Big Changes in Hurricane Matthew's Track

It appears New England may have dodged a bullet

    Thanks to high-pressure from Canada, New England is having some beautiful weather this week, with sunshine and seasonable temperatures. Lows last night reached into the 30s, with many spots having a light frost and fog.


    Today turned beautiful, with high temperatures in the 60s, a little cooler at the shore with a light wind in from the ocean. More of the same is expected overnight tonight and the over the next few days with a warming trend. Overnight lows will once again be in the 30s and 40s, sunshine tomorrow with a high temperature in the 70s, and the same should happen on Friday.

    The weekend forecast has improved dramatically, as it looks like Hurricane Matthew will now stall off the coast of the southeastern United States.

    Citizens from Florida through Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina are in the path of a major hurricane. Category 3 Hurricane Matthew hugs to the coast there for the next several days.

    Matthew is still a major hurricane and may cause widespread damage. But for New England it now appears we only have a weak front with a few showers late Saturday and Saturday night to contend with this weekend.

    Saturday morning and most of Sunday should be dry with temperatures in the 60s.

    The prospect for heavy rain and wind is pretty much off the table for now. But we will keep you posted.
