Tonights GFS is just bad for the SE coast. The eye follows the coast of Florida and Ga and makes a direct hit on Charleston SC.

0z GFS continuing the trouble trends for the SE Coast line. Charleston takes a direct impact this go around.

Some of you may not be old enough to remember Hugo (1989).  That's what came to mind when I saw the projected path last night...

I remember Hugo quite well.  Does that mean I'm old?

I remember it well too.

No comment. ;)


Seriously though, it was the "bad one" in recent memory until Andrew came along in 1992.

The 6z HWRF... [ Guests cannot view attachments ]

Taken verbatim, that would be a Cat 3 hurricane into SC, with winds near 120 mph. And with that pressure reading it would probably actually even have stronger winds then what is showing, possibly even Cat 4 winds.

This is shaping up to be a catastrophic storm for the U.S.  It's been a long time since the Southeast has had a major storm like this and I hope all the resources are in place to respond properly.  Every run seems to bring Matthew farther West with more impacts on the coast.

Aw man. My youngest is a senior at College of Charleston. They had to update their evacuation plans yesterday. It's also supposed to be Parent's Weekend this weekend. Last year they had to cancel because they got 10+ inches of rain and had horrific flooding.

We were supposed to leave on Saturday. Those plans just might be ratcheted up a bit early.

Yep. A lot of people do not realize how bad that is for Haiti. There is no telling how many fatalities there will be.

Latest satellite shows effects of passing over the mountainous tip of Haiti.  Next update should show some weakening, but it will be back over water soon.

The southern tip of Florida is now under a Tropical Storm Watch with the middle of the East coast of Florida under a Hurricane watch.  I suspect as the models get more organized we're going to see more of these moving up the coast with FL and NC already having declared states of emergency in preparation for the storm.
