the shore while still at hurricane strength. >> the big story is where that storm is headed next. we have team coverage, our meteorologists tracking matthew as it turns to the u.s. and cecily tynan starts us off this evening live at the big board with the latest. >> reporter: matthew made landfall over the southern tip of haiti this morning as a category 4 hurricane, first time since 1964. now this storm a powerful 4 hurricane is setting its sights on cuba, you see the high clearly there, close to the coast of cuba, maximum sustained winds, the hurricane warnings are extended through haiti and the bahamas, and we have hurricane watches and tropical storm watches now for parts of florida, because eastern florida could be within the track of this storm system. this is the latest on hurricane matthew, 30 miles
5:01 pm
south-southwest of cuba. it's skirting cuba and heading to the bahamas and keeping its category 4 status and desclerosing a bit because of its interaction with land down to 130 miles per hour and then it looks to steer toward florida, close to eastern florida by late in the week and this shows it as a major hurricane. still a category 4 hurricane bear in mind, even if the storm system doesn't make a direct hit on florida, tropical storm force winds make a turn to the center and florida gets battered and it shows it making a beeline for the carolinas. likely hitting southeastern north carolina saturday afternoon but as a category 2 hurricane and then coming close off shower to our region by sunday afternoon. this ultimate track depends on several different factors.
5:02 pm
lets head to adam joseph with more on that. >> reporter: there is complexity in the atmosphere and when matthew approaches, the area of northern florida as well as southern georgia and north carolina. we have a cold front coming in from the north and west and the cold front comes in it depends how strong the energy is, whether it kicks matthew off the coast or pulls matthew inward. this would be over the weekend late saturday into the day on sunday. this is sunday at noon, where the model is showing matthew off the carolinas and this energy interacting with it. again, what happens when they come together, that is almost four days away. and it's something we have to track to see exactly how they combine and if they combine or if they stay apart. as we look at the latest model data, every line is a different model. since this morning, they have shifted farther to the south and east.
5:03 pm
yesterday and even this morning, they were closer to the coastline and the majority of them were over the coast of new jersey and delaware, the latest runs that keep coming in are moving these farther to the south and east meaning that that energy wants to kick it away rather than pull it up the entire eastern seaboard. this is good news if it stays that way, but this is one change in one day and more changes will come as we go through the rest of the week, but the changes today indicate that we would still get heavy rain here on saturday no matter if it goes out to sea or not. the storm at this point looks further offshore from our shore line but still brings strong rip currents and rough surf, when meteorologist, cecily tynan, comes back there is more from matthew and our forecast for the rest of the week. our coverage continues now with sara bloomquist, she is live at the satellite center with the damage matthew has already done and how the south is bracing tonight.
