the present forecast but we'll give you what we know at this point. right now the hurricane still a category 4, wind sustained at 145 miles per hour. it's now past haiti where they got nearly 30 inches of rain and you can see the eye of matthew redevelop over the waters. it has a classic look as it is about to hit the southern tip of cuba and head towards the bahamas. we have hurricane warnings for the turks and caicos, the entire bahamas chain as well as southern cuba and now hurricane watches on the east coast of florida, where the official track of matthew comes very close to the shores of florida. by wednesday evening, still a category 4 hurricane as it blasts through the bahamas, it comes close to the coast of florida here early friday morning and then this is the official track of the hurricane

4:50 pm
this afternoon and the fog this morning. temperature-wise mid to upper 60s across the board and only in the upper 50s in the poconos. satellite and radar, we did have some sun return after the fog burned off and low clouds this morning. and then the clouds rushed back in with the wind coming in off the atlantic and high clouds from the south we are being merged by the two. clouds stick around and areas of fog redevelop once again and if you have seen fog the last couple of mornings, expect it again tomorrow morning, 48 to 55 degrees for the overnight low. tomorrow we have a similar story the storm will reemerge late morning especially north of philadelphia through the afternoon. 73 allentown and 72 philadelphia and 69 in dover and 70 in millville and upper 60s along the shore. a couple of scenarios of what could or could not happen with matthew as we are watching him. scenario number one. it could push directly up the coast past the carolinas. that would indicate that we have

the cold front which is going to be in the upper part of the atmosphere over the weekend. this is the weekend time frame. if the trough is too week, it moves the hurricane up the coastline and strong gusty winds saturday into sunday and heavy rains rough surf and possibly to moderate to major beach erosion, and some models are saying this and indicating that with this morning that the trough is very strong and as it pushes in over the weekend it pushes it off to sea and breezy with rain still around here and the heaviest stays off the shore and the surf stays rough with some beach erosion but not much in the way of coastal flooding. the update is not out yet but this is it from 2:00 p.m. s. winds sustained at 45 miles per hour and curves over the bahamas as a category 4.
4:52 pm
and you watch the track east of florida friday morning, this could go anywhere within the red zone, called the cone of uncertainty. the weather service put the track in the mid of the cone and hits the carolinas early saturday morning and then the curve out to sea, does it go out to sea in this area or to the north and west. all of that will be changing over the next several days, but too close by to say for sure. the exclusive accuweather seven-day forecast morning fog and returning sun tomorrow, at 72, and fog again early on thursday morning and then sunny in the afternoon and 75, partly sunny friday and 76 and we watch the weekend no matter what the track it looks like clouds come in with some rain over the weekend weather, out to sea or not. especially saturday of 73. could be lingering rain if it's closer by on sunday at 67 and we start to dry out columbus day at the beginning of the next week.
