TROPICAL UPDATE – Hurricane Matthew is a Category 3 storm as of Friday afternoon. The westward track continues into the weekend, before the cyclone turns northward. A track into the Southwest Atlantic by early next week is likely. Later next week and weekend the system could affect parts of the United States from the Mid-Atlantic to New England.
Another tropical wave farther east may gradually organize over the days ahead, so we’ll be tracking that, as well.
