night into sunday, early a.m. hours. still holding on to that category one hurricane force. then we see the track drop south, starting to dip by monday at 2:00 in the morning. then moving through tuesday as well, weakening considerably to 45 miles per hour. while it does look to make its way back to the bahamas, dangerous for an area already hit, the good news so to speak, it will be weakening into a tropical depression, meaning it will no longer be in a hurricane category and winds will be weaker. looking at the radar. right now it is a dangerous situation. strong winds with the eyewall of the storm. and that circle around the center. what you're not seeing is parts of south carolina and into georgia, there are high winds reported in those areas. just because things clear doesn't mean the storm is over yet. yellow and orange, you see heavy rain moving through north
carolina, wilmington seeing strong activity. that's going to continue to press through. the eyewall itself has been hitting charleston hard. once they get back to the area to look at damage, it will be extensive in those zones. for us, we are very fortunate that matthew will be stopped in a way by a cold front. this is to the west and bringing rain into central and western pennsylvania. that cold front will be pressing this direction. as matthew tracks northeast, it will be stopped by a cold front. we will grab moisture from matthew, pull it over the area. we have clouds in place. rain is pressing with the cold front. chances of rain are in the forecast. doesn't look like we will see that serious damage that would be associated with hurricane force winds or storm surge. for us, just showers in the forecast. likely spotty activity through the afternoon. better chance late day into tonight.
