Down to the CAT 1 with 85MPH but the eyewall is moving over Charleston and should bring widespread 75+MPH winds to the area.

Folly Beach has to be getting raked. That N/NW eyewall looks pretty strong on radar.

For the past day or so, the southern half of the circulation has seemed anemic compared to the northern eye wall and out from there.  I wonder if it has been ingesting dry air from the continent as the circulation pulls down and around, contributing to the general weakening trend.

The following is from the police department in St. Marys, GA, which is Camden County just over the state line from Jacksonville.  It sounds like they've taken damage but thankfully nothing catastrophic.  The condition of Cumberland Island, the National Park and barrier island off of St. Marys may be another story following the storm surge.

NOTICE!!
Citizens, Visitors, Friends, Families, it is still not safe. ALL the bridges in the city are blocked off with barricades for DOT to inspect them. If you're driving over them, it will prolong the DOT, inspection.

They cannot be driven across, please don't remove or go around the barricades. Some areas are going to be blocked completely in by barricades, Go Home!

There are still a number of places where trees and power lines are lying in the roadways and in yards. These areas are dangerous until power companies can render them safe.

DO NOT APPROACH or DRIVE ACROSS

The Camden County EMA Director will announce the all clear to allow people return to the county once all the roadways have been cleared and areas made safe for citizen travel.

Hurricane Matthew

The recurve back toward the Bahamas seems off the table now as the forecast track now has Matthew heading due east out to sea.  He's off NC this morning as a min Cat 1, but heading out of the picture.

Death toll in Haiti over 900 now.

EDIT:  Some model ensembles still show the recurve, but more go out to sea, thus driving the forecast track.

The Bahamas and everybody else, especially Haiti, have seen enough from this system.  Hopefully with Matthew headed out to sea everybody's rebuilding efforts can begin.

Hurricane Matthew

Final advisory on Matthew was issued yesterday.  Remnants heading out to sea and losing tropical characteristics.

Not really even distinguishable on satellite anymore, having been absorbed into a frontal boundary.

Amazing how quickly we can go from a Cat 4 hurricane to non-existence in a matter of about four days.
