Named Storm Matthew

PLEASE - do not post in Tropical System threads. This is a READ ONLY information posting location for safety reasons.


Attention US Gulf Coast Residents:

Tropical Storm Matthew formed in the southwestern Caribbean this afternoon. Conditions are favorable for this storm to reach Hurricane status within 36 to 60 hours. Two weather features will be steering this storm to the north after it makes a Nicaragua or Honduras landfall early Saturday. That turn to the north is problematic for residents along the entire Gulf Coast and early computer models are showing a high probability of a Hurricane affecting the Gulf mid to late week, September 29 through October 02. We are watching the development of this system closely and even though tracking is imprecise at this time, we are recommending that residents of the Gulf Coast states monitor this storm carefully and have your Hurricane Preparedness plans in place. We will post updates as conditions warrant.
