibly hitting the bahammas again for a second time. this time would be weaker and that would be the beginning of next week. >> the yellow is showing the forecast for tropical storm force winds. they could be around the orlando or the daytona beach area going in to parts of georgia and see a
tropical storm force wind. either way it is a major hurricane for much of the southeast. we do have rain in the force cast to start off your weekend. saturday, all because of a cold front and even saturday night. sunday we start to see more in the way of rain moving off of the shore. and then the models with the heavy rain from matthew off of the north carolina coast line moving out there to sea. here is the forecast. plenty of sun and a nice day to end the week. by sunday we are cool and drying out. glenn will have another look at hurricane matthew coming up at
