6:18 pm
every single possibility is in the envelope through the weekend. the good news is you have time to monitor the forecast and make preparations. at this point it is too early to overreact to anyone situation. right now matthew is heading up 20 eastern tip of cuba and into the bahamas. this is a water teat storms to either maintain or weekend. the temperatures are way above 80 degrees, a difference of six degrees. there is no question that the storm will hold strength or even intensify heading for the bahamas. there's a good consensus with the models that take us into the southeastern u.s. or just offshore and will start to hook it around the coast line.
6:19 pm
pardon the pun -- we have everything from a direct hit to a brush to a miss, anything is possible at this point. as we take a closer look at this potential track, the official track from the national hurricane center texas over the bahamas and into southeastern u.s., then curves that close to new england. but don't focus on this on impact or may not feel the impact. temperatures will slide back into the 40's overnight, mostly clear skies now but there are clouds to the west that get trapped in the atmosphere. if you are watching from western massachusetts to new york, you will likely wake up to cloud
6:20 pm
this is some of the energy that will be responsible for guiding matthew either up the eastern seaboard, out to see, or leaving it parked off the responsible f. we just don't know. 40's is what we are certain of, a partly cloudy sky and a touch of drizzle, high pressure still building south which adds up to a nice day, but the morning hours start out with clouds and the pocket of drizzle. tomorrow. it will be patchy and quick to burn off. weather-wise, i don't want you to focus too much on matthew and get worried about it because we have a lot of nice weather coming up right through most of the rest of the week. if we do get impacted by matthew, it will likely be sunday and monday.
