pounding and the northwest winds coming around as that eye continues to start to move away. now, as we take a little quieter look, this is the jupiter lighthouse in jupiter, florida. you can see the clouds, a little calmer north of miami. miami beach, right there. we'll go back to thrace jupiter right there. we want to go a little further up the coast a little bit and you'll be able to see what we've got going is up south carolina because they have evacuations there. just cloudy skies right now, no rain in that area. our beaches, which a we're compare to what we just showed you to be in a lot better shape but they could still have some storm surge and strong rains but at larntic beach is looking okay. so the brunt of it going on right now alyssa in naws nassau
approaches the coast of florida. there has never been a category 4 or 5 storm to make landfall in florida so certainly devastation expected there as this massive category 4 storm blows closer to the peninsula there. so lets go ahead and get you have the latest information. 140 miles per hour, moving to the northwest at 14 miles per hour. and again, as bill was pint og out. very close to nassau bahamas. it will approach florida later today and it looks like hang around florida throughout friday. friday at 8:00 a.m. in the morning. i've shown you this track briefly before, 145 miles an hour winds would be moving right over the port. and the winds are going to be felt inland as well toward the orlando area. this storm going to ride the florida coast and stay out to sea off the coast of georgia, south carolina and still for us, showing some good news as
but i want to bring you into a closer look at that. you can really see how far away its from us. still in the wilmington area in the cone of uncertainty but that hasn't changed since 5:00 a.m. this morning. and we like to see consistency now as we approach the final frame that we'll start to see the impacts. sunday morning, 8:00 a.m., 85 miles per hour. that puts us as a category 1 storm weakening into a tropical storm then as we head into monday. mean for us. rain less than generally two inches so i have bumped up those rainfall totals just a hair. durham, chapel hill. generally speaking winds much less. less than 25 miles per hour. those are going to be gusts. then we're in the area of orange. this includes raleigh, harnett county cumberland koant ease. these areas could receive 2-4 inches of rain, wind gufghts between 25-35 miles per hour.
isolated areas such as southern portions of sampson, cumberland and wayne counties that could receive up to six inches of rain. winds looks like they're going to top out 25-35 miles per hour. once you cup elementary the sat saturated grounds you could see do you understand trees and power lines so make sure as we've been talking throughout the week, you have batteries in your flashlights and you're prepared if you would lows power as we head into saturday. today, this is looking pretty gray outside. 69 degrees right now, this is a live picture. this associated with these area of showers thoafs moving inland through today and could arrive as we head into the afternoon hours. they're going to be very light in nature, very isolated but if you want to be on the dry side dig out your umbrella. you will need it friday and saturday. 73 our afternoon high. we'll drop back to 70 as we
towards 9:00 this evening. i do think there will be a potential that these showers hang around tonight and friday. so as far as the timing is concerned, isolated showers, right around the 95 corridor for that drive home. they continue to spread westward as we head overnight tonight. so don't be surprised you wake up to wet weather tomorrow morning and if you do, this is not associated with matthew. this is again those showers moving in from the east coast. they continue, scattered throwtd the day on friday and then watch what happens. we could see a lull first thing now saturday morning. then here comes those outer bands of matthew. it would be close to daybreak as we head into saturday and it looks like that wet weather is going to stick around for saturday, wreez breezy as well. 69 in wilmington. afternoon highs in the low 70s. tonight passing showers possible, won't be quite as cool as the low near 66 is anticipated. and then we'll get to the next
towards saturday. and most of matthew out of here by first thing sunday morning. allowing us to see sunshine and some dry weather which we'll need by sunday afternoon. >> we are holding tough until sunday gets here. >> i think the million dollar question is where is it going? >> we have to watch the tracks. bill and i were talking that's pretty uncharacteristic but we saw julia earlier this season kind of circle aroun a lot of times they will lows the characteristics by that time. >> thanks so much alyssa. touching first photos of a new family, but how much is it worthed? coming up a new father goes viral over a very silly hospital bill. >> yeah i can't believe that one. all right don't forget. tonight is a big night.
